Welcome to my world. I *just* vacuumed... Wipe your feet before you come in.

As you may know, I have recently started attending R.C.I.A classes at our parish. I have been going to church every Sunday and Holy Days of Obligation. Since Joe works on the weekends, I take the kids with me. Will usually naps through the entire service and when he is awake, he is quiet and just looks at the stained glass windows. Maggie, on the other hand, is sliding up and down the pews, playing with the missals, touching the people in front of us, singing the Backyardigan's theme song, in general, just misbehaving. What do I do? Today we had to actually LEAVE the service durning the Homily. She was just.so.bad. I suppose its just that this is all new to her & she can't keep still for one stinking hour a week, but really. She's 3 1/2 years old! I suppose I could take her to the in-laws while I go to church, but then what? We want to raise our children in the Catholic church. How is she suposed to learn how to behave in church if she never goes? If any of you take your little ones to church and have any suggestions for me, I would really appreciate it.

Remember me to Herald Square

We played "hookey" yesterday. I took Will to my Mom's for the day and Joe, Maggie, My sister in law Theresa, and myself spent a wonderful day walking the streets of New York City.

We took a carriage ride through Central Park,

visited the Free Public Library, St. Patrick's Cathedral and only had 1 person glare at me for hitting her in the ankle with the stroller.
Yes, I put Mag in a stroller. There was NO way she was going to be walking for 5 hours and it made it easier to keep track of her. She likes to run ahead of us.

Kickin' Back - Will Style

Looks comfy doesn't he?? This is the sleep of the healthy.

Yes, his test results came back negative. The right kidney does drain a bit slower than the left, but there is no need for surgery or concern. We have a follow-up ultrasound scheduled for Feb 13th. Posted by Picasa
