Crazy

Buddha graduated from Nursery and got to come to Primary yesterday as a Sunbeam. He had come a couple of times at the end of December with the other "graduating" nursery class members. We try to help them transition smoothly since it's got to be hard to go from playing with toys during church to paying attention to lessons during church. However, he was still leery of Primary since one of the times he had attended, the music leader had the children pop balloons with numbered papers in them to choose songs to sing. He asked if he could go back to nursery he was so traumatized. I think he was worried about the balloons. Anyway, it's crazy to me that I have a child in Primary. That's just weird. Time escapes me. I used to think people who said there wasn't enough time in the day were insane. I guess that makes me insane. Insane and desperate to keep my babies from growing up too fast.

Crazy is exactly right! Jonathan started nursery too and between sharing time and class I had him take a potty break. I was taking him back to class and he said "Mom, I don't want to play with these guys." I felt so bad! But I think they'll adjust quickly ... Hopefully!

Wow! Congratulations Soren! I am sure he will adjust quickly and enjoy his new "big kids" class.
