Dear Jesus...

Tonight Ellie was having trouble obeying and staying in bed after she was supposed to be going to sleep. So, after she got in trouble for getting out of bed, I asked her if she wanted to pray and ask Jesus to help her obey next time she was tempted to get out of bed. She said she did. So we rehearsed the prayer she should pray the next time she felt like getting out of bed instead of going to sleep:

"Dear Jesus, please help me to stay in bed and obey Mommy. Amen."

When we had finished, Ellie said to me, "No, Mommy, we should pray...

'Dear Jesus, please help Mommy's cooking.'"

Now... how is a mother supposed to take that?! I made her cheesy eggs for lunch today and they were just fine... she ate all of them! Well, it looks like I know what I should be working on when we get home from Texas...

Maybe that's not how she meant it... ROFL.... have you been stressed out about cooking lately? Maybe she picked up on that (that you are cooking and don't want to be) and not that its bad.
