More Primary Persuasion
Then a member of the primary presidency called on Wednesday and left a message reminding us of the event.
On Thursday, a different member (I don't know if she's part of the primary, or just a "concerned" parent of another primary-aged kid) called to ask if she could come pick up my two oldest children and give them a ride to the activity. (Thanks to the miracle of caller ID, I recognized the number, assumed it was church-related, and let the machine answer it.)
On Friday night, the "concerned parent" called again, leaving another message, asking to give the kids a ride to the activity.
On SATURDAY MORNING, shortly before the event took place, the same lady called AGAIN to ask if the kids were coming to the activity at the ward house.
GOOD GRIEF! These well-intentioned TBMs just don't give up, do they?
I suppose the matter would have dropped had I answered one of the calls and politely declined the offer, or flat out said that the kids would not be attending. I didn't think that a daily effort would be made to get my kids "activated" for a single primary activity for 6 straight days!
Anyway...its just one of those odd little post-mormon situations I find myself in from time to time.
