Just have a quick minute to update y'all on Robby. Thanks so much for your prayers. Last night was a bit better. I fed him and then put him in the carseat. Then, Clint drove him around for about 15 minutes in the van. He finally fell asleep and slept till about 2:30am. Then, I fed him again and he slept with me in the bed till about 5:30am. After that feeding, he stayed up and pretty much cried till about 8:30am. So sad. He didn't fall asleep again till about 10:30am. He slept on my chest for about 1 1/2 hours. So, that's the story... I gotta be honest - it's been kind of a rough trip for me. I'm wiped out physically and emotionally too. The funeral was beautiful though, and my song went well. I actually brought Robby up to the podium with me and held him while I sang. He just wouldn't go to sleep and was fussy when I was not holding him. But, it actually turned out fine and it was pretty darn cute. During the little pauses, he babbled along, almost as if we were singing a duet! I am sure that Grandmama would've LOVED that!
I am realizing more and more that the main thing to this job of being a mommy of five is FLEXIBILITY. I am learning that I just can't let these little things like crying babies, lack of sleep, no naps, kids getting carsick on long rides, etc... get my feathers all ruffled. I need to keep my cool and cast my care upon the Lord. Easier said than done, though! :)
OK, gotta run and get packed. We're leaving to go home pretty soon. Hopefully, our ride home will go smoothly and no one will get sick. I can tell you one thing, I am so excited about being in my own bed tonight! (as I'm sure my kiddos are, too!)
Have a great afternoon!
