I have made a new blog friend! Everyone meet Anne Mercado, of Green Eggs & Moms. We somehow “ran into each other” (online) and have been blog-mom friends since. Anne has agreed to do me the honor and privilege of writing My Mommyology’s first guest post! Hurray!
I love hearing about anecdotes of kids and the things that they say. Anne has compiled a group of prayers that kids say as told by some moms on the Smart Parenting forum and in the blogging world. I hope you enjoy reading!
Prayers don’t have to be all serious.
Thanks to kids and their honesty even the most mundane of prayers turn into humorous stories that last a lifetime. So, are you ready for some serious laughing? Here you go!

*Smart Parenting Forums is a large and active forum in the Philippines. It’s a great resource for moms who have parenting questions. Also, thank you to all forum members and fellow bloggers who agreed to share these cute prayers their children say.
Anne Mercado is the quirky author behind Green Eggs & Moms, which offers clever tips and news to keep moms with young kids sane. When she’s not hunched over the computer working, you can find her either counting down to ten to get her kiddo to move faster, or reading a horror book. She also loves vampires and zombies.
