    Sounds like a LOT of work to me!!! … But I bet the kids make it worth it. 🙂

    5 AM– way too early to get up. I roll out of bed at 9:30 AM. I am up at 3 AM to feed the baby but fortunately she goes right back to sleep until her mom gets her at 6 AM.

    The kids must be worth it though. Until Lilah I had forgotten how wonderful kids are.

    I haven’t been around lately but I seem to be having a little time on my hands now that Lilah is getting bigger.

    Don’t you just love numbers!
    I feel your pain… I get up at 5am but I am out the door at 6:30am! The joys of motherhood!

    God Bless you, my dear.
    If only the world knew how much you are truly needed.
