((((((((((((((hugs))))))))))))) thanks Irene, you're one of my faves too!! *keep meaning to add you to my buddy list, i dont have anyone on there, and I wasnt in here for a long time*
I will confess that I dont always bring all of them. Definetly the two younger girls (especially as one is in the children's choir) but unless I have the oldest with me (which isn't always possible) I alternate boys, one one week, one the next. And occasionally none, so I can actually go
to church. I tried both by myself and they divided and conquered, and it wasn't pretty. And the Yia Yia Patrol was not amused.
Seriously, they are a handful, so far we have made it to at most 10 minutes actually in the church service itself before we have to go to the quiet room, then the nursery.
"Btw, are we counting step children (that don't live full time in the home) in the poll?"
Of course, why not, they come to your house and eat your food and draw on your walls and complain "I dont wanna go such and such is on tv" like the rest of them!
