One more form of Baby Preparation is teaching Margaret (4) how to behave during Mass. The first two we trained at age two to last through the Mass, but life gets a little more hectic with more kids and we hadn't yet gotten around to Margaret. But with Baby on his or her way, I can't handle three kids out in the Cry Room, so Margaret has been going to Daddy Boot Camp to learn to stay and stay quietly inside church during Mass.

But our Mass is at 12:30, so the girl usually falls asleep, as she did underneath the pew today, having crawled under there because she was so angry at me. These naps are just fine with us!
