There's Always that One Kid and...

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?

LOL!! We are sooooo those parents - our youngest is going to give us a run for our money! T is away this weekend and me, with all 3, in church - wasn't pretty!!!! LOL

So glad to know you've found a new place to worship at and call home - may I ask where?

What a sweetie!

I think we've finally graduated from being those parents. But I was holding my breath this year, waiting to see what would happen, lol.

Yep! We're those parents, too! In last year's Christmas program, the kids had on crowns with two large stars on the front. Nathan kept his crown pulled over his eyes the whole time! When I asked him about it, he said they were his sunglasses! LOL! Gotta love 'em!

Hey Andrea, thought I would stop in on my way through Titus 2:3-5 and say hi! Both my girls are teens now and much too cool to make sure they get noticed. We now do the embarassing as uncool parents. BTW, I'm liking the blog you follow at The Nourished life. I am all for it. See you out there.
