Needing Help

IMG_0214

 

I am nearing the end of what was definitely the easiest of my 3 pregnancies, however; the end is the most uncomfortable and high risk of them all.  I am on semi-bedrest and in these last few weeks have created a patchwork of caregivers to assist me with the girls.  It eases the lifting, the neediness of Mom and gives me the little bit of extra energy that I need especially at the end of the day.  Tonight, we started with two tweens who live a few doors away.  They are a brother and sister team who will come in the evenings when Matt is not here to help me with dinner, evening entertainment and putting the girls to bed.  What a help!  Rebecca goes to Ellie’s school and is a sweetheart.  She learned how to change a diaper and then sat and read several books on Ellie’s bed.  She was animated and engaged with the girls.  I just hope over the weeks to come Rebecca keeps the upper hand with my girls because when Rebecca took a brief pause in her reading, Ellie was right on her with a very low tone, “Keep reading.”

  1. Dear Christine,
    I guess I didn’t realize how full your hands are right now with your third child on the way. Your posts about your precious girls are so delightful to read. Take good care of yourself. Sending many blessings your way.
