Primary kids crack me up

(Of course, I might not be saying this in a few weeks when we have our big Mother's Day musical number. I might want to be committed after that. I'm pretty sure one of my Sunbeams will somehow end up at the pulpit demonstrating kung fu moves.)

The new gig is going decently well. I've only stepped on a child once, so that's something. All the songs and fingerplays from library story times are saving my trash because it's the only way I know to get their attention back on me once they go into rabid feral kitten mode.

It's funny to listen to them. So far nobody has told me shocking tidbits about their parents, thank heaven, but I did get this during Sharing Time (which is when all the kids are together singing & learning songs, before splitting up for their separate classes).

The song we were about to learn was about prophets, so the chorister started by asking some questions.

Chorister: How do we know what Heavenly Father wants us to do? Who tells us?

Earnest little boy in my class, with a look of "Oh! I know this one!": THE ALIENS!!!

So there you go.

And because it's Thursday and overcast and we all deserve to see something criminally cute . . .

Check out the nerd-in-training!

What a smiley baby. You've got a charmer on your hands! Just wait until he starts talking.

If we had a Mormon tabloid, we could post a pre-conference edition exposing all the general authorities as aliens. THAT would be awesome!

Also, every time my friend has to tell a story in her Primary class, she has the kids stand up and she does actions and has the kids follow her. The only way she can get through a story. Brilliant!

DHARMA INITIATIVE! Love it! I just finished watching the series. I'm despondent and don't know what to do with myself now. At least you have your little one to dress up. I'll just have to longingly stare at Sayid pictures online. *sigh*

Omigosh, look at the Dharma Initiative onesie! And the smile. He is too cute.

I love the Sunbeams, especially during the Primary program. I've never been their teacher during the program, but you just know that about the whole congregation is just waiting and watching for something good. I bet they love you--especially with all the skills you bring with you from story time!

The 6/7 year old class is where all the awkward conversations are at! So far this year, we've covered such topics as 'My mummy's baby died', 'How come my family prays 3 times a day but Jessica's family only blesses the food?', and 'My big sister has a really mean boyfriend. He hits her!'.

You should see the eyes of the kids who were previously unaware of miscarriages and domestic violence. Wiiiide as saucers!

What a doll you have. I started teaching the Sunbeams this year too. They are such a crack up!

I enjoy your blog very much and when I truly need a pick me up I go back and read the comments from your post a few years ago about Mormon Cookbooks.

Wishing you a Happy Monday!

Dharma!! I have three budding geeks at my house. We are one happy group.

In other news, word verification is "plardium" which sounds like an element you might find on an alien planet.
