Which Eternity Is It?

In Primary yesterday, the question was asked, "What do you think it will be like when Jesus comes again?" All the typical responses were given. But from the back of the room I heard, "There won't be any school!" He, he, giggle, giggle, crack a grin......

Wait a sec. Hold up......calm, cleansing breaths. OK, let's be rational and think about this. For eternity--is there school or isn't there? My personal belief holds true that school is a gift sent to mothers. A gift from heaven. Ah...so....what's the deal going to be for eternity? School or no school? Are they going to be with me all day, everyday, FOREVER!? panic, panic, lamaze breathing. I demand an answer!! I'm stomping my foot right now! Seriously! Don't you think that mothers everywhere need to know? What if no one goes to school? What will we do? Is there homeschooling in the eternities and no one has told me?! Oh my mercy goodness, I'm feeling faint.

Someone has to know the answer to this question. Maybe there was some fine print that I forgot to read somewhere: "Eternity will feel like one looong Sabbath Day." Is that how it will work? I'll grit my teeth and hold my breath for 3 hours hoping they don't do something too embarrassing, and then we will come home and everyone will fight and destroy the house? Really? Please, someone tell me. Hurry...

I'm thinking we should all sign a petition. If that doesn't work, I'm stocking up on valium.

There will be school and they will like it because it will be Heavenly. But they will be heavenly too so we will be sad that they are at school instead of with us.

I hope there is at least early morning seminary. If I had to survive it then I believe my child should suffer....right?

I vote for Jodys plan! When Wade was in the Phillipines he met an American who lived there with his family and for $50 a month he had two nannies who also cooked and cleaned. I think it's time for us to move!!! I bet Heaven is like that!

Coming from a teacher - I do hope there is no school, because there is nothing celestial about school. Trust me on this one.

Remember they will be perfect when he returns.... so you will want them to be home with you. Picture this.... perfect children covered in white with frosting for dinner and hairspray by the pounds lined up on your perfectly clean bathroom counter. Now when you think you need the valium, breathe and find your happy place..... frosting, hairspray, perfect children.... chanting this will help calm you down.
