um...are we bad parents if we tell Kenzie: "It is time to stop praying please and eat before your food gets cold"? Now that she is getting this whole prayer thing down- she won't stop. It is sweet and humbling. It tugs on the emotion strings and all that neat stuff- but when she screams her head off when I try to say amen or if I open my eyes...I feel we are coming upon a little problem. She will ramble on forever about grandma, ju ju, Isaac, boats, trains, popcorn, daddy, mommy, church, rocks and then repeat herself a million times. Sometimes I hear a Jesus and an Amen in there somewhere- in her cute little gibberish- but she isn't closing her prayer by any means- she is far from done... oh what to do? Oh what to do?...it's funny I know-

LOL! April, we have to do that with our three year old. Sometimes she has to peak and bless everything she sees. She'll even forget to bless the food and she says she HAS to say another prayer. The faith of a child, right?

BTW: this is Mary(Jensen)Fosburg

hahaha she is an epic long prayer...I love when they get asked to say the closing prayer in sacrament meeting, and my kids are begging to go to primary. Just have her start the prayer when you start making dinner, so all the timing works out. hahahahha Don't mess with the women’s prayers- yo

I guess that problem is better than some others! I wouldn't know where to begin....When you figure it out, let me know in case my boys decide to do the same thing!

Oh April isnt it fun. I have the same challenge with Isaac. And he always wants to say the prayer for dinner. We have all just learned to smile about it. I bet Kenzie is just darling when she says her prayers. Miss you guys.
