Day 22 A Night of Children

I was going to start by saying that I had the night off...but that wouldn't exactly describe this evening.  While I did not have to cook this evening, I did help serve 12 children their meals tonight.  We did a Sunday School swap night.  Our Sunday school class babysat the children of the another class while they had some time together, and they will repay the favor for us next week.  I must say it was a bit strange to pass out pizza and ice cream tonight.  Somewhere deep inside me, I was thinking I should have cooked for these kiddos!  There was a time, I would not have thought much of this Friday night dinner, but tonight was different.  Everything seemed to be about the same color on the plates.  I missed the color of our meals.  Don't get me wrong, the kids loved it, but I am really starting to see a change in my view of food.  Sure, one junk food night shouldn't kill anybody...but I am pretty sure these will be few and far between, and I think we will be all the better for it.  All in all, I think the kids had fun playing in the gym, and I know my boys are both worn out!  I am feeling the tiredness of the first trimester, but otherwise I am  feeling well and had fun playing with the kids.  It was nice to share an evening with others.  Tomorrow is grocery day, and guess what....I am actually looking forward to it!  Every time I go, I get better and quicker.  Bring on the buggy, I am ready for it!
