I need some advice about something coming up in a couple months. Have any of you guys brought your LO's to events like graduations or weddings? BIL is graduating college and the ceremony is in June. We all want to go, obviously DH will. But, its 3.5 hours away, and it starts at 2 pm. So it will literally be an all day thing... and Kieran's nap is usually at 12 or 1. So, he would not get a nap that day. And getting him to sit through a graduation ceremony... then they want to go out to eat afterwards... this sounds like a recipe for disaster to me, but I don't know. Would you take LO to something like this? Am I being too obsessive about him getting a nap? Do your LOs miss naps sometimes?
Getting someone to watch the kids almost certainly isn't an option... the only people who can watch them are MIL and my mom. MIL will be at the graduation obviously, and I am pretty sure my mom will have to work that day. So, the only options are, I bring him or I stay home. I'm not so worried about Rowan because he will just sleep in the Baby K'Tan (hopefully, anyway).
