more to the story...

first off THANK YOU for all the sympathy and suggestions in response to my last post!
you will be happy to know that operation fantastic sacrament meeting wonder bag is currently under way

you might also be interested to know that while darek was hosting a young men's activity at our house tonight i was chatting with one of the other leaders. we'll call him "super hero" for the purposes of this post. well super hero was in primary last sunday because his daughter was also a new sunbeam. he was witness to the one woman circus act gone awry. (aka amberli pretending to be primary chorister while her son wreaked havoc) anyway, super hero informed me that after i left primary to go sing in nursery atticus apparently bolted out the door after me. luckily super hero noticed and followed him out knowing that i probably wasn't there to corral him back in, bless his heart. super hero called out to atticus, who sweetly turned to look back at him, without skipping a single step in his mad escape in the opposite direction. aha! now he was being chased, his most favorite of all favorite games. super hero did indeed have to chase atticus down the hall. but the story does not end there folks. nor does it end at the very other end of the church where super hero chased atticus...neither does it end in the chapel of the other ward's sacrament meeting into which atticus ran... nope. the story in fact, ends ON THE STAND of the of the chapel of the sacrament meeting of the other ward. yeah. my son. on the stand. during the other ward's sacrament meeting. and me, totally oblivious, singing my little tooties off in nursery. THANK GOODNESS super hero was looking out for me! can you imaging me coming back to primary, no atticus? searching the halls, no atticus? all the while the other ward is thinking, "whose kid is that? get him off the stand!" i cringe to picture atticus pounding away on the piano, running away from who ever tries to stop him, trying to get at the microphone...

can we all just cringe for a moment of very embarrassed silence, please?
