Have you ever been left alone to nap and woken up by an 8 year old grinning with excitement telling you that he has a big surprise?
I dozed off from exhaustion while sitting with them in the living room and when I woke up, Voila! He cleaned the entire kitchen/dining room with a solicited help from his 5 year old brother. Their 18 month old sister laying on the couch while snacking on a bowl of cheerios. She was happily watching a baby video that her big brother popped in for her.
Yes, I do feel terrible dozing off on them. But it happened, and I'm glad it happened when my firstborn was there to take over for me even for just a little bit.
Thank you for being so amazing Christian! Love, Mama.
