As cool as a cucumber. I would like people to think that I am calm, but when I’m pressed, I really just freeze or sometimes make irrational decisions and refuse help.
My not being cool was probably shown best this past Sunday. Of course, it may seem like things went worse to me than they appeared to others. Either way the hour-long crying in stereo was horrible.
And now, for the “foot in mouth” part of my blog:
Our church has a cry room for mothers only. I completely understand and respect the reasoning behind it being just for women. As a mother who nursed, I understand wanting a little privacy. In fact, I didn’t want anyone around while I nursed! But, as you can imagine, having 2 babies at once changes all the rules. It changes parenting rules. Dad has just as much of a role in caring for a baby as Mom does. It’s not easy.
I knew that there is a separate room for men that had a changing table. I was unaware, though, that that room is actually another cry room with a window and a rocker, too! And, thanks to our very ‘on-top-of-things’, and thoughtful Children’s Minister, Shannon, that room will also have audio soon! Yay! Todd can help me in a cry room when I need him! We could even take turns. Oh, I hope this makes going to church a little easier.
