Dad, Do you Pray Everyday?

AJ:  (In all seriousness) Dad, do you pray everyday?

Dad:  Yes, AJ.

AJ:  (adamantly) You should stop!

Dad:  (concerned) But I want to pray

AJ:  (Sad) If you pray you are going to get really small.


Mom:  (laughing)  AJ did you learn the song about reading the bible everyday and you will grow, grow, grow?

AJ:  (adamant again) No Mom, if you read your bible and pray everyday you will shrink, shrink, shrink!

Mom tells Dad the words of an old song
(he must have learned it in church last Sunday):

Read your Bible, pray everyday 
and you'll grow, grow, grow.

Don't read your Bible or pray everyday 
and you'll shrink, shrink, shrink,

I think AJ thought the song went:

Don't read your Bible, pray everyday
 or you'll shrink, shrink, shrink.

I just love this kid!
