Oh how I wish I could be a fly on the wall!!!!


Malloy has graduated from nursery to sunbeams and it cracks me up to picture him sitting reverently through primary and a Sunday school lesson. First of all, sunbeams consist of a lot of coloring, something Malloy hates, something I have to bribe him with candy to do. Anyway, this is the second week he has gone to primary and YES his class has a spy window. This last Sunday right before Relief Society, I casually walked by and peeped in his room only to find an empty class- bummer. I realized he must still be in the primary room so of course I went to check on him. After cracking the door I can see that he and 3 other older kids were picked to go to the front of the room for some kind of activity – queue the sweat glands. The President says, “Ok kids, please draw one of Heavenly Father’s creations” . I am laughing so hard and all I can think of is later Malloy, you are on your own. I’m pretty sure Malloy hasn’t even noticed the writing utensil next to him that he is supposed to be drawing with and the word creation hasn’t even been uttered in his life up to that point. Ok William goes first. What do you know a camel and – bonus- a picture of Jesus, very impressive. Audrey is second, she draws a cow and some flowers, Malloy’s turn. Oh he is still on the ground with his paper. The President says,” Malloy do you want to stand up and show us what you drew?” He stands up, shows her the paper and says, “an M” . The President says “Oh an M for Malloy.” I was heavily breathing / giggling and almost slobbering because I was smiling so big. The letter M had nothing to do with the assignment, I was just happy it wasn't a blank piece of paper. At that very moment an older man that I do not know walked by and said, “easy snoopy!” Oh I wish I could spy every week, it was so entertaining. I really hope this nosy feeling subsides because when I think about his first dance as a deacon, trench coats and wigs come to mind.

Love the story! I wish I could be in Andrew's class too. Who knows what they say at that age. Last week Andrew said they talked about Heavenly Father and Lucifer...the cat from Cinderella.

That's so funny. I almost died when I read the "breathing heavy" part. For some reason I can picture you doing that trying not to laugh!
Oh and thanks for the anonymous postings, I feel like I have a stalker!

I just showed mom your adorable post and hilarious story. She said that Malloy was the smartest one because he wrote "M" for Malloy and God created him. She said that he is brilliant!! We love you
