Prospective is everything right now....I'm just keeping it prospective. One day down and 4 more to go, and we made it through today without any tears. Which is big for the girls in this family. Well, I really should correct myself and say their were no tears of sadness for the missing member that had to leave on a business trip today. There were however tears for other various reasons. All common occurrences among 4 year olds and 1 year olds. For instance tears when a certain someone didn't want to wear the shirt I picked out for him. Tears when he didn't want to take a nap. Tears when another member of the family wet her pants. Which at the time I just picked her up and hauled her off to the bathroom. Thinking she needed a swat...but extending grace, because I just was not in the mood to go through all the steps. However after I got the wet stuff off....Suzy looked at me and said, "I yi yi yi yi...." (something Donovan says to her when she has an accident) and then swatted her own leg. And then repeated the phrase and swatting of herself again.
God sure has a sense of humor. God sure knows how to give me the "pick-me- up" I needed at just the right time.
