Young People Style: what's not to love?

Sometimes, I hate having to dress up nice for church on Sundays. 
Sometimes, I love it. 
Chas, on the other hand, always loves it. 


Side notes: 
I totally made that skirt. Yeahhh boi. 
You like that skinny tie on my skinny guy? Yeah, me too. 

I have a little story to tell you about something that happened in church this week. 

Every Sunday, we serve in the Nursery. This means that, for two hours, we're in a room taking care of kids who are 18 months to 3 years old. We play, have a 4-minute lesson, eat snacks, sing songs, cry, color, cry, and play. 
It's insane...but in a good way...mostly. 

I have a good friend named Heather who has the cutest, most precocious little girl, Nora. Nora is one of our favorite Nursery kids. 
Sunday evening, Heather had this convo with Nora: 


Heather: Nora, what did you learn about in Nursery today?

Nora: Coloring. 

Heather: Oh, nice. Who did you play with? 

Nora: (giggling) Chas. 

...brief pause...

Nora: I love him!


(Please note: this is the same little girl who also told her mom recently that her baby's name was "Nora and Chas baby.")

Even though I can't blame the girl, I'm a little confused. I'm the one who carries her around, distracts her with the doll, and reads her books when she starts crying for her parents. Me. Not Chas. Chas actually has almost no interaction with Nora. 

But, like I said, I can't blame her. I guess he just has that effect. 
Good thing I'm not scared off by a little competition. 
That's right. I'm talking to you, Nora. 

And one more thing. 

I'm giving away another print over at Across the Pond
(I know what you're thinking. Another giveaway? Jeeze louise.)

that little girl sounds adorable! But it's like the little girl in Matt's primary class he taught before we were married who kept referring to Matt and I's upcoming wedding as "our wedding" meaning HERS and Matt's. It was a little bit weird.

Hahaha kids really do say some wacky things. And you look gorgeous in all of your clothes, but I know what you mean about getting dressed up. My aunt always talks about how she hates wearing "Barbie clothes." :)

Hahaha Nora sounds like a lovely little tyke. :) And eh, I guess your husband is a charmer, even with preschoolers lol!

And I really like your skirt a lot! Kudos on making it. Is it upcycled? You and Chas always look so appropriate for church. :)

Oh Chas...he has a way with the ladies.

I'm a pre K teacher, and I breifly had a assistant named Brad (a guy named Brad, not a girl). He was there for about a month last summer. That's right... a year ago. The kids still ask about him and want to know when he's coming back. Geez.. little ones love the guys.

Andrea said...

The husband and I serve in the nursery too! And it's seriously our favorite calling. We're super bummed though because we're moving to UT (aka leaving our fav calling) We're going to have to really sweet talk our new bishop. p.s. Lovin your Sunday bests! Adorable
