First time Swinger

Tuesday, May 26, 2009

We tried Darbi out in her swing today for the first time. It is a loaner and used to be my 12 year old cousin's swing when he was a babe. It was NOT a good experience for her. It took a few minutes and she calmed down and even took a quick 15 minute nap in it. We'll try it again maybe because I really want her to like this thing.

I was thinking the other day, "When I am a mom there is no way I am gonna buy all that stuff people always get. All the toys and special baby use items." Then I remembered the swing. The (sometimes) mom-life/sanity saver. I remember when I was nannying it was most helpful.

P.s. Darbi's hair? So cute and wispy. Loves it, Audrey Periwinkle.

Audrey, I know this sounds so cliche, but I have been thinking about you soooo much. You have constantly been on my mind. I'm glad to see you guys had such an enjoyable weekend. Good job on packing up allllllll your stuff! I remember what that's like. Part of me misses it... well, mostly the baby :).

I have been wanting to come over SO bad. I am so concerned for you... I remember being utterly exhausted... and that doesn't even explain how tired I was. My body was ACHING for a nap. It sounds like you and Clint have things worked out pretty well, but please know I would LOVE to help you in any way.

Can I stop in sometime? Bring you some movies? I also have a bouncer thing that we used for Mercy. You're welcome to borrow it. I have fond memories of it. We also have a really nice swing you're welcome to use.

I also wanted to tell you about "Kids on the Move"... it's FREE to those who qualify (I think you have to make over $30,000.00 annually to pay anything and then if you make more than that, it's like $10.00 per month. They provide nursing, physical therapy, occupational therapy, social work, speech therapy, deaf/blind therapies, etc. etc. It's a really amazing program and it's made ESPECIALLY for cute kids who are compromised in one way or another. It's totally worth it.

Anyway, I know I'm throwing a lot at you. I have this habit of being overwhelming. Sorry. :)

I'm gonna give you a call this week. I hope you're doing well. Truly. I think about you all the time. You're in my prayers.
