Parker's rendition...



Last night at bedtime, Parker was saying his usual "night night" prayer and decided to change it a little! He said, "Now I lay me, down to sleep, I pray the Lord my soul to keep. May angels watch me through the night, and wake me up, in the middle of the night..." Jonathan quickly replied, "Uhhhhh, scratch that!" I cracked up! Parker quickly corrected it to "in the morning light!"

I don't know about you, but when I was little, it had a different ending! More morbid... I like this version better! (Does this make his prayer a NIV?)

We'll call it the PRV--Parker's Revised Version!

LOL I love how Parker reworded it. ;) My kids learned the modern version too. The old one is kind of creepy when you think about it. Probably gave kids nightmares! ;)

Every kid's dream, to be awake in the middle of the night. Why is it we want what we cannot have? When he gets older, he'll find out it's not such fun, huh? :)

I've heard a couple of different renditions and I don't like the old very at all! I like Parkers "and wake me up in the middle of the night" -- I cracked up when I read that! Kids...gotta love 'em!

Everytime I read about something funny Parker said, I literally giggle at the computer. He cracks me up. You never know what he'll say...and with a serious expression!

Too cute! Our boys are beyond those "childish" prayers, they make up their own, which is usually the same thing every night, lol! I guess it doesn't matter, God is the one they are talking too, not me, lol!

Your kids are soooooooo cute!! Enjoy them while they're little, because they grow up soooooo fast!
