Who is Her Mother?

Toothsome #4 is a wild baby. Today at church, she hollered, "No" for the whole final hour of Sacrament meeting. She freaked out when I tried to pass her to dentist husband, so I could lead the closing song, so I just brought her up with me. After the first verse, she squirmed out of my arms and then proceeded to run around the pulpit and congregation. I finally was able to grab her and take her out into the foyer for the closing prayer. I foolishly thought I could put her down there but no she headed straight back to the chapel and I had to chase her down again. There was not one non-laughing person by the end of the meeting. I used to glare at parents who let their kids run wild during church. After all, I have managed to keep three others well behaved before she came along. Not so with her. If she is this bad now, what is she going to be like as a teenager?

Don't you hate when these things happen? You would think I would how to block the "I would never let my kid.. "thoughts I sometimes have because invariably my kid will end up doing that exact thing at some point! Sorry, doesn't sound like a fun meeting for the mom I can imagine the shade of red my face would have been!

She's getting it all out of her system NOW and will be an angelic teenager ;) (We can dream, right?)

I hope queen elizabeth is right--I have one, too. Maybe it's in the genes? ha!

At least she's cute. Or that's what I tell myself about mine.

I agree with Liz. I have a neice who got it all out of her system by the age of 5 and is now an angel from heaven all the time. :)

To be honest, I didn't even notice her running around. Those of us who have lived through it just smile, everyone else will smile in a few more years... no worries.
