So my husband said he was talking to his mom today and she said she wants us to go to Christmas Eve church service with her and my FIL. My husband said to her the concern would be if Rocco would behave. She said if he gets fussy, we could just take him to the nursery. Ok. I don't want to go. Rocco is a good baby but he's starting to get to that age where he's not liking strangers, all he wants to do is get down and play or stand on my lap and bounce, etc. In other words, he doesn't sit still. We don't go to church so it won't be a familiar place. And I just feel like if we go, I'm just going to be sentenced to an hour in a room while everyone else is in the service. What's the point?? Why don't I just stay home with him? You know what I mean? And I can clearly remember my MIL complaining about a screaming baby at a church service last year. I don't want to be "those people" who everyone stares at because their kid is crying, or just generally making noise. I told my husband I don't want to go. I don't know what he's going to tell his mom. Maybe if Rocco was a tiny baby where he slept all the time. Or older where he understands you're supposed to be quiet in a church. But like I said, he's at that age where he just wants to squirm and play and "talk"
