Stop praying and eat your dinner!

Every night we pray with Katie before she goes to sleep. She closes her eyes and puts her hands together and off we go. We thank God for what he has done for us that day and we always pray for someone else. As her understanding and language developed we started to ask her what or who she wanted to pray for.

Katie has surprised us a few times suggesting people that we would never have thought of praying for, and it's been great. However, we struggled a little this week when she wanted to pray for cars! So we prayed and after the Amen, she said 'my turn' and this is how it went:

'Thank you God cars, thank you God dangerous, Amen!'

Then, the other day half way through dinner she wanted to pray. So she did, then she wanted to pray again, so she did, and again, and again, until eventually daddy interrupted her with 'Stop praying and eat your dinner!' Is this acceptable or should we be encouraging holy habits?

Big bed

Well last night was the first night in the big bed. Yesterday morning we dismantled the cot and turned it into a small beautiful bed, for our small beautiful daughter.

Will she stay in it?

Should we have bought a bed rail? Should we have placed an extra duvet on the floor incase she rolls out? Should we have bought a door gate so that she can't escape?

We havn't done any of those, but the first night was a success. Katie and Mungo were very happy. Katie slept through with no bumps (not that we heard anyway), and wandered into our room when she woke up at 7.45am. Hooray!

Just hope she doesn't start waking early.
