It was our evening reading and prayer time. One of the girls kept raising her hand to share a prayer request. Finally, it was time and she gushed her story. “One time we were at McDonalds, and we went to the bathroom. There was a girl in there, and she didn’t even shut the bathroom door! She just went in there to go potty with the door open!” She began repeating herself since her story was not having the desired affect on us. Surely we weren’t understanding the gravity of the issue.
A little put out that he had been repeatedly interrupted for this story Jason finally cut her off and asked, “So what’s your prayer request?”
She became very serious and said, “That when she grows up her mommy will teach her to shut the door when she goes on the potty!”
And that’s when I lost it. Utterly and completely gone was I. Try though I might, I could not totally compose myself, and my husband had to pray through my peels of laughter. And that was my laugh of the day…well it was one of them at least!

I’m guessing that your fit of hysteria was caused, at least in part, by a general lack of sleep. As the mother of 5, it must be inevitable!
Gotta love the perspective of a child!!
Sounds like your daughter will be a fabulous mother someday…and all of her kids will definitely know to close the door when using the bathroom ; )
Bad enough to get hyserical in family devogtions. I know how it feels. Worse in church.

Kids – just so funny the things they think of. Also so, so sweet.
