Our Lord

Our toddler moonlights on the weekends as a revelator. Through her, we made a discovery this week that would make Dan Brown blush. We did, in fact, discover Jesus of Nazareth's MIDDLE NAME!!! Read on.....
As you may have read in the previous blog, Sam has been repeating words with increasing proficiency. She's been helping to say the blessing over dinner. This is a rough script of the wondrous event:
Dad: "Dear"
Sam: "Dear"
Dad: "Heavenly"
Sam: "Fawda"
Dad: "Thank you"
Sam: "Tinkoo"
Dad: "for"
Sam: "Fork"
Dad: "the food"
Sam: "Foo"
Dad: "Please"
Sam: "Pees"
Dad: "Bless........Bless.....Sam, don't eat yet. We're saying the prayer. Fold your arms. Ok. Bless"
Sam: "Bess"
Dad: "The food"
Sam: "Foo"
Dad: "In the name"
Sam: "Na name"
Dad: "of Jesus"
Sam: "Jesus Elmo Crise"
Dad: (Snicker snicker) "Amen"
Sam: "Amen"

In the name of Jesus Elmo Christ....Amen.

It's nice to know Elmo has a higher purpose. I always thought he was meant for bigger things.

Sounds like someone's been watching a little too much Elmo... :) I have a cousin that I think named their first boy Elmo.

It doesn't take very much Elmo to become "too much Elmo."

I LOVE this! We all had a good laugh. If Sam doesn't mind, we may use this prayer ourselves some days! hehe
