In Between

Since the arrival of Jonathan Boy, we have been “demoted” to sitting at the back of the congregation in church. Not because Jonathan can’t behave during church service but we just want to avoid any disturbance. On the other hand, I think we have also assumed a new post as an “observer”.

As I was in church as usual on this Sunday morning, I observed that in most families, young children will be sitting in between the parents with one parent sitting at each end. The seating arrangement usually will look like this…Daddy, Kid 1, Kid 2…, and Mommy. Looking at this, I suddenly realised that it is happening in me too. Before the arrival of Jonathan, both of us seated side by side, close to each other so that we can feel each other’s heat. And now, when Jonathan is with us, we put him in between us because both of us also want to feel Jonathan’s heat. 😀

    Ever so true.

    The same will happen when you walk in a row!

    Guess we want to protect our kids, so we flank then on both sides!

    Happy are they though!
