The other day Kayli informed me that there was a scary monster downstairs. She wasn’t too scared about it-just wanted to tell me. Since then Boo-ah (she named him) is around every day. She tells us all about him. He is pink, sleeps in her bed, is nice, hides things from us, and sometimes chases us around the house. We will be minding our own business when all of a sudden Kayli will inform me that Boo-ah is chasing her or that he is sitting by us. It’s fun to ask her about Boo-ah and she has an answer for everything.
The other day Kayli lost her bop (that’s what she has always called a pacifier-and yes, she still uses one at night). Anyway, we decided that this would be a good time to teach her about prayer. So we helped her pray to Heavenly Father to help us find the bop. She was so excited and she KNEW after we said the prayer that we would be able to find it. We searched for a long time…Kenny and I were saying our own prayers-please let us find that bop so we can teach her the power of prayer and faith! We eventually found one and helped her say a prayer to thank Heavenly Father. It was such a simple, but powerful teaching experience that I don’t want to ever forget so I’ve written here. I guess you never know when great teaching experiences can happen!
Kayli likes to say “c’mon kids!” when she is talking to me and Kenny…
Kayli tells me all the time that she loves her daddy. Last night he was holding her and she started singing, “I love my daddy” a song she made up on the spot apparently.
