My flights are cancelled, so I’ll be staying in Nova Scotia this weekend. I’ll miss the conference, which makes me a bit sad, but I’ll be here during the days leading up to the wedding–ones in which Sydney and I really wanted to keep things as stable as possible for the kids. So, I’ll be there when Nathaniel and Katherine practice walking down the aisle. Lisa just posted about a wedding that 2-year-old Anna was in recently, and during which she got M&Ms for her flower-girl work. Since Nathaniel doesn’t understand “helping with the wedding” or “being a big boy/girl” even if Katherine does, I think I will also offer an incentive for the kids: walk down the aisle to Dadda without fighting and he’ll give you three dates each. That should keep them happy–and keep their clothes, faces, and hands relatively clean. So, we’ll see how this goes.
