*sniffle* - Karen's Musings
Random Rambling
I hab a code. It's getting better, but I'm still not loving the sniffling. I missed work on Thursday, but muddled through Friday and got progressively better through the weekend, though I still feel like I was punched in the nose. Corrine so eloquently said yesterday: "You sound like something's living in your sinuses." Yeah. Yuck.

We had a quiet, intimate shabbos. Just Seth, me, and the monster. Julian went to shul with Seth Friday night and they were evicted because Julian was getting on someone's nerves. I wouldn't have thought that person was out of line except that AFTER Seth acquiesed and took Julian out of the shul, the man felt the need to follow Seth out and give him a lecture about how inappropriate it was for Seth to choose to bring Julian. Whatever. There's no way to teach Julian to behave appropriately in shul without exposing him to shul. Argh.

Yesterday, Seth and I cleared out the living room and dining room so that they can be painted this week. Painting starts today. WHOO HOO!

That is all for now. Time to get the boy ready for school.

People who complain about children in shul piss me off. As you say, there's no way to teach them better without exposing them to the experience. Grrr.

Agree with Psu_Jedi. Also, given how kids behave in our shul, I find this really bizzare. How many times have we had kids swinging off the $#@! bima.

I don't believe in letting kids run wild in shul during davening (as everyone who has heard me disciplining Aaron knows), but most parents handle this responsibly. Any kid can suddenly act up. Once Seth took Julian outside, the matter was settled.

Good luck on the painting.

As a non-parent who sometimes bemoans the lack of parental responsibility in the world today, let me say that I agree with osewalrus and psu_jedi here. Seth did the responsible thing and that should have ended the matter.

It seems there's always someone around to point out what other people are doing wrong. I've gotten complaints about my kids in shul, too, and I've been told on two different occasions that it's inappropriate to daaven in a New York City subway. *shrug*

Kids belong in shul. If they misbehave, of course they must be removed from the service so they aren't disturbing others, but for goodness' sakes! Children aren't statues! They have movable parts and they make noises!

That guy was totally out of line. Besides, what kind of person doesn't support raising a child in prayerful enviroment?

Oh yeah, fail to involve the next generation in what you hold dear and hope to perpetuate? Not so bright.

Next time have Seth bring a Mr. Yuck sticker to calmly place on his lapel.

I'm looking forward to seeing the new paint sometime!

*snicker* The Mr. Yuck idea is excellent!

Whenever kids act up in shul, I just remember that about 60 years ago, there were certain people who wanted to make sure that there would be no more Jewish children, EVER, and they came very close to succeeding.

Loud kids in shul? Thank G-d that there are Jewish kids in this world at all, noisy or otherwise.

People need to look at the big picture, and not just get stuck in their own selfish little world.
