I should pay more attention to the pastor

Sunday afternoon is traditionally a time for the Christian demographic to reflect on what they learned earlier that day in service. 

And for napping.

Friends, I couldn't accomplish either of those today.  Not even the nap, and especially not the "Godly reflection."  Why?  Because not one, not two, but THREE infants were wearing these this morning:
To make matters worse, one of them had pierced ears.

Ridiculous. 

Don't get me wrong, I am pro-fashion.  But this is just exploitation to the max.  It's a cute idea in theory, but if your child is too small to sit up on her own, you should probably wait a few years before you begin weighing down your little bundle with gratuitous accessories. 

Plus if you start her off now, where will the fun be in trying on her grandmothers black pumps and pearls later on in life?  Is nothing sacred?

Amen to that. And please put them in the nursery! So we aren't distracted from the message> i'm just saying.

Haha, I actually ADORE looking at babies during the service. I'm so A.D.D. it's very rare that I ever pay attention otherwise.

But the headbands were just a little too much :)
