Get Me Outta This Mess

The Rock Star's newest phrase is, "Get me outta this mess." I have no idea how he came up with it.

Last week, when he flipped out at swimming lessons (another story for another time) he looked at me and, with crazy lunatic eyes, screeched, "Get me outta this mess!"

If he's in time out...

"Get me outta this mess!"

If he's stuck in his car seat for a moment too long when we pull into the driveway...

"Get me outta this mess, please."

It's always used when he is powerless to control his own situation. I'm wondering if I ought to start praying this way (although, of course, with more reverence than Garrett usually musters).

Dear God,
I'm generally sick and tired of dealing with this messy legal situation. Please get me outta this mess.


  1. I LOVE that! I think I will follow your lead... and teach that prayer to Karsie too.

    Praying for you guys all the time!

  2. Hahaha I wonder where he got that?!

  3. I love it!! I totally thought about making that my new prayer, before I even got to the end of your post and saw that you thought of that, too! It's a perfect prayer, for pretty much any situation. I suppose that either "Get me outta this mess" or "Get them outta that mess" would be just about all you'd ever need to say... :) Anyway, Garrett is so adorable and I always love reading the latest Garrettism.
