Under a Pumpkin
Had our annual "Pumpkin Patch Party" last night at the church...I went as a "bed bug". I wore my pajamas, Spongebob slippers (of course) and then my wings and antennae (thanks for the pic, T!). The kids didn't really get it, they just thought I was a ladybug in pajamas. We have a real sweet talker at the church and he's only in grade 2. Last night he told me "you sure are a beautiful ladybug...". The best, though was a few weeks ago at kid's club. He chose to do his craft at a table full of grade 4 and 5 girls and promptly won their hearts with his one-liners and flattery. One of the leaders overheard him say, "You girls are just playing hard to get, but I don't mind...because you're just so handsome!". The girls, of course, erupted in laughter and giggles which just egged him on more. Oooooohhh boy...I'm sure he'll be a real heartbreaker in another 7 or 8 years...watch out ladies! But everything went great last night...however, I found that the parents who were participating in the games were much more competitive than the kids, had a harder time following instructions, and completely disobeyed the rules of the game in order to cheat and have their team win. They were also very poor listeners and would talk while I was talking...hmmm...I thought the kids were going to wear me out, but I think it was the parents!
