After reading Amy's post this week on meals, laundry and attitudes I wanted to share about our meal times. At dinner time all of my kids want to pray and while I am excited about this it was dragging on forever and they were praying for everything but the food (toys, pets, trips that happened weeks ago! etc...) and if they didn't get to pray they were all upset. So Daddy came up with a new idea..."picking numbers". Daddy pickes a number 1-10 and then each kid picks a number and whoever is closest gets to pray. They absoultely love this and we get to eat warm meals again. LOL. Then they each know that they can have a turn praying before bed. However they still get quite off topic and forget to actually pray for our food. We don't mind though because we enjoy and I am sure God even gets a chuckle out of some of their prayers.
