I am at a funeral (my dhs grandmother's). I am currently sitting in a playroom/nursery with my kids. The funeral room is directly outside the playroom door. Would it be wrong to let my kids (3 and 1) continue to play quietly, while I go out and sit thru the funeral, even if its just for like 5 minutes. This room is 100% child proofed, i can hear everything, and my chair is directly outside the only entrance to the nursery.

I would judge you.. in a positive way.

There is nothing more inconsiderate than making small children sit through a funeral.

I would not judge you for sitting directly outside the only entrance to the nursery and watching your dhs grandmother's funeral. I am so sorry for your loss.

I'd probably judge you more for being on Cafemom during your DH's Grandmothers Funeral

I would not judge you at all. Just stay close by.

Why did you bring the kids? No I wouldn't judge you but funerals aren't for little ones.

I let my one and three year olds play at church without direct supervision for a few minutes at a time.
