Out Of The Mouths Of Babes

I just have to share some of the things that came out of the mouths of my primary children today. No, this does not mean I like my calling. In fact, it's worse than I expected. I won't go into that now. But I had to find something good about it and this is it...

L: Heavenly Father helps us when we're lost.
A: We just use GPS.

E: Heavenly Father helps me find my make-up.

He helps me when I'm alone in my room and scared.
E: I'm alone in my room when I'm on time-out.

He helps me when I'm sick.
E: I be'd sick for 6 minutes at my house.

Sometime my dad doesn't get hungry on church days.

E: I can lick some people. It's a game licker. I can lick my sister on her stinky feet.

L: Can I tell you somethin'? (Repeated about 3 million times throughout the two hours...and whatever he wants to tell me usually has to do with Spiderman, video games, sports, anything but the topic at hand.)

All three:
Hey look at me! (always followed by a cart-wheel, summer-sault, silly face, hand stand, climbing up the wall, jumping off the chair, picking a chair up over their head, etc.)

There are six four year olds in my class, but only three where there today. They are crazy. They weren't nearly as crazy last week. Different kids bring out a whole different dynamic. I doubt they learned a thing. All I learn is how much I don't like this calling...that and how Heavenly Father can help us find our make-up.

You've gotta love the crazy things that kids say!

I love the things that kids come up with. They seem like a crazy furn group. I am so sorry you don't like your calling. I feel your pain I was in the Sunbeams for two years, hopefully you are not stuck there that long. It is rewarding but you deserve a better break from your own kids. I am sure those kids will love you though you are so much fun.

I would probably just end up in the fetal position, rocking back and forth in the corner. Good Luck.

I am so sorry you are not liking your calling!! I must say I hear some crazy things in RS just not that crazy (thank goodness)

Sounds like they learned a lot- maybe more from home, but so what! They love you, or else they would've been quieter! I am sorry, I feel for you! I helped in nursery yesterday, and it is just not the same without your sweet boys!!

Autumn said...

OH my goodness! I must be far less spiritually mature because that sounds like a blast to me. Well. It does and it doesn't. It would probably be really fun for me but I know it could drive me nuts too. Thanks for sharing. I hope we hear more from Ella, Leyton and Spiderman-or whoever that was. :)

Those were too funny!

Katie, that is seriously too funny. At least that is something good you get out of it.

I was laughing so hard that my husband came to the computer to read what was so funny. I especially like the licker... and licking his sisters stinky feet! TOO FUNNY!!!

Erin said...

I know it feels nuts in there, but I know they are learning beacause mine do and they are 2 of those crazies in their classes, and share the lessons with us. Stay strong!

That was really funny. I'm in Primary too.. it took me awhile to get used to it, I am liking it now but the ward is changing.. figures! You should see our sunbeam class, there are 11 of them. The poor teachers. :)

Anyways, good luck! Thanks for sharing, I got a good laugh!
