A hundred years from now it will not matter what my bank account was, the sort of house I lived in, or the kind of car I drove...but the world may be different because I was important in the life of a child. --Forest E. Witcraft

Going Well So Far

The last couple of days have been incredibly busy, but all in all, we are doing well.  The kids love little "Precious" already.  She has to be the best baby in the world I've ever cared for!  Come to think of it, maybe that does make her the best baby in the world!

May loves to help and has been wonderful.  Wanting to hold or feed Precious is a great motivator, too!

Buddy seems to be in awe.  He doesn't want to miss anything.  Unfortunately, that means he hasn't slept very well.  But, tonight he got to bed early. 

BB seems to be adjusting.  He went and got a doll carrier, after Precious was put in her carseat.  BB will also offer a blanket to cover Precious.  So far we are able to pay him enough attention to keep him satisfied.

Sweets called tonight, but she doesn't know about Precious yet.  Since I don't know if she is coming this weekend, I didn't want her to get upset.  She will be surprised when she does get here!

Miss M has been a lifesaver!  She is wonderful with Precious, and BB, and all the kids!  Last night she spent the night to care for Precious so I could sleep through.  As a result, I'm feeling good!

One of my classes was canceled on Monday, so that block of time allowed me to get my homework done for this week.  The kids' church choir was also canceled tonight, so that gave us some extra time as well.  Finally, I have a friend willing to come over tomorrow night and hold Precious.  Every little bit helps. 

I hear all the time "How do you do it?"  Maybe someday I will write about that.  For now, I'll just say that I believe if you are willing and doing something good in God's eyes, He will make sure you can "do it"!
