The annual Primary program is a delightful tradition in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. An entire meeting devoted to simple doctrines, catchy songs and cute kids? Sounds like a perfect Sunday.
But the program doesn’t always go without a hitch. Here are 14 kinds of kids who make every Primary program memorable and delightful.
1. The waver
From the beginning to the end, this kid makes sure everyone in the audience knows he sees them.
2. The perfectionist
She’s had her part memorized for weeks. She stands up right on cue. If it weren’t for her, the whole program might fall into chaos.
3. The theater kid
She was BORN to be on stage. Or at the stand. Same thing.
4. The one with stage fright
This poor kid freezes in front of a crowd. And on Primary program Sunday, there’s always a big crowd.
5. The grumpy kid
He’s mad, but he’s here. And somehow, his anger is kind of cute.
6. The excited kid
He’s been counting down the days and now the big day is HERE! His glee is contagious.
7. The adorable Sunbeam
We’re not sure what he said, but he was really cute when he said it.
8. The preteen
No, that tall girl in the back has not turned 12 yet. She just looks like it.
9. The amnesiac
Despite his parents’ best efforts in helping him memorize his part, he freezes in front of a crowd.
10. The one who makes his mom cry
Especially common in youngest children.
11. The shy kid
This program is taking the shy kid way out of his comfort zone. Maybe he can stand in the back and make sure everyone is singing loudly enough?
12. The musical genius
He’ll get a solo, or maybe even conduct the congregation for the closing hymn. With this kind of talent, the options are limitless.
13. The one that’s too cool
Most commonly a male over age 10.
14. The one that makes everything more adorable
When the program doesn’t go perfectly, this kid more than makes up for it. After all, everyone tried their hardest!
