Relief Society Activity
I say "helped" loosely, because when the girls and I showed up to help set up, it was pretty much a disaster. Lynlee, normally so easy-going and adaptable, was constipated and not feeling well and clingy. I held all 27 pounds of her the whole time. Ellie, not very adaptable and needing time to warm up to any new situation, had a hard time and cried and clung to my leg.
So, I am holding my gorgeous and heavy baby in my left arm while trying to put on tablecloths/iron tablecloths/move baby chairs out of the room, while Ellie is crying and hanging on to my leg.
It was awesome.
I eventually got Ellie settled, thanks to snacks and a new friend Dana, and Snow White on Catherine's phone. That lasted about 20 minutes, and then I gave up and left.
The good news is that the activity was really fun,and it looked amazing when I got back there that night! A yummy dinner and fun games, good company and nice ambiance made for a perfect night.
