Chris goes to church at 9:30am for meetings since he is the Young Men's President. Luckily, Grammy was here to assist me in getting 2 kids ready for church. It is harder than I thought it would be!!! Cadence loves to be naked and not get on her clothes, diaper or shoes. I usually have to chase her down. Cooper is easy to dress - other than nothing fits him.
The biggest dilemma though was not the kids. IT WAS ME!!!! I forgot that I had to wear something besides a t-shirt. I knew I could fit into a maternity skirt. I thought I might just wear a maternity top - until I remembered that I was going to get to nurse Cooper while I was there. None of those work well for nursing. So in a panic, I ran out to my "summer closet" in the barn. Itried on almost every shirt that buttoned down. However, my bust is huge and my tummy is still extra large. I could barely get some of the buttons to buttons and the shirts seemed too short to cover the bulging belly. Finally, I found one shirt that looked half decent. It is ironic that this is the only shirt that looked decent on me when I got home from my mission too. I have a week to figure out what to wear to church next week. Let's hope my belly starts to shrink quickly.
Church went well. Cadence actually keep her "pretty" in her hair and showed it off to people. She was proud of her new dress. She stayed in nursery by herself two different times for about 20 minutes the first time and 10 minutes the second. Cooper was a good boy and everybody thought he was so handsome (which he is). If I can get the kids ready by myself every week, then I can do church!!!
