So DD1 had a sleepover last night.
We had a similar situation at our Cub Scout Mass.

Mom to: Madeleine, James,
I would have asked her to stay in the pew. I don't think she would have cared, and it would have avoided any possibility of problems. You probably didn't have enough time to fully explain what was going on, and she saw it as a piece of bread, so figured she might as well take one too.
