the problem...

...with having your hub take your kid during church is that when your ADD kicks in and you reach your sit-still limit, you don't have a convenient excuse to get up and leave or walk around mid-lesson, but you forget that, and do it anyway.

Does that mean you don't want a babysitter when you have church but the potential babysitter has Stake Conference? Dammit.

it's so true! it's the best thing about having kids at church. no more sitting for 3 hours! and you don't have to pretend to be thirsty to do it. you can legitamitely (suddenly i can't spell that!) stand in the back of the room and bounce and sway. and not look crazy. hopefully.

My hub figured this one out 25 years ago. Now he borrows babies.

SERIOUSLY. Fortunately I'm back in nursery, where the church is still true.

Babies are definitely good excuses to get up and out...of church meetings that is.

Ha ha. I love the above comment: how shrewd and clever.

I find that too. If a sunday school lesson is extra boring, I take Henry out (if I'm fortunate to have him). Maybe that's why I always see mom's and dad's getting up multiple times during church even though the kid isn't crying. It's more for them than the kid... Mystery solved!!

I have to agree. What's kind of embarassing is when you realize you're swaying and/or bouncing...with no babe in arms.
