This is a long post that may make you laugh just a little
So Easter, I understand is supposed to be a GREAT Sunday where the speakers are wonderful, you really feel great at Church and then you have wonderful family time after church. That isn't QUITE how mine went. I will admit, some of this has to do with my heightened senses of pregnancy.
To continue...Adam and I get to church and have to sit in the awful metal chairs in the gym (our chapel is small and if you get there even a second late, all the pews are taken). Well the first speaker gets up and does a fine job. She talked about the "real" meaning of Easter, besides the Easter Bunny.
Then something HORRIBLE happens. One of the 5 babies sitting around us RUINED their diaper. Well, I smell it immediately and then Adam gets this look of disgust on his face, along with my friend Cassie, who is pregnant and was sitting with us as well. We all just think, ok the parents have to smell it and do something about it...but NO ONE MOVES!!! So as Cassie and I are smelling our hands to keep from being sick, we see 2 parents actually pick their children up to take a long, hard whiff of their child, but NO, not those children.
I just couldn't handle the smell anymore so I climb over Adam and Cassie to get out of our row and run for the door. I was really going to be sick. I go straight outside the building just to get some fresh air to calm my stomach down. Yes, it really smelled that bad. I then come back inside and sit in the foyer area and finish listening to the talk.
So then I go back and sit with Adam and Cassie to finish the meeting. The diaper was still at its best. I then decide to look in my bag and see if I had any lotion. I remembered some being in their a while ago. SCORE!!! I had cucumber melon lotion! So I get this out and slather it all over my hands and then give some to Cassie so we can both survive. Adam suggests that we rub it under our noses. WHAT A GREAT IDEA!!! So Cassie and I both begin rubbing it under our noses so that we really can survive.
Don't worry. We didn't do this so everyone knew what we were doing. We were very discrete about the whole thing.
So the meeting ends and then it is on to Primary.
We teach the 5 year olds and that can be SUCH A CHALLENGE!!! Adam taught the lesson and was so sad it wasn't even about Easter! But we went to sharing/singing time first and that was a disaster! Our kids wouldn't do anything we asked. THEN OFF TO CLASS!
Just to share something one kid was doing...when the primary was quiet and listening he kept "meowing" songs. YES YOU READ CORRECTLY! He would take different primary songs and instead of singing or humming the song he was MEOWING! But don't worry, Adam had to take care of him the entire time. I told him it was good training!
Talk about sugar highs! These kids had, I guess, ALL gotten and eaten their ENTIRE EASTER BASKET before they left their house that morning. We basically didn't get to even teach them anything because they wouldn't listen for even .1 seconds.
But that was our Sunday. Luckily we had a good evening. We went to dinner with some of Adam's family and my cousin. We had lots of fun and the kids even did a little Easter egg hunt after dinner. It was great being with everyone.
Doesn't that just make you tired! I was pooped by the end of the day!
