Sundays are supposed to be a day of rest, relaxation and rejuvenation-yeah right. Carson is generally a good kid but for some reason (ever since he was born even) he has a REALLY hard time at church. For the first time in my life I dread going to church because I spend most of the three hour block in the hall doing one of two things
1) entertaining him because he was squealing super loud in Sunday school or Relief Society or
2) I am trying to get him to fall asleep...key word there is TRY.
Beginning the New Year I was optimistic that it would bring change. So, initially I was excited that our church time was changing from 8:30 am to 10:30 am because I felt like we were rushing and frantic to get out the door and I was hoping that Carson would appreciate and adhere to this schedule a little better. However, our new time is right when he normally naps. One would think that if he was tired enough, like he was today, he would pass out. Unfortunately, instead he fights it. At church all of the other kids his age seem to either quietly play on the floor or sit calmly in their mothers laps. For one child, he takes up so much energy and I am starting to think that he is a high maintenance child.
Can anyone else relate, or am I just sensitive?
