I've never joined in with What I Wore Sunday, partly because getting out the door for mass with all of the children dressed is tricky enough without a photoshoot! This week I waited until we got home from church and had a snack, at which point two of my children were naked and the rest were covered in mud (don't ask), and I opted for the "just with the baby" photo. That counts, right?
These days my go-to Sunday outfit can be classified into one of two categories: a skirt and a button down shirt, or a shirtdress. Because, nursing, you guys! And my go-to accessory would have to be either a baby carrier or a baby blanket, or a set of squirmy twins. :-P
Josephine, on the other hand, is *much* cuter, with smocked dresses and bonnets, or, as Ben likes to say "dressed like a pilgrim." She loves to sleep through mass, which works just fine by me, as two two year olds is just plenty to keep us occupied. Today's mass highlight would have to be that someone brought a seeing eye dog to mass, or that the little girl next to us had a whole sheet of barrettes with her as her toy (I'm taking notes! Genius!).
Our one favorite life hack for going to church with a lot of little kids has been reading the Gospel aloud in the car on the way to church. That way, even if we are totally distracted during mass, we kind of get the gist of what's going on. Luckily, mass is good even when we aren't perfectly attentive! The sacraments are pretty great like that. What are your favorite tricks for going to church with little ones?
I loved seeing what other people wore this week! Thanks, Rosie!
