Oh my heavens. I have not been in charge of 10 children by myself since I worked in daycare. That was 6 years ago – right before hubby and I got married! I forgot how crazy it can get!
Today was youth Sunday at our church. I always hate working in the nursery second hour, because I ALWAYS miss something good – especially on Youth Sundays.
I usually run 6 kids in my class. Always the same 6 kids. Z, JJ, and Lulu, and then 3 other regular attenders. I always know just what to expect.
Well, we had lots of visitors in church today, because of youth Sunday, and I ended up with 10 in my class!!! It went well, but the service lasted 2 hours, so it felt like an eternity. The kids all did great, though, so I really can’t complain. They weren’t too hard to deal with. All of them were well behaved, so I really lucked out. I am still pooped from it, though. That was a lot of work!!
I’ve been having some funky cramping the past 2 days, and am not sure why. I’m still thinking it’s just from overdoing it yesterday. I’m going to try and take it a little easier this week and not do much at all.
BTW – isn’t my siggy fabulous? I knew how to make one, I just didn’t know how to get it to show up every time without always copying and pasting it. Thanks to Catherine, I now know!!! Thanks, Cat!
We’re not taking tomorrow off from homeschooling. Since Gene has to work, there’s really no point, plus it gives me an extra day to play with after the baby is born. I plan on taking several weeks off then. The kids are bummed, but they’ll survive. 🙂
