"MY" Day

Did you know that Wednesday is my day to sit up front and say the prayer?

There are 7 people in my natal Bradley family.  We were each assigned a day to say the prayer at dinner.  And to eliminate the fighting over which girl got to sit up front- the day you prayed was also the day you sat up front.

I've always liked Wednesdays for that reason.  It's "My Day."

When my two older sisters moved out of the house, it would be dinner time on a Monday and Dad would ask, "Whose day is it?"  We'd respond, "Krissy."

That would make him so frustrated.  "Well, Krissy's not here!  So somebody else say it!" 
Nice and reverent for prayer time.

Even now, when Ken and I are sitting down to eat, and he asks "Whose day is it?" (meaning his or mine) I always think of which Bradley's day it is first.  It's still so automatic.

Sunday:  Dad
Monday:  Krissy
Tuesday: Andi
Wednesday:  Patty
Thursday:  Vicky
Friday:  Julie
Saturday:  Mom

From Left to Right:  Andi-Candy-Girl, Jules a Bug Stinkweeder, Patsmo (on bottom),

Ah, the nineties. A great time for hair and styles. :) I always look at pics of my fam during that time and cringe a little bit. Your family is so cute, having a day for each person to pray. Good idea.

Neat tradition.

No one fights over grace, whomever wants [or wanted to] say it can. Sometimes we had 3 or 4 a night. :D

As for sitting up front - it was always the oldest, then when the boys became really tall it was whomever had the longer legs.

Now we only have one at home. That's a breeze. heehee

I love the dresses in the pic'. I wish I could get my girls to dress up more often.
