People baptize babies. That’s just why they do. So when you decide to baptize your 7 and 4 year old in the same year, on the same day you run into roadblocks. And not just one. We had to beg and plead and organize and rearrange – only to end up with a beautiful day, a church all to ourselves, surrounded by loved ones on a beautiful day in May.
And then, after asking them to sit and smile and stay clean for hours…The boy was officially off duty. I can’t say I blame him.
