Megan has always been a bright shining ray of light in our life, but today it became official. Megan graduated from our church’s nursey and today went to Primary for the first time. I was really worried because she thrives on routine and continuity, but she did a great job. We took her to the church building earlier in the week to show her the Primary room and her new classroom. When today arrived, we walked right past the nursery room: no problem. She didn’t seem the bit phased that she wasn’t in nursery anymore. Yay!
Unknown to Megan, I stood in the back and watched her for the first ten minutes or so. Megan had a REALLY hard time sitting still. I came back after Sunday School and sure enough, she was being constrained…on the teacher’s lap. She was happy and smiling though, so at least she enjoying herself. The teacher told me later that she sang “I am a Child of God” the loudest of them all.
I was one of those moms who had a really hard time when it came time to send her to nursery. I wasn’t anxious for her to grow-up and I missed spending my entire Sunday with her. Today was also bitter-sweet…as I saw how big she looked in her little primary chair…but I am also excited for the inevitable growth and development. She has been ready to graduate from nursery for a while now, so I think this was a good change for her.
I sure love my little Sunbeam. She is such a delight.
No mother could love their child more.
