Are there any mommas out there who have struggled with kids being around the same age? I have a 3 year old and 1.5 year old and needless to say doing anything outside the house is stressful. Going out to eat has now been something my husband and I try and limit, grocery shopping is more difficult than what it needs to be, and attending church is almost impossible. My kids aren't disrespectful and that is something I can say with confidence, but they are verbal and loud at times. I like to say they get their volume from their daddy but he will deny it. If we go to a restaurant my daughter is going around the table to visit her siblings and my son is throwing food on the ground. Attending church is a whole other issue, my kids are so loved by the people there but if they talk or coo during the service we will get stares and head turns. I can feel the heat rising up my neck because we have been told to "sshhh" plenty of times. I understand it is church but we don't have a cry room like we use to and I feel like people need to be understanding that they are babies and they do make noise, and I also think to myself "weren't they ever taught not to stare" I digress, kids are kids and it is something that needs to be remembered by myself and others.
