The Sunday Nap

A typical day at church for the Ice Cream family:




(Pablo takes advantage of the quiet to draw without disturbances)

I've had several people ask me for advice on how to keep kids quiet at church. I've tried many things through the years, cheerios, hand puppets, coloring books, magnet sets, etc. I think I've finally stumbled on the perfect reverence solution. Let your kids stay up till Midnight watching cartoons and then wake them up at 6am Sunday morning. The only downfall to this is if you have a loud snorer. Cheeks snores louder than a rumbling volcano. And he drools.


HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY!!!

It helps if you have afternoon church, too. That's right in the middle of nap time.

I wish that worked for my kids!! When I sleep-deprive them they just become hyper-active and cranky! Seeing your snoozin' cuties just reminded me that it's time for my Sunday afternoon nap :)

That is hilarious!

Lol!!! None of mine nap in church any more, not even the baby. There is just too much to see and hear.

This is great. Now how can MOM get a Sunday nap?

I love this advice. Today only one of ours slept. They all stayed up fairly late (10:30) and got up sorta early (7:00). But then the other 3 noisy ones just kept being noisy through the whole thing. Didn't even stay distracted with crayons. Oh well, there's always next week.

I agree with Jen--that's great for the kids, but what about MOM's nap? I never get one--wahhhh!
