There was a little girl at church yesterday that was just running around, playing and greeting people during mass. This minute the church ushers take her to her parents, the next minute she has found another way to get around running and playing again. I find it rather distracting when children are left lose like that.
The little girl eventually found her way to where we were sitting and wanted my children to join in the fun play. I was a bit shocked when my soon to be 4 year old daughter said, "this is church and Jesus would like you to be quiet so mummy and daddy can listen". The little girl then sat down with us for a while and joined them in making stick drawings on paper with colored pencils. But she is a restless one and after 10 minutes she was up and about.
I was kinda happy and proud of my child at her response. That means all the talking,
