Have I told you lately how cool my kids are? Here, let me give you an example:
A few weeks ago my friend (who already has a six year old and a three year old) had a new baby. A couple of weeks later, she had to have her gall bladder taken out. A week after that, her husband had to go out of the state for training for work. Ugh, bless her heart.
The boys and I have been keeping her kids for her off and on while she’s been to doctor appointments or when she’s just felt too sick to care for them. (You can think I’m really nice for doing this and all that…but really this was my way to get my hands on a sweet newborn for hours!!!!)
Through all of this…I have been so proud of our boys. I don’t know what I would do without them. They’ve been doing most of their school work without much help. Asa’s been reading to his brothers. They’ve been helping cook food. They’ve been doing laundry. They’ve been bringing me burp cloths. They’ve been doing band-aid duty.
They’ve been doing ANYTHING I’ve asked them to do. They’ve been such a help to me.
I am so proud of them.
I am going to keep them forever.
