After the doctor appointment she stayed for a while so that I could cuddle her precious baby. It was a great visit, I got to hold a baby, my kids were entertained, we all ate lunch together (thanks to her making a little stop on the way home) ... it was all good.
Then I received this message from her later that day:
So if I was the mother of only one child...I would have thought that play date was disasterous (sp?)! ;o) I would have been so embarrassed that
1) my child hit your child on the head and made him bleed
2) my child peed on your bathroom floor
3) my child let your dog out
4) my children destroyed some other part of your house without us knowing
But....I am now the mother of 4 and I enjoyed our visit instead and was not embarrassed by my beautiful crazies!
Thanks for having us!"
I guess that just sums it ALL up ... you just really seem to accept a certain amount of chaos when there are lots of little ones around.
And that is just another day in MY paradise!
