My favorite part of our bedtime ritual (well, besides the part where the kids go to sleep) is bedtime prayers.
It goes like this: First, Sasha prays. Then, before Mama prays it's time for Kukla to pray. Kukla puts her hands together and prays, "Guya guya guya guh. Amen." ("Guya" being Sasha's favorite, fill-the-space noise).
If Elmo happens to be in bed, he needs to pray with both sets of paws, once with his hands and once with his feet. He's a pious monster.
Even on the toughest nights, prayers with Sasha always put a smile on my face.
