How is it?

How is it that one little tiny girl can generate as much laundry as the other 7 people in the house put together?

That is not a complaint. Again, I say, the mundane and normally frustrating tasks babies and children bring suddenly becomes a privilege when tomorrow is no guarantee. It's no guarantee for any of us, or any of our children, but it just isn't taken for granted with children we foster. Mercy (that's her official blog name, now) will have had 2 court dates, 1 doctor's appointment, 1 visitation, and 1 WIC appointment before the end of this week. I'll be wearing her sling style in the Race for the Cure Saturday, and then we leave bright and early Sunday morning for camp in Tennessee. She's a busy little bee! She's already growing and changing, and we still can't take our eyes off her!

She's going to be a little social bug before she's even a few months old! She is sooo precious and I know you are lovin' her sweet little self up!!

The laundry thing is a paradox. It doesn't seem to reverse itself until school starts. We currently go through about 900 pair of undies a day, because they can't be worn all day for some reason. Now my older boys, could literally do laundry once a semester and be happy, smell shmell.

Will be praying for safe and SANE travels.

Mercy, what a cute name! My sister had a baby today, and the laundry is going to be piling up no doubt. I was able to put his very first teeny weeny diaper on him, and his first gown. I'm in love with little Remington.
