By the sound of the title you would guess that I am about to write about life at my house...but no. Actually I am fulfilling part of my New Year's Resolution...the one about finding joy in my calling. So I wanted to document something that happened last week that made me chuckle.
If you are a blog follower of mine, you know that I have been in the Primary presidency for just over a year now. Well we have an ENORMOUS...make that GINORMOUS primary, so it can be a tough job keeping all of those little ones reverent. Well last week there were two little boys that were just egging each other on, so it became necessary for me to sit in between them. The following conversation occurred
Me: Asher, you need to sit still, fold your arms and be reverent (he kept fidgeting in his seat)
Asher: I just can't sit still....I have so many funny things going on up there (he was pointing to his head) and I just have to say them!
This child is six! I of course started laughing...it was just too funny, he then continued.
Asher: Did you know that in all my seven Christmas' I have NEVER gotten a lump of coal?! I must be such a good kid!
No wonder the child sitting next to him was laughing and being noisy! He kept me laughing the whole time I sat by him...I finally had to remove myself for distracting the rest of the primary. I needed to be put on timeout.
Thank you Asher for teaching me that I am not merely a disciplinarian to these children...it is OK to laugh and enjoy them too.
