As my belly grows and the vague recollection of what it entails to have a newborn again means in our day to day life becomes a bit more clear, I am sure recognizing what a gift it is to have my boys be the awesome ages they are. Not only that, but also for them to be so willing and able to help and hold their own responsibilities. And even better yet, when those responsibilities are one’s I don’t particularly want to hold. 😉 Like, putting away laundry (I’m happy to sort, wash and fold it!), putting away the dishes (I’m usually cooking breakfast when this needs to be done), and heading out into the rain or freezing temps to feed the animals. I can’t say there is never a grumble from one or two brothers, or a need for a reminder, but I’m certainly not grumbling about that because I’m too thankful.
And… I dare not say it at any more than a whisper for fear they will hear me and realize what they’ve committed to … they’ve even told me that they will change the baby’s diapers and sleep in its room when it gets a little older to help it sleep all night long.
One even asked, “Mom, is it okay if I come in to the baby’s room in the morning when it wakes up to play with it, so you can get more sleep?”
Um, yes, that would be just fine I think!
Happy Tuesday, Friends! ♥
