Brynn pretend calling Mimi with the base of an old razor after going potty.

In this family, we have a little rule we follow for mealtime prayers.  The person who did not make the meal says the blessing.  Last night, I cooked, so Trey began the prayer.
Side note (that will seem completely unrelated to this post as it rightfully should): We are in the beginning stages of potty training.  Lots of talk about pee pee, poop, toots, etc going on under this roof.  I have found that the easiest way to coax Baby Girl to go while on the potty is to “try to make a toot.”  We have also pleaded with her to tell us when she feels the urge to use the potty.

Back to Trey’s prayer…he begins in the usual way, thanking God for our day, our dinner, our time together…

Brynn is typically an excellent dinnertime prayer listener, remaining very quiet with eyes closed shut (we know this because we are not excellent dinnertime prayer listeners and peek several times throughout to see if her eyes are closed, but I digress…)

Anyway, this particular evening, Brynn proudly interrupts Daddy’s prayer with a familiar noise and blurts out the word “TOOT!!!”

Mommy and Uncle Tarl (who is visiting until his departure to Berlin…boo hoo) have to turn our heads to stifle uncontrollable laughter.

Daddy, ever the responsible adult in this house (wink wink), attempts to take control of the situation by asking Brynn in stern-Daddy voice, “What do you say?”  Brynn is also typically very polite and follows her toots with an “excuse me.”  Nope, not this time.  

This time, without skipping a beat, Brynn boldly announces, “AMEN!!!”

    I am CRACKING UP in my office! Felt like I was there. And the "because we are not excellent dinnertime prayer listeners" line is hilarious, and so familiar! 🙂

    P.S. Could not love the "calling Mimi" photo more! 🙂

    If this is your little girl, I can only imagine what will come out of your son's mouth!
