WE are those parents.
You know the ones...
with the kid who just can not stand still and do his cute little part in the church Christmas play.
with the kid who refuses to keep his shoes & socks on in the dead of winter.
with the kid who hasn't a clue what this white headband with sheep ears is and why it must be on his head.
I'm sure every parent get their turn but this year we were the ones...
with the kid who has his hands down the back of his pants and decided that it was funny to let them fall and moon everyone as he walked to his seat (wish I'd gotten THAT on video!).
with the kid who loves to look around him and take it all in as he is supposed to be singing some song about a 'deliberrrr' (Deliverer).

But I am so thankful that his older brother (a wise king in the back) enjoyed his part and that his older sister (a "sheep" behind his left shoulder) is happy to try to guide him and help him with his headband/ears. This is the first year they have all been old enough to join in this part of the Christmas celebration and we were blessed to have found a new church family in time that they could be part of the play! I was so proud to be the parent of that one kid!
But maybe next year YOU will be those parents instead of us....or maybe it will be Lincoln's turn to shine?
