Drawing the Line. Sort of.

My girls are still a little young to enjoy a Sunday sermon. Sunday school is fine, but "big church" with mom? Not so much.

I'm guessing my girls aren't the only ones, because the greeters at the doors always seem to have a ready supply of kids activity sheets on hand.

Last Sunday as we were getting ready to leave the house ...

Megan: Can I knit during church?

Me: No.

Megan: Why not?

Me: Because that would be rude.

Megan: Okay, then can I bring my iPod?

Me: No.

Megan: Why?

Me: Again - RUDE. You should be listening to the pastor while he's giving the message, not knitting or playing games on your iPod.

Megan: You let me do those activity sheets.

Me: Yes, well ...

Megan: Can I just bring my dot-to-dot book then?

Me: Fine.


  1. With you on this one. I won't let my 13 year old bring a book, but he tucks sudoku puzzles in the pages of his Bible and I let it slide. Go figure.
