Mommy’s “Meekup” & A Prayer Rock…

So, you know when things get quiet and you haven’t heard from your almost two year old for a few minutes that something is up!  This morning, we were all dressed and ready to take Myla to school when I went to my bathroom to get Selah.  I walked in to find her holding my open tube of mascara and she was laughing hysterically…  She calls my makeup “meekup”.  When she saw me she started saying “Mommy’s meekup” over and over and she immediately handed over the mascara.  HA!


She “applied” a good bit to her right eye.


She had somehow gotten a ton on her eyelashes and under her eye!


I am so thankful she didn’t poke herself in the eye with the mascara wand.  It could have been bad.  But she was quite proud of herself for applying some of Mommy’s “meekup”!


“What…you don’t like me in mascara yet, Mommy?”  Little stinker!


Last Sunday Myla brought home a prayer rock from Sunday School, and I thought it was the cutest thing.  The poem that went with it is adorable.  It is a great idea if you teach SS or preschool!  They let Myla paint it, then put it in a white paper sack to send it home with the poem on the outside of the sack.

This is the poem:

I’m your little prayer rock, and this is what I’ll do.

Just put me on your pillow ‘til the day is through.

Then turn back the covers and climb into bed,

And, WHACK, your little prayer rock will hit you on the head!

Then you will remember as the day is through,

To kneel and say your prayers like you wanted to.

Then when you are finished, just dump me on the floor,

I’ll stay there through the night and give you help once more.

When you get up in the morning, CLUNK, I’ll stub your toe

So you will remember your morning prayers before you go.

Put me back on your pillow when your bed is made

Your little prayer rock will continue in your aid.

Because your Heavenly Father cares and loves you so

He wants you to remember to talk to Him, you know!
