Pat on the Back.

I know we've all had those moments when you want to give yourself a pat on the back. I had one of those this morning. My mom is working crazy hours as an ER nurse here and therefore we have to be quiet in the morning so she can actually get some sleep. So this morning, I got myself ready and pretty (a challenge with Carter screaming to get into the shower and then screaming to be held while I got dressed) then got Carter dressed and hair spiked, and we went to church by ourselves! I managed to navigate to the church building and make it there 5 minutes early. Unfortunately there were no seats left by the door, so we had to sit on the other side of the chapel, but the good part of this was that where we sat Carter was pretty much trapped. This is the "pat yourself on the back" moment... we managed to stay in the chapel for all of sacrament! We don't ever manage this at our home ward with both Mike and I, so I was amazed Carter hung in there with just me. Now you might ask if we managed to stay for all three hours, Sunday school and relief society. Don't get too crazy on me... I managed an hour by myself and didn't want to push my luck... Although the thought did cross my mind to put him in nursery. :)
Happy Sunday to each of you! Hugs, A

Hey angie, it's been a while since I've looked at your blog. Where does your mom live? Good job on making it through church all by yourself, it's a big accomplishment! Carter is adorable and congrats on the second one on the way!

We have to sit in one of the outer benches in the chapel, where the wall is. That way he's trapped in and can't get out. That's the only way Mason can sit through all of Sacrament! It's great because he can still get down and move his legs a little :)
