Let me walk you through the experience that was my "today".
For starters, I was "supposed" to be at CFPB all day today, but a string of phone calls had me campus hopping, so by the time I made it back to CFPB 12:30 service, I had actually seen four services in 24 hours...
Amy ran ProPresenter/IMAG for the 10:30am service, and I asked her to cover the 12:30pm service. She checked on Caitlyn inbetween services in the nursery. Caitlyn was sleeping and fine, so Amy started the 12:30 service for me.
At the beginning of Eric's message, I was upstairs in the control room, working on a couple other things while sitting next to Amy when it happened... the nursery pager rang... something's wrong with Caitlyn...
Amy and I stare at each other. She starts to go to the nursery to check on Caitlyn. I tell her to stay since she was familiar with the message. I'll go check on Caitlyn.
I walked into the nursery, and Caitlyn was wailing her head off. The nursery worker gives her to me. I try to calm her down inside, but it's not working. I think "hey, I'll go sit in the Infant Room in the worship center and keep tabs on the service."
Well, the Infant Room was packed, so I decided to stand out in the lobby with Caitlyn. I was sitting in a chair, watching the message on TV, when I hear Eric say something unusual: "I'm sorry. I'm very ADD, and there's something over here making a noise."
I jump up, realizing that there was a problem onstage, and try to find someone to take this baby so I can take care of the problem onstage... long story short, Caitlyn and I ended up walking the aisle towards Eric, who was flipping switches on a bass amp. While walking up there I'm trying to think through how I am going to fix a noisy bass amp while holding my four month old daughter...
By the time we got to the front of the stage, he had resolved the issue. He saw me, and was taken back by the site of me having my daughter in the service, standing at the front of the stage (mental note Jeff: don't have a burp cloth draped over your shoulder). Eric cracks some joke about how his daughter, Eden, is better looking than Caitlyn (which we all know is a lie), and he goes back into his message.
After the service I told the camera guys that next time this happens, work me in the shot. If I'm going to be in front of the worship center, I want myBabyGirl to be on the screens.
