I need some help! We recently started going back to church (bad mommy LOL) Zayden hasn't really been much other than his baptism and a few other times.
Where we moved has an AWESOME church, very family friendly. They have a "Sunday school" type program for kids 4-6 that I put Z in (Zayden isn't 4 but they said okay --they also had a nursery play room but the kids there are much younger and I think Z is too rough for that)
So almost every Sunday now I get up, take Z to his class while mommy goes to church. (DH doesn't go)
I know next Sunday (mother's day) I heard that there isn't a class so I was thinking ahead to what to do with Zayden then. Then yesterday I go to take him to class and they had a sign class was canceled due to illness. OH NO So I have no choice but to take him with me to church (and yes I almost thought about leaving).
As expected, he was HORRIBLE. He kept talking, making rude noises, fussing. I let him color on an envelope but I didn't have anything with me. I took him out once for time out and at the end he started getting really restless, I popped his hand and he threw himself on the floor and started howling.
I know he isn't alone, but most of the kids his age are a little quieter, maybe cause they've done this before.
So what do you guys do with LOs in church? How do they behave? I figured I'd bring crayons and stuff next time but I was really unprepared this time.
