Missing parts of the Mass due to infant care
#24
Jayne, your poem was wonderful!  I can relate to it completely and it brought tears to my eyes at the end.

Just today I missed a good portion of the Mass because I had an antsy toddler and a wave of morning sickness.  We went downstairs where some ladies were preparing coffee and donuts.  I had a small glass of cider to settle my stomach (toddler had his bottle... no donuts during Mass!) and then we went back up when it was time to receive.

I may have to start attending the Saturday evening vigil Mass because morning sickness is worse in the... well... morning.  Hopefully only eight more weeks of this.  It gives me a good opportunity to "offer it up".
