Well, that didn’t work

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.

    Aww, I’m so sorry that you have to miss your conference! Good luck with the kids — when we signed up to have little ones in the wedding, we knew that they were not trained monkeys and that all kinds of crazy things could occur. I’m sure you’re brother-in-law and future-sister-in-law know that too! Plus, when funny things do occur, everyone kind of enjoys it anyway 😉 (except the mortified parents, I suppose?? Obviously, this is from a non-parent’s perspective!)

    Also, I wish that I could edit that last comment for the correct spelling of you’re/your. I hate that!!!

    To put your mind at ease, Heidi, you are apparently one of the 10% in the world who knows the difference between ‘your’ and ‘you’re’ and its correct usage (along with their, there, they’re, and to, too, two).

    Oh no! I’m so sorry that you’ll have to miss the conference, Erin! But I hope that having one less thing to juggle will give you time to relax, catch up, and enjoy the wedding festivities even more. Heidi’s right, by the way: people usually expect a little something unexpected with kids in weddings. So just enjoy it. I’ll look forward to hearing about it!
