You know the old African proverb...
"It takes a village to raise a child."
Well, I believe it.
I don't care how wonderful of a mother you might be, you will always need help.
There will be someone who can teach your child
something new and exciting that maybe you didn't know.
There will be someone who can comfort your child at school while you are away.
There will be someone to help them open their juice box or feed them bite after bite of yogurt.
There will be someone to watch them and cuddle them to sleep while you step out.
There will be someone who might teach them a new song or how to play the villion.
They might help them tie their shoes, cheer them on, or be their friend.
There are so many wonderful people that are instrumental in my children's lives.
I feel so blessed to know that I have such a wonderful "village" of people surrounding and supporting them. (and me :)
Today I was so excited to have Bubba's Ms. sherill, HIS aide from school, stop by.
I say HIS aide because he is VERY protective over her and doesn't like to share..wink!!
These two have a very special bond.
I can't explain in words how grateful I am to know that he has someone
that loves him so much watching over him at school.
He was SOO excited to see her and held on tight!!!
When we switched schools we did it for the teacher, who is amazing, BUT
I had no idea that we would hit the jackpot with such an amazing friend!!!
Ms. Sherill brought Bubba this sweet gift.
He sings and vibrates and Bubba LOVES it.
He fell asleep with it on his ear tonight.
I would go to take it away and he would stur and I would have to push it again.
This is another special angel that we have in our lives, Granny K.
My kid's LOVE their Granny K and have "adopted" her.
I had an apt. for Bubba today and wasn't going to be able to take Regan to ballet.
When I told her ... she cried.
So, I got on the phone and Granny K happily agreed to take Regan to her class.
Regan even got ice cream after!!!!
My heart is FULL tonight as I think about all of the amazing
people that love my children so much and are there for them.
They are so lucky.... They are so blessed.
I am so lucky.... I am so blessed!!
