Babysitting duties

Hubby and I prefer our "normal" seat in church which seems to be somewhat closer to the front and Hubby and I also hadn't had little children sit with us ever since our baby will be 16 in a few days. Out of all the people that she passed before coming to us, the lady came to our pew and said she needed someone to watch her two small grandchildren while she sang. I looked at hubby and hubby looked at me. We were like, what the heck!

I wasn't used to having someone to tell to sit down, be quiet, stop playing. Then I had to find tissue in my purse because the little girl nose kept running. I am used to focusing on the church service and praising God how I want to. So I was sitting there and this little hand touched my arm and I leaned over to see what one of the young children wanted. He held his private parts and said he got to go and pee. The other one then said that she had to go and pee too. UGHHHHH. This is really one reason I don't fool with other people's smaller children. I don't even remember the last time I got up out of the middle of service and walked down the aisle so I didn't go. I asked hubby if he could look around and find an usher and have them to take the two small kids to the restroom. He looked around but the ushers were not looking our way. So he said that he would take the little boy and that he would find a female in the lobby to take the little girl. I didn't notice hubby come back but I looked around and saw where he just stayed in the back of the church with the smaller children.

Here is a rule of thumb for small children: Parents, keep your own children; if they are sick, keep them at home. If you know they are a hand full for you, they will be a hand full to somebody else. And that's all I have for now.
