The Technically Accurate Swear

The Chef Outfit
Christopher Cunningham tells us this story about a very technical voice from the back of the room.
The Renegade Diaper
Katie Walston tells us the story of a mother who had more important things on her mind.
Palerider from our LDS.net forums shares a story about one six year old with a secret identity.
We had a visitor in our ward primary, and she was talking to all the kids in primary and she asked them to go around the room and introduce themselves. One little boy about 6 years old, when it was his turn, said, “My name is Proffessor Rasnick McTinkerpot”
The Unwanted Gift
Rebekah Eaton tells us about a child who shares very accurate examples.
The Turn Taker
Susan Cunningham tells us the story about one particularly forgetful child.
The week after I was called into Primary, I was sitting in sharing time. In the front row of the senior primary children there was one boy who was super eager to help. Every time someone was called up to volunteer he would respond, “I haven’t had a turn yet.”
Allison Foulk tells us the story of a teacher who got a little carried away.
A few of the Primary teachers were acting out the story of Abinidi. The teacher playing Abinidi was trying to kill a bit of time at the end of the story and improvised the line, “God will save me from you, King Noah!”
All the adults in the room froze, wondering if there had been a change to the Book of Mormon we were unaware of. The primary teacher quickly realized his error, and then had to launch into an explanation about how he would be saved in heaven. True doctrine . . . but maybe a bit confusing for the Primary kids!
The Dam Breaker
Vort from our LDS.net forums shared a story about one little boy with an uncanny knowledge about his anatomy.
I was in a Primary meeting where a bishopric counselor was talking to the children about using good language. At one point, he asked the children, “What kinds of words shouldn’t we say?” The children looked around at each other silently.
One hand timidly crept up, and the bishopric counselor said, “Yes, Bobby?” Bobby said, ” . . . butt hole?”
Immediately, two dozen small hands shot up.
Becky Heckenlively shared a story about one child who was concerned about every single creature.
I was teaching a junior primary class the story about Noah’s ark, and I mistakenly said, “Noah brought two of every creature onto the ark to save them from the flood.”
One little girl looked very confused, raised her hand, and asked, “Even the sharks?”
The Never Ending Laughter
To bring us home, Hydi Hoeger shares one funny primary moment after the next that we’ve all been able to witness at one point or another.
For me it was the little things that happen all the time. Kids breathing into the microphone while parents desperately try to get them to share their talks. The kid who likes to share a little too much information about his family life. The little ballerina who can’t stay in her seat. The Sunbeams who know 2 or 3 words from a song but give those 2 or 3 words lots of energy. Huge manly men having tea parties in nursery. Watching other people play dirty diaper roulette in nursery.
