A scene between two little girls today looked like it came straight out of a comic strip. The one girl pointed to a hole in a board and said, “Look! A rabbit hole!” The other girl stuck her head into the hole in the board to look and said, “Where!”
So I don’t mind changing diapers but….
Two of the five year old boys were in the loft today by themselves for playtime (guys and girls may not be in the loft together due to previous incident.) If they come downstairs to use the bathroom, the rule is that they have to stay down after that. So these two five year olds are thinking, “we don’t want to stay downstairs, but we have to go to the bathroom.” So they take a bucket, put it on the playroom table and proceed to use it as a urinal. I would attribute this act to their age, but considering some guys I know, I’m worried if they’ll grow out of it! As punishment, they were made to wear pull-ups for the rest of the day and take their nap in the baby room (since they ‘acted like babies.’) But here is the problem (as if the rest of it wasn’t a problem!): They are five…and pull-ups are made for 2 and 3 year olds, not sturdy 5 year olds. So I spent a good 15 minutes before naptime enforcing the punishment dealt them by the other caregiver, armed with a ripped pamper, and masking tape. Needless to say, I don’t think they’ll try that again.
When Jesus saw this, he was indignant. He said to them, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these.
