Jesus wants me for a...

SUNBEAM!!! Bailey has been ready for a very long time for this critical moment in her aging process.. to graduate out of the nursery, and into Primary! Given that she's a January birthday, and will be FOUR (my word!) next week, she was more of a teacher's aid than anything else with all the "babies" as she liked to call them. ;) But let's not confuse her willing and readiness with my own... I was not even close to being "ready" for this moment! :( I dropped her off into the Primary room and watched her skip away without so much as a glance backward at her over protective adoring mother.. then I did what any normal emotionally enhanced woman would do -I BAWLED! I wish I could say it was one or even two glittering tears down my cheek, but that would be nothing short of a lie. I would like to blame it on being pregnant, but really, I am an emotion-on-my-sleeve kind of gal.. prego or not!

Once I finally gathered myself (to a degree), I started the lonely walk back to my own Sunday School class, when I heard the very distinct sound of Hunter's unhappy calls in the nursery. It was bad enough (and unusual enough) that I went in to console him. He buried himself into my shirt, shaking and sobbing "Bailey!... Bailey!..." all the while pointing to her now torturous picture on the nursery wall. I tried to help him calm down, but it only set me off yet another time and, let's just say we were a sad sight to see! :(

I keep telling myself it would be crazy for three of my kids to be in nursery at the same time, and Landon's picture will soon replace his very "big" sisters... Alas, I am VERY excited for Bailey and all the "growing up" that she's readily embracing, but MY WORD - SLOW DOWN ALREADY!!! Don't you know I'm an emotional woman?!


  1. How exciting for her and you! Shyanne was excited as well to now be in CTR 4 and get her first CTR ring. We miss you guys- Shyanne keeps asking every now and then how Bailey is doing.

  2. Bailey is soooo cute!! I can't believe she'll be four already! Time flies when you're having fun :)
