Crying children and Baby Dolls

So I had an unusual experiance yesterday dealing with crying children. One boy cried because he didn’t have money for offering. It went like this:

*Boy Nathan gets his coins to put in the offering*
Teacher: Thank you Nathan, the Lord loves a cheerful giver.
*Boy Benjamin suddenly pops out of his seat and walks towards the offering*
Benjamin: I want to be a cheerful giver.
Teacher: No Benjamin, sit down it’s not your turn.”
*tears begin to well up*
Tim: *grabs ben* It’s ok you’re cheerful, right?

Apparently not. The teacher gave him a coin to put in but he still was crying about wanting cookies (Cry baby). Also because my friend neglected to give them cookies during story time. Cookies really quiet kids up. As the cookies are slowly distributed through the class, the children noises reduce to the calm sounds of tiny teeth crunching cookie.

Some other kid cried too. I think he was new,

Tim: Want to play with puzzles? *shakes head* play with the house *shakes head* cars? *shakes head*
*i cajole him to do a puzzle. Where he doesn’t move any of the pieces, but some random kid comes in and finishes the puzzle for him*
Tim: ok lets sit down.
*kid cries, silently*
Tim: (Ruh oh) *attempts to comfort him*
Kid: I want ty bawddy.
Tim: don’t worry your mom’s coming soon. First we’re going to play games, hear a story, eat cookies, have fun…
Kid: I have to bawdy.
Tim: What?
Kid: I have to–
Tim: *sudden revelation* Oh do you have to POTTY?

Another incredibly awkward moment was when these two little girls wanted to play with dolls. “We want the babies,” they said. So I opened up the cabinet with the babies and they took them out.
*girl hands me a naked doll and jumper*
Me: uhh, can’t you put it on yourself?
*I fasten the jumper. Girl gives me some weird baby coat.*
Me: You can’t do this yourself?
