three years old

Monday, January 16

Boots:Vince Camuto, Skirt: Banana Republic, Top: c/o Frock Candy, Belt: JCrew, Necklace: c/o Winsdor, Lipstick: Maybelline Fuchsia Fever
Tys and I have the opportunity to teach the three-year-old's in church on Sunday. And yesterday was our first real go at it. "Oh what a breeze it will be! No sweat." said we. And that's when the three-year-old's laughed.

Here's what we learned:
- 4 three-year-olds feels like 40 three-year-olds.
- When one announces that they have to go to the bathroom, suddenly everyone has to go.
- Why walk down the hall with your arms folded, when you can RUN!? And even better, HIDE!
- The 15 minute activity planned to draw pictures of our bodies in actuality, lasts about 5 seconds.
- Three-year-olds still need all of your attention, even when your two-month-old rears back and cracks his head on the wall.
- 1 round of the ABC's is not enough; 6 rounds of the ABC's is not enough
- Three-year-olds say the most adorable things.
- They like sitting on your lap.
- And can produce the most expert drawings of spiky hair.

My daughter is 3 so this made me chuckle. She keeps me going ALL day and I mean every second. :)

brandonandlindslitzner said...

i can only imagine. especially when my sweet (albiet sometimes crazy-ha) 15 month old acts like wild woman. at least my stomach muscles will get a good workout from laughing, right?

you can read all about our family's adventures, our personal style and quite a bit of randomness on my blog ::

Too funny and too true. My first job was watching 40ish three year olds...

Suzie said...

I loooove your skirt, this blue is awesome!

So very true! 4 three year olds also feel like 40 thirty year olds.

Sounds a lot like my 14 year old Sunday school class but instead of abcs they do 6 rounds of "who the cutest boy in the stake is" Haha this made me giggle.

Too cute! And I love your ensemble. The pink lip color is the perfect addition to the fabulous outfit! :)

Ginger Tea said...

I love the THREE's age!!! I'm a preschool teacher and it's the best! It's the age where you can still make a fool out of yourself and have them believe everything you say... Not like 4's or 5's when they're all smart alecs! Hahaha! It's the best age to teach!!

Janine said...

I wish you were teaching my three year old daughter. She just cries silently in her chair each week because she doesn't have a consistent teacher. Just breaks my heart. And you're right about the 5 second activity...I have to plan 5 activities to last 15 minutes.

simply brookes: said...

so true so true. see what you have to look forward to.
love your outlook.

Rae Veda said...

Hahaha. I can't wait until little Ever is three! It seems so far away. Have a great week! xo, rv

Katie said...

ha! my husband and i teach the three year olds, too! and they are NUTS! church is suddenly exhausting. but it really is fun. we have 7 in our class and it's so true, they ALL have to go to the bathroom as soon as one kid says it.

Ashley said...

Ha! It's funny you mention this, because we were teaching the elementary kids in church yesterday and it was also "quite the experience". They're so funny!

Love the blouse and the color of your skirt dear =)

I taught sunbeams (3-4 years olds) for three years and it was so much fun, but a lot of work!! They do say the funniest things, I have some cute stories from that and from working in nursery! My first group of sunbeams are now 12/13 years old, they are so grown up that I feel old- and I am only 28- hahaha!! Enjoy every minute with them it's a blast!

Jocee said...

all of this is true. i remember one day i was a helper in a sunday school class for the littlins, and we had beanbags for chairs and everyone wanted to sit in a beanbag. they all wanted their own, but we didn't have enough, so we rotated activities. coloring {which truly only lasts for 5 seconds}, watch a movie + snack, sit in the beanbag. and the funny thing was, it actually worked.
this really made me laugh. love your outfit! :))

Kids are so amazing. Mine never fail to make a crappy day turn around. they come up with the most silly things.

looking great by the way! Really love the bright color and polka dots.

brooke field said...

That is husband's and my calling too. It is more than challenging!

Jacqlyn said...

I am never around small kids, so when I am, I just freeze! I don't know what to do! Hopefully this is a work in progress kinda thing (: cute outfit!

Andrea said...

We taught the 3 years olds too. I had a love hate relationship with it, because they were so cute and funny sometimes, and sometimes they were terrible! Once we showed a picture of a spider and asked what it was and one girl cried, "arachnid!" I still remember that. Good luck!!

It's A Love Story said...

so true! Cute outfit!

Char said...

Welcome to the club! I am a first grade teacher and def know how you feel. I have encountered many of these same points for three years now! haha! Fun but tiring, huh!?
Good luck with it and have fun, they will love you!

I teach ballet, and the 3 and 4 year olds are by far the craziest but also the most adorable.

