'My' little children

Once a month, I help out with the Sunday School at my church. I get to allow the paedophile in me to work supervise the children in the age group of 3-5 years old, and get to listen to the (sometimes) rather advanced English being used. I mean, a 5 year old being able to recognize the word 'gigglepuss'? Do half of you even know what the heck that is?

At any rate, yes, I also help to distribute the goodies and nick some for myself. I also get to clean up their mess after arts and craft too. Yay! At any rate, it is an immensely rewarding experience; it gives you an opportunity to remember the good old days when you were right and everybody else was wrong, amongst other things. And not to mention testing one's patience (Although to be honest, the kids that I help out with are quite well behaved! Maybe its because its church so they behave extra special)!

It is such a shame when I talk with some of my other guy friends:

'Kids? Nahhhhh... not for me!'
'You're asking me to help out with little kids? Errrr.. I'm no good with kids!' (For the record, I'm not very good with them either.)

Please take note: One day you will most probably be a father. It doesn't hurt to get some experience with little kids before you go through it yourself. Same for you, young women!

Introducing Iona, my favourite amongst the bunch that I work with. She just turned five today, bless:

She has an ever more charming laugh, I need to grab a picture of her doing that!

Here's little Samuel, whose father Matthew I had mentioned briefly before. He is expecting his younger sibling in a couple of days. He's very mischievious and manja.

Such rosy cheeks!

And here's Malachi, aka Mr Gigglepuss (see beginning of post)

There are a few more of course. But these three are my favourites :P I bet they will grow up to be lookers ;)
