Please don't hate me, but I must confess that I am not a children lover. It's true, unless I have an emotional attachment (friend's child, relative, nanny) I can't find the natural ability to just love children.
So why do I volunteer in the Children's Ministry at church? Good question. No but seriously, I wanted to serve in my church and I knew this ministry was in need of help. I figured that I could pretend to like them- is that bad?
Well, I switched shifts with another woman in the church without realizing that she was teaching. So yesterday I find out that I would be leading the Children's Ministry today. Eek! I have absolutely no experience and I have no idea what I'm doing. Luckily, my friend who runs the ministry gave me a step by step of what to do.
But alas, the lesson plan ran short as well as the crafts that we had planned. Screaming, running around, and crying shortly ensued. It was a blur of children. The only solution was duck, duck, goose. Who knew that would keep them relatively tame?
Don't get me wrong, I will be very excited when Rion and I have kids together (in another 6-8 years), but it's kind of terrifying. Does anyone else feel this way?