Sarah said...

How funny, kids love the ABC'S. Your polka dot top is amazing on you. Looking beautiful as always.

Maria said...

Us mother's of the 3 year olds (and all other primary ages) appreciate you teachers so much!!! I have a 5, 3, & 2 yr old and after a sacrament meeting that felt like an Olympic event I am SOOOO grateful for the teachers who I hand my little ones off to. They always come out of class happy and telling me everything they've learned. So I can sit quietly and still in my own class and have a few hours of learning the gospel. SO THANK YOU!! Your calling is not easy!

Krysten @ Why Girls Are Weird said...

Haha sounds like quite an experience.

Too cute! At least you know what's in store now!! :)

I used to work with the 2 year olds in the church nursery. I learned that a young 2 year old is the oldest a child can be and still believe when you say "no" that you still have any control over them what so ever. I can't imagine working with the 3 year olds!

I also learned that when you have to wear latex gloves when you change diapers, never volunteer with the girl who is allergic to latex. All those poopy diapers... mine...

Hilliary@ Happily Ever Healthy said...

This just made me laugh! Sounds like a fun yet exhausting time!

Kate said...

Oh no!

My very first babysitting job was for two three year olds and an 18 month old. Pssh, I got this, I said to my 14 year old self.

I did not. And lets just say that there was vomit involved. Ew. Glad you made it through!

Emily said...

We just got called to do the same thing a couple months ago. It has REALLY been a learning experience! I can't imagine doing it with a baby! We have 9 kids in the class and it feels like 50 some days. :) The key for us has been treats (i try to keep it somewhat healthy) and lots and I do mean LOTS of head, shoulders, knees and toes! :) Good luck!

Kelle said...

I am so glad to know we aren't the only ones with wild sunbeams. Every week after church I feel like I need a nap to recover after primary. Hope your baby is ok.

AMY PALMER said...

I have been teaching kids and working at a camp for years. People think it is the easiest job ever. I just tell them, "spend one day doing what I do, you'll need a vacation."
Your outfit is amazing as always.

Christie said...

My hubby and I taught the 3 year olds when we were first married and thought they were so cute but hard! Now that I have a 3 year old, I can tell you that it is the funniest and funnest age!!!

Kar-N said...

hahah that is so cute but so true. I was just spending some quality time with my 2 year or cousin and shes getting there lol

Deveny said...

I taught the Sunbeams last year and now moved up with them. They're HILARIOUS; I even started a recurring blog segment about all the stuff they say. hahaha

Maria said...

I completely feel you on this! I teach at a child development center and I teach the classes for 2 months old to 5 year olds. I think my hardest classes are my 2 and 3 year old classes.

Someone In Mind said...

Syd,

Here are my best suggestions. Teaching primary at any age is challenging. Especially the 3 year olds.

Break your 50 minutes into different sections and stick to the sessions.

1. Opening. Ask the kids what they did over the weekend. Have an opening prayer. Sing a song. Review last weeks lesson.

2. Object lesson to introduce the lesson. Get creative!

3. Teach lesson. Keep it SHORT. Ask the kids questions and involve them.

4. Have them follow you in a line and walk around the church practicing being quiet. Get a drink.

5. Sing a wiggle song when you get back into the room.

6. Art project. (nothing messy. kids love color and crayons.)

7. Bean bag toss. Toss the bean bag to each child asking them a question from your lesson. Even the same question works. ie. What is something you can do that is an act of service?

8. Put a sticker on a chart by their name if they were reverent.

9. Make sure you prepared. Don't wing it.

These are just idea's but breaking it up into sections helps so much. It will take tons of stress off you and make it way more fun, especially with you and Ty's.

Just wait till Everett is a few months older and won't sleep and wiggles the whole time. Ah, good memories will be made...NO?

Time seriously baffles me during sunbeams. It feels like 5 hours. Birthday parties are like this too so keep that in mind for Everett later. Don't ever invite those kids over to your house for more than 2 hours. They will eat you alive. ;)

Hope it helps.

aislin said...

i'm a nanny to a three year old & an 18 month old. two little girls that are all go go go [minus heavenly nap time]. it's a lot of work & a lot of fun!!

jamie @ [kreyv] said...

The sunbeams are the hardest ones, but the cutest ones! You're exactly right. You get through the lesson in about three seconds. It's all about the snacks and the crayons!

jessica olsen said...

