I have been having this conversation with ladies at church. The topic is how to keep the kids butt in the pew for an hour. One of our tools is a picture book published by our church. For sacrament we pull that puppy out with #6 on our laps and whisper about the pictures. I know, not exactly silent but way better than the alternative.

Mom stifles her giggles.

Her response: Dat Isaac.
I stifle my giggle again.

Her response? MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!! Yelled as loud as she could.
Mom laughed out loud.
