udders and tantrums


 






"is this where the poop comes out?" the question leaves the four year old's mouth. we can't stop laughing. it's the toy cow's udders and we explain to him it's actually where the milk comes out. this kid is too cute and we have a class full of them. toby is my little buddy and i hold him this class time. he loves to be held and he likes to snuggle. one kid is new and he has temper tantrums. he pouts whenever he can't have his way... no, throws a fit. flailing himself about on the floor, i get down there with him and begin playfully crying too. he soon quiets as he watches me in amusement. i switch to snoring and try to keep myself from giggling as he stares at me with red face. a little girl stuffs her mouth with cherrios. she trys to fit just one more, we are reminded of Po on Kung Fu Panda 2 and burst out laughing. we sing Bible songs with all. their little hands pat the Bible, eyes attentive. as we play with them, sing of going to Bible class and Who made our eyes, i ponder how it's never too early to teach. the seed of His Word is planted and i can't wait to see what it will grow in their lives to become.
