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.
