"YOU'RE SITTING ON MY MAGNA DOODLE!!!!"

See these cute, little, innocent faces? Who would ever want to hurt them? MMMMMEEEEEE!!!! This year at church our block starts at 12:20pm and Sacrament is last, and did I mention that my husband is in the Bishopric, so that means I wont ever have his help this year with my unruly children. Well, every week we sit somewhere between the Neely family and the Brey family. And every week when we sit down, they both giggle just a little. Having sacrament last is such a challenge to our youngest 2. Tyler and Cambelle just want to kill each other for some reason during that hour, which in turn makes me want to kill both of them in no particular order. Don't get me wrong, most weeks they will sit like little angels sent from Heaven to teach other kids in the ward how to act, but some weeks......... Today was one of "those weeks". I could not keep control of them. I'm sure to most people, they would think I am overreacting, but they made me want to check myself into the loony bin and that was before the opening prayer!!! Before we could even get into the Sacrament today, Cambelle was pitching a fit because Tyler was sitting on her magna doodle. How was she pitching a fit? By yelling it as loud as she could, "YOU'RE SITTING ON MY MAGNA DOODLE!!!!" Not such a big deal, right? Not like the Stake President was sitting one row in front of me FACING US!!! It's good to have Heather and Karen giggle because like me, I'm sure they have had these problems and I can tell they have survived without actually taking someone's life. It gives me hope that I wont be serving a life sentence any time soon. In closing I would like to thank Heather and Karen for finding comic relief in the happenings of my family. Thanks again girls. Amen.

So, before our ward changed to 9am; Matt never could go because he worked. We used to take our nieces to church, meaning 6 kids, 8 and under on my watch. I began to only care that I was there, and not how my family behaved when Michael (4) was brought to me screaming, "I HATE CHURCH! AND JESUS IS FAKE"!

I think every parent goes through that. I know plenty of time I wanted to "kill" our kids during sacrament. When I was a teenager, we had one family we would help out, because the dad was in the bishopric and she had 7 kids. One boy was a little #@%#. One time, Heather was taking him out and just as the speaker stopped talking, the little boy yelled "put me down you stupid idiot".

that is so awesome! I am so glad I am not the only one with loud naughty children. tomorrow at playgroup I will bring you some quiet little critters, it is my invention to keep kids quiet in church, it seems to work pretty well, at least until after the sacrament is passed=)

The wives of bishopric members are blessed people. So I think that even if ou do kill your children, you will still go to heaven! Just kidding. Don't try that just to see.