Ladybugs. I taught sunbeams for 4 years straight and you need to give them pretend pet ladybugs. Let me explain. Print off a pic of a ladybug for each child and bring them to class as a very special surprise. Tell them they are pet ladybugs, let them color and name them and then cut them out. Explain that from now on they must sit on their ladybugs to keep them from flying away. If they don't stay in their seat with those little bums on the ladybug, it will fly away!! (I would gather them up at the end of class and put them in a "cage"). It sounds insane but it seriously works! They take it so seriously and are very devoted to sitting on them.It alleviates a lot of the stress of teaching such little kids, especially in sharing time when none of them seem to want to stay in their seats. Good luck!

Jamie said...

When I taught sunbeams I never had chairs in the room and I made it very routine so they knew exactly what to expect. We all went to the bathroom together first and we practiced arm folding and being reverent in the room. Then we went over the 3 things to do when we pray (flod arms, close eyes, and STAY REVERENT!!!!). Then I gave them a quite snack in coffee filters to eat while I taught a 5 min lesson and we talked about it. Then we drew or made something that had to do with the lesson and said a prayer. Routine is key to keep from chaos. Sorry this is so long!!

Brittany H said...

Those sunbeams are nuts, gotta love em.

Mrs. Baker said...

love the outfit! i want that top from frock candy!

Katie said...

I taught sunbeams ONCE when I was newly married and living with my parents. Let's just say, they didn't learn anything unless it involved buying and selling pretend ice cream cones between the chairs. Yup, gotta love 'em!!

Taylor Morgan said...

so true! James and I were teaching Sunbeams together and loved it! They cracked us up every week. Once I had a sunbeam break into rap/break dancing for me out of the blue. It was hilarious! We just got released not long ago and miss it. Have fun with them!

melissamevans said...

So cute! 3 year olds are adorable!

Lauren said...

Oh the joys of Sunbeams. I taught a class of 11 a couple years back. That was insane. I was excited if we even got through the opening prayer. Ha ha ha.

The Jones said...

Love the bright blue! Three-year-olds are a riot...I think the hardest thing is JUST what you said about activities taking half the time you planned them too. Attention spans and points of interest are so random at that age!

Alison said...

That was recently our calling! Here are some suggestions.... :)

1. They won't understand it at first, but they love Simon Says. It's a good break for the middle of class if they're getting rowdy.

2. Before you walk down the hall, have them all line up at the door and ask, "When we're walking down the hall, do we (run, scream, wave our arms like this, etc.) or (walk quietly, whisper: "have very quiet voices," fold our arms gently, etc.)?" When they pass the test, you leave, and remind them of what they said while you're walking.

3. Have some sort of reverence chart. Ours had Jesus at the top (being reverent makes you closer to Jesus), which they actually seemed to kind of understand.

4. Start class every week by listening to their stories about the week, their favorite movies, whatever they want to talk about.

5. Use coloring as an ending activity.

6. Sit on the ground in a circle and spin the bottle - whoever it lands on says their favorite animal (or whatever applies to the lesson).

Good luck! You'll love them so much it'll kill you to be released :)

Chloe Jacqueline said...

You look beautiful! Everything you said about three year olds is extremely accurate! In university I have done a lot of work at preschools and I have total respect for the teachers because those little people can be a handful! I am sure you did great however! They are totally lovey and cute and think the world of you!

Stacy Dickinson said...

Love your blog! It is such wonderful inspiration. You have a beautiful life and family!

All these are so true. I work at the VBS at my church in the summer and am constantly running down hallways after 3 year olds or herding 20 of them into the bathroom. Crazy, but I love it.

Jenni Austria Germany said...

being a teacher (although not of 3 year old's) has taught me some of the same things...like, planning a 50 minute lesson plan seems well and good until you get 14 minutes into the class and realize the students are done and they're staring at you, waiting for something to do next. simon says, anyone?

I used to teach the 3-year-olds! I actually looked forward to that two hours every Sunday because I knew I'd be endlessly entertained. I'd go home with my cheeks hurting from smiling and laughing so much. You just have to love the innocence and mischievousness of little children :)

Hahaha, I had to teach the Sunbeams last year and we started planning for bathroom breaks and of course drink breaks after the snack. And drawing breaks, and game breaks lol. My partner and I ended up only teaching for about ten minutes out of the hour! :) Good luck!!

Kristie said...

Haha, I just started teaching the Sunbeams too, but instead of cutting me a break and calling my husband as my co-teacher, it's just me. I definitely feel you on the 15 minute activities lasting 5. Haha. Gotta love Primary!

kristen said...

Sydney, I love your blog. A lot. And may I just say how crazy impressed I am that you still do that wavy-perfect hairstyle so often? Dang girl, I don't have a baby and it's still hard to find the motivation to do anything more than a sloppy bun (with extra sloppy). Kudos!

