Pristine has been very specific with her prayers lately. She would thank God for the day, the blessings we received, for her friends at school, for her mom and dad and some extras at the end. Here’s the “extra” request last night:
Dear God, please give me 3 brothers and 2 sisters. Thank you. Hurry please?
Our room was dark so I can’t see the look of her face but her voice was downright serious. She really thinks my body can handle 3 boys and 2 girl AT THE SAME TIME because she says, “there’s plenty of space in there”. Yikes.
Then she made the sign of the cross and lay down. As soon as her head touched the pillow, she jerked and sat up again:
And God? Please make them cute, just like me. Thank you, good night.
