Hundreds of hurting people visit here every day, most of whom are searching for comfort after loss. Please reach out for emotional support as you begin the healing process. Be patient with yourself. Allow yourself to grieve. Let it out. May God be with you.

Big sister knows how to give little sister a fun time. C10 set up the doll bathtub complete with waterbaby, soap and towels all on the kitchen floor. The Baby (doll) was an angel, but the Mommy (C1) got a little drenched. Waterplay is so much fun for a one-year-old… Had a fun afternoon snowshoeing with a lovely homeschooling family…

B13 just did a geography quiz identifying ALL the countries in the world without error in less than
seven six minutes. For fun! Not school.

My 10yo daughter made lunch entirely yesterday, and one of my sons made supper today. YAY! I would rather do dishes than cook. (The hardest part is thinking of what to have – although living in a third world country on rice-alone would fix that.) Happy Valentine’s Day!

One of my most treasured parts of mothering is something I have experienced well over 14,000 times. And that is, having my baby fall asleep nursing in my arms. I can’t emphasize this rewarding and satisfying feeling enough. I encourage you to embrace your child and ignore those who tell you to let your baby cry-it-out or self-soothe.

We got to see my baby niece on the webcam for the first time yesterday. C1 said, “Baby… Baby…” and even repeated the baby’s name.

C10 was watching America’s Funniest Home Videos tonight. She backed it up to show me a mother talking to her little girl, “You going to put your toy in your cage?” (clearly referring to a crib) The child replied, “Yes, ma’am.” Then the mother repeated, “You going to put your toy in your cage, er, your crib?”

I bought two boxes of size 6 Huggies on clearance today, saving me $54.22 off the regular price!!! That doesn’t happen every day! The diaper company changed the packaging, and the grocery store wanted to get rid of the old style! I wish I could have bought more, but there were only two boxes left.

I just turned on a show for C1. She watched for a few minutes, then came over to her toy basket, dumped out all the toys, carried the empty basket over to the TV, turned it upside-down and sat down.

Amazing. We went snowshoeing and had art lessons two days in a row.
