Well, it is already Wednesday, and I still don't think that I have fully recovered from Sunday. The three hours of church are a whole new world once you have a baby who is old enough to make lots of noise and move around the room. This Sunday at church was quite the test of patience.
When Chase and I got to church we decided that we weren't even going to attempt sacrament meeting in the chapel this week. We decided that after Jax crawled around the entire place last week and tried to rip someones scriptures, we were going to spend sacrament in the foyer. It was a lot less stressful - not worrying too much about his loud babbling and climbing on everything - but not any easier. I still had to chase him around for the entire hour.
Well, Sunday school approached, and we decided to give it a try. Ten minutes later, we were back out in the hall. Luckily Breanne (Bateman) and her little boy M.J. were there to accompany us! :)
As Relief Society came up I decided that Jax was just going to tough it out so that I could listen to an entire lesson. I had already listened to 2 sacrament meetings from the foyer the two privious hours. The first twenty minutes of Relief Society were great. He just layed in my lap drinking his bottle like a little angel. But, that changed after he was done with the bottle. He started walking up and down the rows FARTING so loud. Not just one fart, like multiple farts - and he even ended one fart with a burp! A couple girls in my ward would turn around and we would all start laughing. My little Jax was being just a little bit too manly for Relief Society. It was pretty funny, but needless to say, I had to leave Relief Society too due to my loud farting kid.
So, once again I spent another class listening to someone else's sacrament meeting. I guess I am lucky that there were sacrament meetings going on all 3 hours so that I didn't get too bored. But, I am beginning to wonder how you make it through church when you have kids...especially ones that fart really loud.
