I haven’t been able to post as much recently. And many of you kindly drop me emails, texts, and comments asking how our family is coping with our precious little Becky.
Well, consider the following words that I have actually spoken during the last two weeks.
Who left their toothbrush in the shower?
No, I don’t have time to climb a tree and free your drone.
Johnny, come get your golf club out of the dishwasher.
Fish don’t usually float on their backs. I think we’ve lost Ferdinand.
Yes, I know what happens when you blow in a baby’s face. Now, knock it off.
Why are there teeth marks on my lip balm?
Who drew on the baby?
It has been a busy two weeks. Remote learning for 5 children, 7 dental appointments, 5 eye doctor appointments, 2 pediatrician visits, 1 cardiology follow-up, 1 speech therapy evaluation, 5 trips to the airport, a high school entrance exam, and 1 vet visit. I could be the poster child for Google Calendar. I was so grateful to have frozen tuna fish casserole, spaghetti and meatballs, and chicken curry to thaw for dinners. Thanks Mom and Dad!
So, how is our family doing? Judge for yourself.
I’d like to blame the chaos and the golf club in the dishwasher on Becky. But, if I’m being perfectly honest, it’s par for the course.
