Here's my advice . . . just don't tell the little kids that you will break both of their legs if they don't sit down and be quiet. Even if you say it in a sarcastic witty voice, the humor will be lost on them. (My dad learned this the hard way when he was called to be an assistant 3 year old Sunday school teacher.)
Bless your heart. You can do it! I'd give it 6 months though and then I'd be begging to get outta there.
ha ha ha!!! When my husband and I were first called into nursery, everyone kept joking what wonderful birth control it was. I would agree with them, until we found out we were pregnant. Oops. ;)
hey, the sooner you get pregnant and have a baby, the sooner you get outta there and into a nice warm relief society greeter calling...
Somehow I still don't have a calling at our new ward, so I'm going to avoid writing any of the numerous things that came to my head.
ah it cant be that bad! Arent you just coordinating who will be in there and the parents are still going to rotate? I take it that is Parker wit the #1 finger! HE is the CUTEST after all...
That is so funny! Colby and I got called to that calling and I was JUST pregnant, nobody knew. I was like, "is this a joke? How'd you know?" Anyways, they never really released me when I had a kid, but I really liked that calling (don't tell). You don't have to change diapers. The only bad part is snotty noses but all you do is play at church. Way better than RS. Way better than teaching 5year olds (don't tell)... That's so funny. You're gonna have a baby...! lol, that's just the way it always happens...kirsten
I don't normally comment, but today I have to! Hilarious! I had four kids in four years- including twins- and love kids and nursery was always my dream calling. Now that I substitute there often, I disagree. My current callings are the best: organist and pianist and Activity Days. I get to blast out the hymns on these huge pipes, play the piano before Relief Society and avoid any necessary chit chat that goes on beforehand and every other Tuesday night I don't have to put the kids to bed and get to go to Church and play games and eat brownies. Whom the Lord calls, He qualifies! (Had to add that in there too!)
Hahaha! Me and Dave totally can sympathize. That same experience at church caused us to wait an extra year before having Clara but it will create memories you will never forget! :)
Primary was hard for me. I was much happier doing Ward Activities. Love my kids but other peoples make my nerves raw.
ha HA! I also got the same calling. Kinda cruel, seeing as that my kid just got old enough that I thought I'd have a child-free 2 hours. There's really good advice at the front of the nursery manual. good luck.
I have three kids...but can't do the nursery! Too much!
Hey now!! Nothing is wrong with the nursery :) It is a great calling. Make it fun, have some structure, actually teach a lesson, and you will be surprised how fun it will be. I learned begrudgingly from experience :) Good Luck!!
I can't seem to escape nursery... I was released and a year later they called me back in. I mean, C'mon!!! I have 3 kids of my own! Church is supposed to be my break, right? Oh, well. At least I get to eat snacks the whole time. (Unless, of course, it's fast Sunday...then it just adds to the torture.)
that must be a bishop's rule. me and my hubs were put in nursery as NEWLYWEDS. :/8 years later we have 4 kids!
LoL oh dear... I'm glad I don't have that calling. I don't understand why they usually put newly married people in teaching little kids or nursery and then expect you to still want kids
I'm the nursery leader and I love it!!! I think kids are the greatest!!!! Good luck!
