Mother of 5.
Jacob and I moved in to Everyday Blessings on Friday afternoon. I have 5 little boys right now. I will identify them as follows C2, J3, D3, D4, and B6. That is the first letter of their name and then age.... :)
C2 was my surprise child :) He is a very quit fellow whom I hope learns to use the toilet soon.
J3 and D4 are my two little blonde hair blue-eyed babes.....and D3is my spanish speaker.... we are truly a bilingual room. I actually have a hard time understanding him when he tries English :) B6 is almost 7 and should be going home within the next month :) Happy for him.
I am called "teacher" for some weired reason and Jacob is called "Jacob Bigger" even though we identified outselves as Ms. Rachel and Mr. Jacob.
Jacob works weekends so I did the bath and bed routine by myself and I feel empowered!
PLayDoh is a great thing for J3, D3, and D4. They did an awesome job of keeping it on the table and making me cookies and green beans.
Sunday morning I got the most terrible, horrible of flus.... The other caregivers took my little ones for a few hours and let me finish throwing up and rest. So wonderful of them.... How do you mothers do it without respite?!?!?
That night I chopse to order pizza rather than cook a meal.... great idea only it took the pizza guy like an hour and a half.. little ones don't like waiting apparently!
Right now I am at the library in Thonotosassa. We will get our computer hooked up soon enough at home. I was just having a bit of withdrawal.. not that I had time to think about it until today!!
I like my job. Im happy.Tired a bit and happy.
Thanks to Jarelle, Kim, and Lilah for the things you have sent or are sending!! I appreciate it!!
Those Bible flashcards came in handy.... we did them in Spanish and English of course :)
One other caregiver had a stillborn son 10 years ago. His name was Joseph. I love her. SHe is a wonderful person.
