It is no secret that God has given me a gift with my ability to work with children. I've decided to take this gift a step further and work with children at my church. I would say I'm a "Sunday school teacher," buy The Coach reminded me that one year olds can't really be "taught."
So at 4pm every Sunday it's me and 9 crazy cruisers. "Cruisers" are the group of babies that have started crawling but haven't yet walked. Once they walk they are bumped up to the "Ones." and what a whirlwind of fun that was!
Basically it's diapers, snack, and playing for these little ones. No story time, no praying, no Bible lesson, just some hardcore playing. (and stealing pacifiers and putting EVERYTHING in the mouth and a little separation anxiety and crying, of course.). I am fit to handle it though, 9 10month olds don't scare me one bit!! :)
Because we're only allowed 3 Cruisers to every adult in the room, I had two awesome ladies to work with. I love and embrace ANY opportunity to make friends within the church. I look forward to spending an hour a week with those two. :)
I'm just thrilled for this awesome opportunity to serve my church that I love so dearly! :)
