Standing Mice????

So, I should tell you before I begin that I usually sing my kids a few Primary songs as the last step in our little bedtime routine. One of my favorite songs to sing them is "If the Savior Stood Beside Me." It's a beautiful song and is also one of the Primary Program songs for 2008 so it also has practical applications. I should also tell you that while we are driving McKinley usually asks to listen to either Primary Songs, Disney Songs, or songs from the musical Hairspray.

A few days ago we were driving and listening to Scripture Power (a favorite in our car) and then I asked McKin what she wanted next and she said "How about the mice song?" I was REALLY confused by this, I asked if she wanted the song from Cinderella and she said "NO, you know with standing mice watching over me." Now, I was really lost. A few very frustrating minutes then ensued with McKinley nearly in tears and trying so hard to explain by saying over and over "standing mice watching over me." I just kept telling her that I was sorry but I had no idea what she meant, and was frantically scrolling through the ipod to see if I could get any clues. I then came upon "If the Savior Stood Beside Me" and it hit me. The last line of this song says "if I could see the Savior standing NIGH watching over me." This whole time she thought it was about mice watching over her. What a funny little girl!

Okay that one made me laugh so hard I cried. How did the poor little thing sleep at night thinking that a bunch of little mice were watching over her! I am terrified of mice and the thought that they might be watching over me is even more terrifying. Love the song though.
