Children vs Church Part 2

We have success! Little Dude was an ANGEL at church today. He was sweet and quiet, he prayed, he looked at his book, he stood and sat when he was supposed to AND when a nearby kid tried to get him to play, Little Dude ignored him. Oh I was so proud.

So, it seems that after last week, we have had a break through. I'm sure we still have some outbreaks in our future, but gosh, it was so nice to see that our Kevin Leman style discipline had finally gotten through to him.

After Mass, Little Dude got even more positive reinforcement by getting to play and eat a doughnut with all the other families after church, and oh my goodness, he was so proud of himself for earning a doughnut.

And we are super proud of him, too.

Hooray! I was wondering how church would end up for you guys! I laughed myself silly reading about all the church drama....I'm totally coming to you for discipline ideas when we have kids :)
