My friend died yesterday. The funeral is this coming Sunday. I am also in labor right now, and assuming this baby is born today, he will only be 3 days old the day of the funeral. I really want to go to say goodbye and to show my support and love for her daughter and the rest of the family, but I'm worried that my baby would become and attention grabber. Our whole church family will likely be there, and since I'm a one of the pastor's wife I fear that people will be oggling over me and the baby too much for a funeral. I will feel terrible if I don't go though. The deceased has been a wonderful friend to us. She just gave us her car when ours was written-off in an accident last month, and when we had no place to live for a week and half she invited us to stay with her as long as we needed and she has just been such a wonderful blessing to me and my family. But is it a stupid idea to take a newborn to a funeral assuming I am not too worn out to go? I can't leave the baby with anyone....
