Perhaps the author doesn't worry that others are upset and distracted by her children. but I do worry about it.
That doesn't sound like the author (I've read her for a couple years and have corresponded with her). She's giving tips on juggling kids during Mass. She has a lot of experience. I'm sure she's had to stand in the back, as most of us have, swaying back and forth and praying the water works don't start again. Or stood outside. Or had time outs.
It's a tough time, and we've definitely gone through periods where my husband and I have taken turns outside. But now that our daughter has gotten the idea down, it's worth it... Just in time to start getting #2 used to it (she is just at the point where she wants to "talk" now).
Hang in there!
