I'm Running Out of Options
Today, my four-year-old belched (LOUDLY) in the middle of sacrament meeting. And then, after we very sternly told him not to do that ever again, what do ya know, he did it. again. It was completely disgusting and embarrassing. And to top it all off, his two year old brother decided to follow in his brother's footsteps and display his own loud version of a burp. That equals three belches during one very quiet sacrament meeting. I suppose I could use the "Oh, he's only four" bit, but I can't use that forever. I mean what if he cracks one off when he's eighteen in the middle of sacrament meeting. Should I just look up at the bishop and say, "Oh, he's only eighteen"? That just wouldn't work. I've been dealing with their naughtiness for far too long during that hour of church and we just can't seem to come up with a solution to it. We've tried just about everything. Snacks, coloring, puzzles, toys, books, muzzles. (I'm kidding about the muzzles of course. Although it does sound tempting :)). Then we tried limiting those things to only one toy or one snack or one puzzle. I'm running out of ideas here. Please help me!!!
