New opportunity


I always felt that it as my right of passage to be able to enjoy the time when all of my children would be in school. I would have the time to go to the gym, the grocery, run my errands sans children, but I am feeling my heart strings being tugged a little to tightly. My nest is empty, and it feels unnatural.

So, when the opportunity arose, and I jumped even before consulting Richard to watch this little beauty. It is pure joy to have her in my home for the few hours that she is with me. I get to once again rock a sleeping baby in my arms. Yippee!

I watched a couple of babies while in med school and it helped us survive. I had play money.

She is a cutie.

You're so much nicer than me. I can't imagine wanted to fill my empty nest with someone else's baby (no matter how cute she is). I'm loving my empty, clean nest!

Even sweeter for her mother who gets to leave her daughter with a loving and willing mother. Win/win for sure.

Great idea! I think it will be hard once all my kiddos are in school. Have fun!

I am so new to the blogging thing. Katy was telling me "everybody does it". So I got on, and was skimming through everyone's blogs. Imagine my suprise and delight when I saw this! I cried! I know she is in wonderful hands. I couldn't imagine a more loving, sweet mother to watch over my Shelby. Thank you!
