Last night, 8:12pm.
Zzzz...huh, what? Realize I'd dozed off during post-story, pre-prayer song time in the bedtime routine. Luckily Hazel is just chilling out on the bed staring into space.
"Ok, Hazel, it's time for prayer. Your turn tonight."
"Dear Heavenly Father, we thank thee for dinosaurs and windows and Little Bill my show and houses and Ginger..."
Long pause. Look up to see Hazel again staring into space.
Watch as she examines her toes, then climbs off the bed to go play with her toy castle.
Hey, it's a start.
