Maybe it is my mistake - insisting that the kids attend church with us even as babies/toddlers. My eldest son, now 28, embarrassed us on at least three occasions: He had problems with his adenoids and because of that he snored very loudly. So being bored in church during the evening service, he would sometimes fall asleep and start a round of ear-shattering snoring! If shaken or jabbed to wake him up, he would scream "Ouch!" , which made matters worse.
My kids were also keen to handle the collection dish that was send around in church and one evening my son dropped the dish with coins scattering all over the place. My face was so red!
And of course there was the time he farted loudly, the sound ringing through the quiet church. I was just aware of a few people around us giggling softly.
