Not my idea of a "shopping spree"

Sunday School starts this weekend. Eeeeek! I'm still short a few volunteers, but hey...what's new? We'll git 'er dun anyway I'm sure and I'm looking forward to this year. I was shopping for supplies for kids ministry and our nursery the other day, and it struck me as funny that I had a cart full of baby stuff and no baby in sight. And as I thought about it more, it's even funnier to wonder if anybody thought I was pregnant and just stocking up on changepad covers, baby washcloths, baby wipes, nursery decorations etc. And then I found myself relieved that these things weren't for me. Don't get me wrong, I have tons of friends who are having babies right now, and I'm so happy for each and every one of them. And I love kids, I wouldn't be doing what I do if I didn't. But sitting at home in the evenings, I find myself happy that I can hand the kids back to their parents at the end of the day (especially if they're crying). One day, if the Lord chooses, I suppose I may have kids...but for the moment, I'm happy to be free of that responsibility! And you all know I'm too young to have kids anyway...

You shouldn't say things like that when a very pregnant woman like myself could read your blog! I might start to panic! Only 4 and a half weeks left . . .
