For Mothers' Day, my Primary counselors and I compiled some things from Primary this last year, below. I hope you enjoy them!
Overheard in our Primary:
v In the opening prayer on February 3: “and please bless the Superbowl.”
v “Choose the person with the blue shirt and the purple & black tie!” (said the boy with the blue shirt and the purple & black tie).
v Family rules they’ve volunteered: “No jumping on the bed” (then four others exclaimed, “Hey, that’s a rule at my house, too!”), “Laugh a lot”, “No dropping food on the floor for the dog”, “Don’t run through the house and scare the cat.”, “No wasting time”.
v “I know my mom and dad love me ‘cause they play Monopoly with me even though they hate it”
v “Why are you so old?” (When Crystal told the children she might not always remember their names because she’s old.)
v On a counselor's first Sunday in the presidency, one boy offered, “Smell my feet. No, really, smell my feet!”
v During a lesson on praying: “Yeah, you can send smoke signals too because they go up to heaven.”
v “But I don’t want to be a cow!” (assigning roles for the Nativity)
v Right after saying the prayer in Opening Exercises: “That was fun! Can I do it again?”

The children have been writing down ways that they know Heavenly Father loves them and watches over them- come see our bulletin board! It’s covered with these paper hearts. Here’s what some of them say:
v He helped me…
…be thankful for my presents…
…feel better when I crashed
…be OK with having to pick up dog poop
…find my special pen
… be kind at my birthday party
… pray and be good so I won’t get mad
v He comforted me when I was locked out of the house this weekend
v He answers my prayers- my aunt was safe in surgery
v We can be resurrected too
v He created me
v I’ll get to see my fish again
v Jesus will come back
v He watches over my cousin on a mission
v I can live with Heavenly Father again
v He gave me my baby sister
v My hermit crabs
v He helped my mom when she lost her finger
v Having... …a sun …my teacher …my family …missionaries …my pets …life …Jesus
Happy Mothers’ Day!
