This past Sunday we had Stake Conference. I was pretty nervous, and just banking on the fact that we would be leaving early due to Kate's behavior. I packed TONS of treats, her Church Book, books to read, paper to color on, more treats, and her big sippy cup filled to the brim with milk. We got there a little early so we could somewhat stake out the best spot to sit. We chose a spot near the back but in the middle of the row. To the right of us we had 2 little girls the same age, and to the left were more little kids. We didn't know anyone around us, but us mother's figured it would be best if our girls shared the books and toys to entertain each other. The other two little girls were acting up quite a bit, and had to be taken out several times throughout the two hours. It was a whole different story for Katie Baby! She did amazing! We didn't have to take her out once. She didn't act up and do her silly little tantrum. She just played with her own toys, and when she was bored of that, she would pull out a treat, and when she was done with that she would play some more, then do the routine all over again! And it wasn't like we had space at all. Every seat on the row was taken by the adults, then the kids had the space at our feet to play with. If anything, I had to take Ryan out and sit him in time out! I am so proud of my little girl! I'm not holding my breath, but now I'm hoping this is how she'll act at Church so I can maybe get something out of it.
