The bishop was inspired!

The bishop was inspired when he called me to be the cub scout leader in our ward. At the time I was the mother of two beautiful little girls (who by the way, never got into things - just a little whiny at times). But the bishop was inspired to call me to be the leader of several 8, 9, and 10 year-old boys to prepare me for what was coming. I spend one afternoon a week with rowdy, loud, and sometimes downright obnoxious boys who try my patience. I grew up with brothers, but that still doesn't prepare you for the energy a group of boys displays during the weekly ritual of flag ceremony, prayer, games, art projects, etc. that we call Den Meeting.

Two months after being called as the cub scout leader, I found out I was pregnant. Nine months later my little ball of energy was born. We call him Jack. I have now been a cub scout leader for 2 1/2 years and have learned to love the fun time I have with the cub scouts. I also have learned that EVERYTHING must be out of reach of a two-year old little boy's curiosity. I will tell you about today's adventure....................

I was working on the computer and Jack was watching Curious George in the other room. I didn't notice the tube of super glue on the bottom shelf of the entertainment center. I'm not sure how it got there with his toys. I was alerted to a problem when I heard him make distressed noises from the other room. I went in to see what the problem was, when I saw the tube of super glue in his lap. He was rubbing his mouth, obviously distressed at what he had just bitten. He had super glue all over his teeth, lips and hands. Luckily he was spitting and trying to get it out of his mouth, otherwise I would have worried that he had swallowed some of it. Suprisingly, super glue DOESN'T stick to wet things. We peeled super glue off tongue, teeth, lips and fingers.

So, I just want to say, "Thank you!" to Bishop Love for his inspiration.

You should have named him 'Dennis'. It sounds like you have one very busy boy -- especially after reading this blog and the one dated Jan 1st.
