From the day they are born, some of my babies are not good public sleepers. They are too intense and determined not to miss anything. I am not kidding, even as newborns. Lydia is the queen of intensity. So my arms are usually a bit sore after Sunday Mass since I don't let my littles run around when we have to go to the back of church. Yesterday, after Mass we took the family out to lunch and attended a wonderful performance of The Sound of Music by a local homeschool group. I literally held Lydia for hours.
The perk that made me so happy? You guessed it, she fell asleep for all of the second half of the show. It is such a delight because I got to snuggle her and see most of the wonderful performance whose cast included many friends.
Wonderful performance Sarah, Elizabeth and Angela! Bravo!
