Forgive our Tress Pantses

Jellybean had made it her life's month's mission to have The Lord's Prayer put to memory. Each morning in the car and on the way to school she would begin to recite it; however, she could NEVER remember how it started. For some reason the words "Our Father" completely eluded her.

On Monday that all changed for her; she began to say The Lord's Prayer and didn't need to ask "Um, how does it start again?". And it went something like this:

Our Father who AREN'T in Heaven
HOLLOWED be thy, your name.
Thy Kingdom come
Thy will be done
On Earth
As it is in Heaven
Give us this day
And our daily bread
And forgive us our TRESS PANTSES.
As we forgive those who TRESS PANTS against us.
Lead us not into temptation
And deliver us from evil.
For your's is the Kindgom
The power and the glory.

I think it is a very good thing she was in the backseat and I was in the front seat and it was dark and I had no voice; you know, so she couldn't see or hear me lose my mind trying not to laugh over our TRESS PANTSES...

So, we decided to help her out a little; we corrected the "aren't in Heaven" part by telling her it was perfectly all right for her to say "who is in Heaven". The TRESS PANTSES thing, we decided to put in terms that she could understand a bit better. That being said, Jellybean now says "Forgive us our sins as we forgive those who sin against us". Oh and before I forget, it is also "Holy is thy name" instead of "HOLLOWED be thy name". Se seems to have things completely under control now.

We're all good.
