When children turn 18 months old in our church, they get to go to nursery for the last two hours of church. As you might imagine, this is a huge relief to parents who now have two childless hours to go about their church responsibilities.
When Amos went to nursery I was a little sad. It meant he was getting so big and wasn't my baby anymore. With Maggie, however, I am thrilled! She is a cute distraction, but she is a distraction.
Maggie's first official Sunday in nursery is May 9, but she's been a couple times to test the water. Here she is testing out snack time:
she's in the middle on the left.
Amos loves "nursh-ree" and we're hoping Maggie will too.
