I just heard from a dear friend at church that some of the ladies at church make (snidish?) comments when I don't go to prayer meeting that my husband is "there again with the kids!". I understand that she doesn't want to be involved, which means she doesn't want to tell me who is questioning my mothering. She said she thinks some people believe I am slack in my mothering because of this. Of course these people don't know my reasons for not being there.
He takes them there often because he insists on it. During the separation he insisted on seeing them nightly after his lawyer told him to, and took them to church even if it was to stash them in the nursery, often keeping them out until 10:00 .
