The Late Schedule...not a fan

Ok, I know that it doesn't sound good to complain about church, but I hate the 1:30 schedule and as of the beginning of the year we switched to the 1:30 schedule. This means that we don't get out of church until 4:30. PM... Last week I made it through sacrament and spent the rest of the time with either Aly or Brooklyn in the foyer. I come home from church completely exhausted and drained. Today I had both Aly and Brooklyn in class with me because Aly was not feeling very well and we decided it might be nice of us to keep her away from all the other nursery children. To make the situation worse Foote was asked to substitute in nursery and since he never passes up a chance to have snack time and play with toys he said he would help. Besides, everyone knows that all the kids love him, but that left me alone with both girls in class. After class I had a sister stop and say it is exhausting just watching you. (amen to that sister)

Aly's nap-time is at 11:30 and she will nap as late as 2:30 or 3:00 so waking her up before she is done sleeping at 1:00 so we can make it to church on time makes her a little monster by the end of it. Brooklyn usually takes an afternoon nap about 3:00, but since we are at church she just fights off sleep and becomes a little grouch. It would be nice if it ended there but even when we get home the girls are whiney and tired and it is to late to put them down for a nap if we want them to go to bed on time. We have a year of Sundays left and I am already counting them down. Just had to vent a little

I don't know what is worse. 1:30 or 9am. I don't know if I will ever make it before 9:30. I don't know why but it seriously takes us 2 hours to get ready for church. It is just so hard to wake up at 7 am- which is why I haven't. Good Luck.
