Tonight at dinner we were talking about a very special day tomorrow....Emma Sage's Sixth Birthday.
I asked her what she wanted for her birthday.......
and she replied.
"I want a baby just like Brooke"
"Can I have Baby Brooke?" she continues.
Well, how do you answer that question....."no and no"
Since this Momma is 43....the first answer is no.....I can't have a baby like Brooke for you [although I would so love too!]......and since Brooke is AJ's baby sister, I think the second answer is a definate no.
So I reasoned with her......you get to play with Brooke five days a week.....on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.
Emma Sage replies "But I want to play with her on Saturday too!" lol!!!!
Here is the very special baby Brooke. She is just three weeks old and we are blessed that she gets to spend part of her days with us. How incredibly precious!
and I can't believe my baby is almost six years old......it seems like yesterday Emma Sage was as tiny and brand new as Miss Brooke.
I have been not feeling well.....for the first time in my life I have a tooth ache. I have been nursing it along for the last two weeks [although it has been a long time coming....I cracked it eating some Boy Scout nut mix about a year ago....then slowly the filling in it began to piece part.] Because I provide in-home childcare, I don't have the ability to make appointments during the day. The earliest apppointment I could get [calling last week] was for this upcoming Saturday [Emma Sage's big Circus Birthday party]. I thought I could continue to nurse the tooth along.....but man was I wrong. I have been in tears all day and down on my knees praying for the pain to stop. I have never, ever flet this type of pain before. I would gladly give birth instead of this pain.....I feel like I'm going to go crazy and I have the sweats and am in tears. I was able to get an emergency appointment on Thursday and Katrina is going stay home from school to assist me with the little ones I mind. I feel so bad because I can't even think straight and I had so many things I wanted to do for Emma Sage's birthday tomorrow.....but I don't think I will get them done.
I have learned my lesson........I need to take care of me [like right away after I cracked the tooth] that to leave it go.
