Happy Birthday! I can't believe she's already 6! I remember just yesterday she was rolling around the church floors (as my daughter is having attention issues in church recently it pops in my mind often).
Completely off topic, but I'm having winter blues looking at the beach pictures. Summer, I miss you!!
Ha ha, poor Chris, then Madeleine looked relieved to hand off that wiggly bundle. Not Leonore's fault though, she was too young to be there (IMO). But it is nice, the way the Swedish royals bring the littles out.
And Dan came for the rescue.
Concerning children and church: I think they need to be introduced at a young age. Therefore I think the Swedish do it right. Better little by little than suddenly having them sit through four hour services.
Agreed re: introducing children to church services while they are young. But my mother always said 4 or 5 years was more the time, and my own experience proved her correct. My kids could sit quietly (enough) and look at a story book or play with a dolly by that age, and not be too
Edit to add: only speaking in generalities about children & church and not about Madeleine/Chris.
