Thank God for Granny's!

Well good morning!! As you see I didn't get to really post anything yesterday except for the Kari Jobe song, which I love!! I pray you got a chance to view it, if not, check it out. I am so excited today!! I get a few hours of quiet time, thanks to my wonderful mother. Trying to make the most of it. There is so much I can do, wash clothes, dishes, cook. Or just rest! I love my littlest sweet pea, but the toddler side of her is shining ever so brightly! LOL   She doesn't like those long naps anymore, well she likes them in my arms instead of her bed, and after a brief nap last night, and lots of tossing and turning we didn't get back to sleep until 3am! But thank God I wasn't too sleepy this morning, well no more than usual. So I am pretty excited to be able to do nothing for awhile. I feel bad complaining, I know so many women who long to have children, or who have lost children, so I really shouldn't complain. I almost felt like a bad mommy for getting excited, and I do miss her, but I forgot what it was like to have a little one around. She may be small but she is quick!! Those little legs get around quickly and those lungs are really strong!! LOL  For those of you that haven't seen my sweets before, here she is:

Isn't she adorable!! But see that look, that's the "I know I am doing something I am not supposed to but you are too busy taking a picture of me to care!!" So I am really enjoying my quiet time. It's weird not to hear the sounds of Little Bill, and Yo Gabba Gabba, but it's a good weird. I gladly traded an unplanned date night with my hubby Saturday for a few hours of me time!! Don't tell Mark, though!  We can't have granny burnout so I had to make a choice!  :-) Well I guess that's it for the time being. God is good, and I love all my babies, but every now and then I see you need a little time for yourself. Speaking of that I am heading out, that time flies really fast!!  Have a blessed day everyone. I will probably post later, so stay tuned!

Nikki, I am really enjoying your posts. I do make a point to visit everyday.
So glad that you have the opportunity to get probably some much needed rest. You should not feel guilty about that. Rest is needed by all. Jesus did rest too you know!
Your baby is so pretty. Enjoy "your" day.

You know, it has been many years since I have heard the patter of little tiny feet in my home, I now hear the noise of size 16 shoes...definately not tiny feet, big feet! But I do remember when I was a stay at home mom with them, and I remember how many times people asked me if I was employed and I would say no, I am a homemaker. But as I look back, thatwas full-time work! People often have the mistaken idea that all moms do is sit around and watch TV all day-NOT!
So enjoy your time, and don't feel guilty, and do something good for you!
