Primary Program Blues!
So today was our wards Primary program. This is Ethan's first year in primary and so I was very excited for this day. All the long hard tiring days of mothering are validated when you see your little boy stand up on the stand singing at the top of his lungs in a tune very different from the one being played by the piano and as you hear his sweet little memorized part about Faith. But unfortunately I didn't get that experience today. Ethan WOULD NOT go up on the stand and rolled up into a little ball on the pew when we tried to take his hand and walk him up there. He cried loud and I mean LOUD, " Momma I can't I can't. I will never do it not even when I am older. I don't want the blue cupcakes with blue frosting and blue sprinkles...I don't care if you get me a prize...no, no, no Momma I don't want to have a special treat. I can't..." It went on and on until I am sure half the ward heard, and I finally just let him sit it out.
Ethan is my first and so I always feel like he is my science experiment. I never know if I am doing it right, what is normal, and it usually takes me a few tries at something IE: potty training him, before I fell like I am getting it right. So I am not sure if this is normal. I mean, all the other Sunbeams ran up and you couldn't keep their little hands off the microphone. Is this normal or I am raising a future hermit. Advice would be great!
