I love taking Elijah to Mass with me. I think it's important for him to know this is something we do every week unless we have a very strong reason not to. I also like watching everyone else smile at him as he smiles at them.
Usually we leave around 8:20 for 9 am Mass and I give him his morning bottle in the pew before Mass starts. My problem is what to do when I want to go to confession. Those days I usually just leave him at home with Nathan, but I hate that.
For other Catholic moms or dads who go to Mass on their own, how do you handle this situation? Is it okay to take him into the confessional with me?