Casey said...

we work with high-schoolers, who are sometimes like 3 year olds, but then again sometimes I am, too. It's all really a matter of perspective, I don't care for the abc's so much anymore, but having all the attention and sitting on my husband's lap is sometimes necessary. sounds like it was lovely. and hope everett's head is all better!

Elena said...

I just talked to a 3 yr old who apparently has her bones superglued together! Hah!

LOVE that bright purple skirt. Would like one of my own!

Britney said...

Haha this list made me laugh! I loved when you said that your 15 min activity really turned into only lasting 5 seconds--I can imagine that happening. I just started teaching the 11 year old girls in church and I promise you that the attention spam doesn't get that much better ;) But it's hilarious, so I tend to not mind. That's so exciting that you and Tyson get to do it together! I think I would probably lose my straight face far too much if my husband was there. Keep this coming--I have a feeling you're going to have tons of hilarious/sweet stories with this calling :).

Stephanie said...

oh- the three year old's momma (me!) is laughing hard. great post. =)
(and on an aside, i remember attempting to brush my (other) three year old's teeth with one hand while simultaneously trying to nurse the three week old with the other hand (and, uh breast obviously ;) good times. taking care of children is one big (sometimes scary) fantastic ride!

Gabrielle said...

Thanks for the laugh. I have a 3.5 yr old, and all of that is so true. Particularly love the point about expert drawings of spiky hair; all my daughter's smiley faces have the coolest spiky hair. Plus the 15 min activities lasting 5 seconds - oh the number of times I set her up with an art activity expecting it to last a good 10 mins at least. Sit down for a few seconds, 'muuuuummmm done now, what can I do next!!!!' (typically asked while bouncing grabbing my hands or climbing on me). I help at her preschool (ten 3–4 yr olds) once every 3 weeks for 3.5 hrs, and it is the most exhausting morning ever. I don't know how anyone has the energy to be a fulltime preschool teacher.

Femme Fatale said...

LOve love love the necklace! too bad the don't ship to Amsterdam :( xo

Shilah said...

Aw so jealous! My first calling out if high school was teaching four year olds. Best calling EVER. At the next ward I went to it took them two weeks to call me to teach the ten years olds which I loved but my heart belongs to junior primary. I'm the official sub at my new ward but I just got done teaching seven year olds last year, and the wonderful thing is that some things never change: 1. hiding is irisistable and 2. The one-must-pee-therefor-all-must-pee phenomenon never goes away. Congratulations on your calling! You'll rock it.

Erinn T said...

Oh, soon enough Syd...you'll have a 3 year old running the roost at your house too! haha, those little peanuts. I let them get away with everything!

Oh 3 year olds are SO difficult.. be brave!

Krista said...

My husband and I had the same calling just over a year ago. It's hilariously wonderful! The thing that kept them the most occupied for the most amount of time was the silly cd of songs that came with the manual. We would turn that on and give them something to color and they would dance and draw for about 20 minutes. Heaven. We figured that out just before we got released. Go figure.

I teach four year olds. I do a little primary picnic (where we sit on a blanket and eat some grahams) before the lesson even starts to get the little jitters out and hear all about the weekly events and all the little family secrets. Then we start the lesson with a prayer and they are usually decently reverent. too fun.

TIS TRUE! 3 year old are the cutest, albeit a handful!

My husband and I teach 4 going 5. He loves telling BOM stories where the battle scenes are suddenly blood and guts everywhere. The boys love it...

projectdowhatyoulove said...

ha ha Too cute! Speaking as a fellow sunbeam teacher I know exactly how that goes. Trick is being as animated as possible and for going to the bathroom you have to play follow the leader doing all kinds of different things as you walk, make everything a game. ha ha ha sounds like quite the adventure. BTW you look lovely as usual!

Caley said...

Thomas and I had a very similar experience a few years ago. We had 10 four-year olds, who, by the sounds of it, are still pretty much 3 year olds. Church was hilarious, but exhausting. As crazy as it sounds, I still miss them a lot, even though we were only there for a few months...it gets better with time. Promise!

Shauntelle said...

How fun! Hope you enjoy the Sunbeams. My husband and I work in nursery--it's quite the adventure! How fun for you to get them right at the beginning of the year when they're new to the whole out-of-nursery thing. :)

Shauntel said...

My best advice: take a bottle of bubbles. Keeps the 3-4 year olds entertained for at least ten minutes. Which, as you know, is practically an eternity. After the prayer and the lesson, which generally last about thirty seconds right? Bust out the bubbles. Seriously.

Oh, and Wheels on the Bus. And Ring Around the Rosies. Over and over and over and over again.

love the polka dots and leopard together!
