Getting Ready for the Storm

On Friday, the weather forecasters had promised thunderstorms through the night. When the sky started flashing, Sun Kissed Boy #1 began getting ready. Since we live in a place where hurricanes are a yearly threat, he knows that if we ever need to hunker down, we need to take shelter in a window-less room. In our house, that room is the boys' bathroom. He gathered up things to be safe AND comfortable. Cooper, blankies and lovies went in first.  

Once he had the brothers in the bathtub, he explained the "seriousness" of the situation. He told them that there would be lighting, loud thunder, and the electricity could go out.

After he had laid it all out, he was free to relax and wait.

Everyone was relaxing and waiting for the storm to pass. 

However, he must have worried Sun Kissed Boy #2 because he suggested they pray. Sun Kissed Boy #1 was in charge of the prayer and some of it went like this: "Please, dear Lord, give us a bigger bathtub so the entire family can fit. Oh, and Lord, please, make my mom stop shooting pictures so we can get to the business of surviving".

About 15 minutes later, they realized that it was just a rain storm and the electricity was still on... so they left the bathtub and watched a movie instead!

The cutest blog ever. Sun Kissed Boy #1 is so grown, and I love how boy #2 and boy #3 look up to him for direction and guidance. The prayer priceless! So happy there was nothing more than a rain storm to worry about, and the boys could spend the rest of the night relaxing. Happy Monday to you and yours.

I can't tell you just how much I enjoyed this post. I know that this is terrible, but I'd have turned the water on.

Yeah, I'm an awful person.

Them saying a prayer for a bigger bathtub is absolutely priceless.
