Do you ever have a Sunday that is jammed pack and then to top off your ever so busy day your children make you rethink why you had them in the first place????? Well today was THAT day! I had a meeting this morning at 10:30 for Enrichment and took Ashlyn with me. We had a meeting with the Bishop at noon and Brian got the boys bathed and dressed while I was gone. Our church starts at 2:00 pm WHICH we HATE!! Everyone that is not Mormon asks us if we can just go at different times, and it's hard to explain that you go to church in your ward family boundaries. It feels that all day is a waiting period for church to begin. Anyways while meeting with the Bishop, the kids did pretty good. We went home for about 45 minutes then headed back to church. Okay our kids are young but the boys are not that young where they need snack all day long. I have a rule that I don't take out snack until Sacrament has been passed and the young men have been excused to sit with their families. This is not a new rule but I swear EVERY Sunday they ask and ask. Well today was border line tantrum because they wanted snack or drink or SOMETHING. Why they could not just sit there and be QUIET is beyond me!!! It is NOT enjoyable to be at church when your kids are acting up. Last week Brian had to work and I ventured out with them alone and they did not behave like they did today. So I shipped them off to primary and all is good. Ashlyn is pretty good walking around and flirting with everyone. So I got out of Relief Society before Brian finished in Priesthood. I got Rayle and then Teagan. Before Teagan even left his classroom he was having a melt down crying about a Tootsie roll. As we were walking away he had a FULL OUT tantrum lying on the floor and screaming and crying. HELLO he is 6 years old. I was not pleased to say the least. I could not believe what I was seeing. So YES some Sundays just seem to be not worth it. It's suppose to help start the week all nice and calm, but today was the furthest thing from that. Well I guess there is always next week to try a calm and peaceful Sunday.
