Another week has come and gone, another chunk of summer GONE…I can’t believe how quickly the time is flying.
Weddings, birthdays, VBS, crazy children and nerds…these are the things we’ve survived this past week.
The kids were in a play at church Sunday morning. Take a look at this pair…
I don’t know if you can tell, but the one on the left played the part of a NERD. And land sakes, he did it well. He had a ton and one lines. Click “Faulty Reasoning” below to see a little video sampling of him saying my favorite line…
The sweetie on the right also had a fun part and led the songs…we were very proud; very proud, indeed.
And then there’s that little dose of reality that just makes life so…
The Nerd had serious long lines, but I’m repeating myself. And he did it flawlessly, truly he spoke those lines with nerdlike excellence. It was so cute. HOWEVER…he seemed to have a problem in the lower regions. As in, a bundle, wedgie, whatever you might want to call it. The problem was, it was not only in the back, but also in the front.
And things escalated to an all-time nerve-inducing high when he began moving from one foot to the other, doing a little shuffle.
At first, I just thought he was nervous and that we needed to get new underwear. And new pants. Or maybe he got a mosquito bite. Or please not a rash or something.
Then when the dance came and the end of the play did not seem to be in sight, I began to beseech the heavens to help him hold it. But please, Lord, not literally. Don’t let him hold it literally ANYMORE.
God heard my cry and just when I thought I couldn’t take anymore, it was time for a song.
Estelle (or as Indigo calls her, Mistelle), who was in charge of VBS, bless her, took my boy by the hand while the song was going and let the poor boy go to the bathroom. He came back a new man by the time the song was over.
You just never know what miracles you’re going to see during any given day.
Force your child to use the restroom before a performance.
Pray the song comes sooner next time.
