This morning, I substituted in the 6 & 7 year old class for Sunday School at church. Bernard & Lisa were out-of-town and asked if we could fill in. With Isaac being so young and Elijah on the way, JB and I did not feel comfortable committing to being full-time teachers. However, we did want to serve and subbing seemed a perfect way to do that. We will be working this week and next week with the 6 & 7 year olds. This week, I did it without JB as he didn't get home from work until 9am!

This morning I was attempting to tell the story of Jacob & Esau. Now I was a high school English teacher. I really do know how to teach a lesson and lead a class. Unfortunately, I think that pregnancy brain has finally gotten to me. While I did a good with the class, I did say things backwards quite a few times. Jacob was older ... I mean Esau. Jacob sold his birthright ... I mean Esau.

At the end of class one of the little girls thanked me for being their teacher and then said, "Have you ever seen Finding Nemo?" I had. "Well you remind me of Dory," she giggled.

If you have seen this movie, you are probably chuckling right now. If you haven't, let me just tell you that Dory has a memory problem that prevents her from remembering anything! She's quite the airhead throughout the movie.

Dory! Oh man!

What a cute story and leave it to a child to make the connection to a popular movie and what an adult did.

Kids come up with the best comments.

That's so cute. Also funny that you forgot Dori's name by the time you finished the story about Sunday School! :)

Also, how sweet that she thanked you for teaching her class!!

Lisa, I am trying to remember the name of the little girl who said it. She has a 19 year old brother but I can't remember her first name ... we'll see your little guy next week. Don't worry, Hubby will have babe separate. I don't stress about getting sick. :)
