Just to let all of you know things have been way crazy lately! We didn't do the surgery yesterday for a few reasons: 1) Child care fell through 2)The "fear of the knife" thing 3)Well I'm not gonna go into this one
So, what did I do instead? I took Maggie to the ER at 8am to have some glass fished out of her knee and a couple of stitches put in! She knelt down on a light bulb in the cleaning closet...OUCH!
The reason I even mentioned this is because I thought it was absolutely hilarious that her lullaby of choice was not "Twinkle Twinkle Little Star"! No she prefers a much more mature genre' and quieted down ONLY when I was singing the "Yoda" song!
That's right, she screamed her little heart out until I started singing it. Then she even smiled and sung along for a couple of seconds "Ya, ya, ya....." The doctor was trying so hard not to laugh that he had to stop stitching because his body was shaking! Once he composed himself he told me that I had the cutest little girl that he had ever seen, and she would be one of those patients he'd remember years from now! Seriously!
- I am a 29-ish yr old married mother of 8. My family is my life and I wouldn't have it any other way. My darling husband is my very best friend and together we are raising 8 of the best kids in the world! They are Rose(12) Sarah(12) Ammon(10) Malachi(8) Gabriel(7) Hannah(5) Maggie(4) and Abbie(3) We currently own 2 dogs, 1 bird, 5 chinchillas, 1,000,000 rabbits, 1 cat, 4.5 horses, and one ferret. We just purchased a home that is definately a "fixer-upper", with land and room for the kids to roam. Our goal is to run a mostly self sustaining farm and live in peace as we grow as a strong family unit. We have seen our fair share of hardships, but we are thankful for the many blessings the Lord gives us on a regular basis!
