Just some Tib Bits

Jon:

We're talking after school one day when Jon says, "Mommy, I don't have to go to school tomorrow!"

Me: Yes honey.
Jon: Nuh uh
Me: really?
Jon: my teacher said I don't have to go back tomorrow
Me: I don't think so
Jon: yes she did, I don't have to go to school tomorrow
Me: yes you do
Jon: Nope!

Stinker.

Destiny:

Is doing great!!! She's learning sight words!!! I'm so excited. I bet she can read a really short book soon!!! She had a slight fever today, but went right down with Motrin.

Staci:

Has had a terrible bladder infection! My poor baby. She's getting better though and only has several more days of antibiotic. She's now in her terrible, I mean her wonderful, energetic, light hearted, two's. She has more mood swings than a woman with PMS. I wonder if chocolate will help her....hmmmmm

Me:

Tired. Tired. Tired.


And loving every minute of it.
I love lack of sleep.
I love crying babies
I love dirty kitchens
I love making little lunches
I love that it takes me an hour to pick everyone up after school/work
I love little hugs and kisses at 5:45 am
I love getting up at night and watching them sleep
And I love all many many little things that happen during the day.

And Bobby:

Who else would have sat with me in the ER while Staci cried and cried for hours on end?

Who else would (try to ) clean the kitchen every night for me?

Who else would hold my hand as I go to sleep every night?

Who else can hold Destiny and make her feel that she's his whole world?

Who else can smile at his son and make the whole room light up?

Who else would have actually listened when I mentioned that three children were up for adoption?!

Having children has really changed us and our marriage, but one thing's for sure. It can make things so much better!
