I walked into the little girls’ room before bed, and found Sarah (3) and Miriam (5) giving Beth (9) a backrub. I broke into a wide grin, which did not freeze on my face, because I was NOT hearing these words:
Miriam: Do you want to take a picture of us, Mom?
Sarah: <smiling brightly and nodding>
Beth: Yeah! They popped my fingers, popped my toes, and now are massaging me…
I did not have to duck into the hallway to laugh for a minute, then come back to have a brief discussion about chiropractors and arthritis.
This did NOT remind me of the other time where all I could do was laugh.
I’m sure you can figure out that, with 9 children, I have so many helpers that we never get behind on cleaning the refrigerator. I most certainly do NOT have to bring in outside help.
