I love how her little girl Kaiya, is so huggable & sweet. It was so fun to hold her and get to hear her little sentences. She would often walk over to me and put her hands up for me to hold her. Loved it!
Tuesday my aunt and my niece Sierra came for a visit and brought lunch. And for an added bonus left Sierra to spend the night. That way I had a babysitter while I took Isabella to a Dr. appt. in the afternoon. Boy, how nice is that?? And she can drive!!!! She drove us to Donovan's brothers' house for dinner last night. Doesn't she look all grown up in the drivers seat???
Sweet 3 week old Cale (our new nephew) had a diarrhea diaper that went up his back....so how lucky I was to give him a bath. He never cried once until I took him out of the water. I am so in love with this little boy!
My sister-in-law Arlene with Cale and Suzanna.
And that brings me up to today...remember the prayer request I had for a cousin, his wife, and little boy that were in China during the earthquake? They are home now. And Jenny needed a babysitter for today. So Matthew came, he is 2 1/2. Add one to my 4 and that makes 5 children for today. Good thing I had Sierra here to help. It really went so well. In fact so well I figured why not keep with my original plan to get my groceries for today. Call me insane but I needed some pretty important things like milk, bread, creamer, and cotton balls. Most importantly I had a serious cotton ball shortage. It went well through Meijer with the exception of Jack who was crying about not getting a car in the check-out. I might have threatened to take all 300 cars already at home away for 3 days, if he doesn't stop crying. And while he was trying to pull it together as to not lose the privilege of using the cars he already has, he accidentally hit his head on the cart. Now I was having a hard time determining if the tears were from the injury or just plain mad about the car he wanted. He finally pulled himself together and we were on the road again. I also made a stop to get Isabella's glasses adjusted, a stop at the gas station and the library. All this by 11:30. It is amazing how much gets done when you get up at 7:30!!! And by this time I'm thinking of never letting Sierra go home. She was the one who buckled the kids in the car seats, and unloaded the groceries for me. It was so awesome to have another (almost) adult with me all morning.
On with the quote of the day.......
This is the response I got.....
Me: Jack DO NOT plug the sinks, leave the water on and walk away.
Jack: Mom, What would happen if we plugged all the sinks, turned the water on. And then opened all the freezer doors? We would have an ice skating rink wouldn't we?
I think we should start limiting Tom & Jerry cartoons.
