Nighttime Prayers and Creepy-Crawlies

The boys have begun saying their prayers at night. They put their hands together and bow their heads as mom or dad says the prayer, then they both say, “Amen.” Too cute!

Note to self: Although it’s tradition, and you’d think, harmless, to wish them, “Good night, sleep tight, don’t let the bedbugs bite,” one should never say the “bedbug” part to Adam. We said that to him, and he worriedly looked down at his mattress saying “Bite”-“Bug”-“Bite” as he climbed out of bed, never to return.

It took about 30-minutes to reassure him that there were, in fact, no bedbugs or bugs of any kind, in his bed, and there was nothing that was going to bite him.

Which was fortunate, otherwise we were looking at having to do something like this…

    Adam is really smart! A lot of kids don’t get “don’t let the bedbugs bite”, but Adam did. He knows bugs bite.
