A Day in My Life

What is this?

Besides being an absurd amount of plastic toys
it is also the box that Xia threw up in last night.

And what about this?

Besides being a ridiculously over loaded and dirty washing machine,
it is also Diezel's bedding that he peed all over last night.

Good morning!
I am so grateful today.
Really I am.
Xia used to throw up almost every night at bedtime. It has been quite awhile since she has. Last night was a huge reminder of how far she has come. Wahooo! Thank you Lord for all you have done in her life.
And why am I grateful for the full washer?
Because it could be empty and Diezel could have never joined our family.
I welcome the never ending laundry.
That's the way it should be for a family of 8.

Now off to hand wash every single small plastic toy.
*Maybe I'll send some your way Donna C.*

Girl...dump all the toys in the bath tub! Sorry for the rough start to your day but you are right...what a blessing it truly is to have to clean up after the sweet babies you longed for for so long! Hugs girl!

phew, what a great perspective to hold on to! poor you, cleaning all those toys..for some reason kids never puke on the linoleum, do they? it's always on the carpet, or in the toy box..

Man I'm so behind on your blog. I guess that what happens when I leave town and then get sicko.

Looks like we're all a little sicko lately. Y'all need a sterilized clean room in the Boster's home!!!!
