My brother's wedding was July 11. Luke was the ring bearer.
We all headed to MD for the rehearsal. Everyone dressed nicely...and attempting to behave nicely.
The moment that we arrived. Brayden screamed. He screamed some more and then more. Jeremy worked so hard to calm him. I felt like everyone there was hoping that Brayden would not be disruptive on the wedding day. Then somewhere in the midst of taking him in and out of his KidKart, his feeding tube came out (the tube from the food bag to his tube became detached). We did not notice until he was soaked. He was dripping in formula. We were only a little bit into the rehearsal and then we had the dinner.
In case you do not know me, I am a planner. I have bags for all road trips, day trips and any kind of trip...all for the just in case and things for the kids to do. Since we were leaving on vacation shortly after the wedding I cleaned out the car to have it ready to load for the trip. I took out the bag with Brayden's just in case things...like a change of clothes.
I determined not to miss a moment of my brother's wedding celebrations, prayed that Brayden would be okay in formula soaked clothes.
On to the dinner. Brayden seemed to be doing a bit better. Then the tube came loose again. Formula dripping again. I was stressed and grouchy (so was Jeremy).
Hmmm, how was the wedding day going to go?
To help with Brayden we taped those tubes together so much that I needed scissors to get it apart and we medicated him to help with whatever was bothering him.
The wedding was beautiful. Luke did great as the ring bearer. Brayden enjoyed the music and sang along, thankfully was quite when the music stopped.
