BC & I have "Nursery Duty" at church this month. We usually are Greeters during the remainder of the year, but during the summer they give the "Regulars" time off and we fill in. We are working with the 6-12 months old. QUITE the difference in a 6 month old and a 12 month old. We have some that are kind of sitting up--sometimes falling over and those that are crawling, scooting, and toddling. It is border-line crazy!
MY DEEPEST ADMIRATION to all you Mom's with little one's close together. Spoke with friend, Tracy tonight who has just had a baby and has one that is 13 months old. She told me it was crazy just getting ready for bath time--much less actually giving baths! After 2 hours in the nursery this AM, I was reminded why you have them when you are young!
One of the interesting things that I noted the FIRST week of nursery duty, last week-----the little girls are very LOW MAINTENANCE. Put them in a seat or one of those round baby holder things--they are perfectly happy. NOW THE BOYS ARE A DIFFERENT STORY---HOLD ME!!! HIGH MAINTENANCE----PERHAPS IT IS GENETIC!
