Bedtime Prayers

Last night I was tucking Joseph into bed.  We said his prayers and our ritual "good night, sleep tight, don't let the bedbugs bite. . . . etc."  I was getting ready to turn off his light when he called me back and said, "mama will you help me pray to Jesus and that I won't have any bad dreams with doggies or monsters or calculators that scare me and eat me?"

pause . . . .

me: "do you think that a calculator could eat you?"

Joseph: "well, it could!"

me:  "yes baby.  I will help you pray."
