Manic Mom's Mental Myriads

Stop by and have a laugh from Manic Mom's Mental Myriads on Motherhood, and some other stuff too, but mostly motherhood, wifehood, thoughts on writing, etc. No politics will be discussed here or geography, and I will not be solving any mathematical equations. Just some BS on whatever I feel like blogging on...

Tukey Talk

This morning, Tukey told me his favorite prayer he made up.

He doesn't just tell me it; he squinches up his eyes really, really tight like that'll make the prayer go up faster to God, clamps his fists up and really, really concentrates:

Dear God (long pause),

The aminals are glad that you made them. ('nother pause),

And we're glad that you made us too!

(Emphatically) AMEN!

Yep, Amen all right!

Hope you all have a beautiful fall day and weekend! This soccer mom (hate that term - hell, I hate soccer! Oops, is it wrong that this post has a prayer in it, and then H-E-double-hockey-sticks too?) Anyway, this 'soccer mom' (who has been virtually alcohol-free since 'that' night) has a game to attend for Ajers.

I love his prayer, down to the "aminals" part. With so few words, you convey a scene precisely. Hey, and while we're talking about kids, I was kind of hoping for your response on my entry about the plight of the movie-goers. It has to do with kids, and I trust your judgement. It's currently the second one down, though I'll be adding another post today. (I've been posting about once a day.) Have fun at soccer! Good luck to Tukey in his game, though it's probably too late for that by now, so it'll have to apply for next time.

Haven't left for the game, and it's Ajer's game. Tukey starte pee wee soccer in a couple weeks! I will for sure check out your movie-goer post--I'm guessing it's about kids in the theater--I'll read it later today! xo

Sorry about that, Stephanie! I saw the Tukey Talk in the subject, and somehow it got into my head that it was his game. Well, I hope Ajers has a good game. It must be adorable to watch all those little kids play soccer--especially the pee wee ones. Do the parents get all uptight? That sounds like a blog entry or book scene in itself!

Steph, Alani and I discussed this over breakfast, and we decided that you should embrace your inner soccer mom. Admit it, you already have the mini van, and you're next in line to bake cookies for the team. All you need is daily doses of Oprah and Martha Stewart...

Cute! And I'm with you on the soccer mom thing. My sister-in-law has TOTALLY embraced the title. I on the other hand will be running as far away as possible when the time comes! (Perhaps my loud metal music and various tattoos will scare the others off?)

Thank God The Princess has about as much athletic ability as ... well, me! Meatloaf, on the other hand is going to send me over the edge!

By the way, on page 117! Love it!

Short and to the point, that is how all prayers should be. My 5 yr olds opinion is... "God is a busy guy Momma, if we keep it short he'll hear us first."

I gotta say, I was out there on the filed, yelling GO BLUE! And WAY TO GO GUYS and whatever else I could think of. Finally, Hub turned to me and said, "Tone it down, it's second-grade soccer."

They lost, and I felt very relieved when Ajers got to be goalie for a while because he was running around like crazy and that gave him time to rest!

Very very sweet!
