Sometimes church doesn't go very well. This was one of those Sundays. Primary is usually chaotic, but it was extra chaotic today. I guess sometimes I feel especially inept in my calling, and I feel like it showed a lot today, and that bothers me. I know it's probably mostly in my head, but I still left church just feeling down. I hope this day gets better.

Also, in the midst of my running around as usual, someone from nursery came and handed a soaking wet Jenna to me. Of course I don't have a change of clothes for her!! And of course, the mother's lounge is all the way across the building from where both Primary and Nursery are located....who planned that? The nursery room should totally be where the Relief Society room is, not to mention that there should be a changing table in a men's restroom in every single church building. I'm super-busy every Sunday, Braden doesn't have a Sunday calling, and yet they bring Jenna to me if she needs to be changed, because there is nowhere for Braden to change her. The poopiness of it all!!! Literally!!

So I changed Jenna's diaper and then put her clothes right back on her...what else could I do? That's totally gross, and I felt horrible doing it, but I didn't have a change of clothes for her because this is the first time I've changed her at church in months. She either hasn't needed it, or maybe they haven't noticed that she has; I'm not sure. The thing is, the diaper she was wearing was wet, but certainly not in proportion to how wet her clothes were. It was really odd. I'm becoming increasingly disillusioned with Pampers, let me tell you.

Anyway, here's hoping for some nicer weather this week. Maybe the combination of bad weather and the fact that it's TOTALLY supposed to be spring (hello,'s APRIL) is getting me down. Let's see some sun!!! :)

It was probably all the Easter candy the kids consumed this weekend! Our sunbeams were bouncing off the walls.

I'm in the Primary presidency too and I seem to usually feel pretty inept as well. My Mom tells me to look past the adults and just see the kids, because I always feel self-conscious about how I must sound to the adults.

You should tell the Nursery people to give your kids to Braden when they need diaper changes ;) And I agree 100% ALL men's restrooms EVERYWHERE should have changing tables ESPECIALLY in the church!

Hi Megan,

Thank you so much for your comment. I feel the same way!! I know I need to not think about the adults, but sometimes it's so hard when I feel like I'm looking particularly dumb. :)

And you're right about the candy; we could hear one class of Sunbeams all the way down the hall!

Kerry, I think you should blame the crazy girl who makes those crappy agendas. Seriously...

I'm going to go ahead and quote George here: "It's not you; it's me!!" You do a great job, Rachel.
