I don't want to talk about it.



I know, I know. Its been a long time. We've been infested with colds, infections, and pink eye. Someone needs to carpet bomb our house. I really don't want to go into what the last three weeks have felt like. I don't want to remember the walks in the backyard in the middle of the night to get Phoebe to breath normally, I don't want to discuss hundreds of filled diarrhea diapers I've changed. I have no need to share with you the almost impossible task of eye drops three times daily for three children and one adult. I'd rather be silent about boxes of tissue we have used on snotty babies. Instead I'd rather talk about SPRING. Whatever magic happens when spring arrives and bakes all the germs and lawn mower start up and screen doors let fresh smells in stale houses. I am sooo ready for it.

Hang in there Becca...You are a good Mom!! I still look back on a 3 week stomach flu when my dudes were babies (ages 2 and 6 months) in angst...Yet, you still win with the three kids and the twins factor. You are WOMAN!!

You'll never look back on these few weeks of sickness fondly, but YOU ARE DOING AN INCREDIBLE JOB mothering your babies. It is a thankless job (gosh I'm depressing), so I'll thank you on behalf of your kids..Thanks for being an incredible MOM. Your kids are going to be incredible people of God one day, because of your sacrafice. Love You, cheers to SPRING!!! Jenny

I have just one and almost can't keep it together. Talk to me about the walks with Phoebe - my Daniel is not breathing right either. Bless you for all you are doing. You are the Mom of the Year in my book!

So I guess I shouldn't have harrased you for pictures of the babies? Darnit! I'm missing my sensitity chip. You can blame it on the pregnancy...trust me, I blame everything else on it! Love you all and hope you're enjoying the start of Spring!!!! Stace
