I don't write often enough here about my parents and how wonderful they are. They do so much for us. They saved me today by watching Delaney all morning so I could work at a nearby coffee house. They did the same for me last week and they do it all the time, watching her whenever I need them to, without asking for anything in return. They feed her breakfast, make her lunch, play with her and keep her happy and safe while I go to doctor's appointments, have lunch with the mamas and work on no-school days.
Roger's mom ("Wizzerbelle") who unfortunately doesn't live near us, does more than her fair share too. She just surprised us with a contribution she said was for our "new baby fund" and she sends Delaney cards and books and clothes when she sees things that she knows Delaney will love. She and Delaney talk on the phone all the time. I know she wishes she could see Delaney more often and it's hard for her that we live so far away. I wish that wasn't the case and that all of our family lived in the same city. But she does a wonderful job of letting us know how much she loves us and how much she cares.
I only hope that when Big Brother, Big Sis, Delaney and new baby are grown we're able to support them and do all of the things for them that our parents have done for us. As their parents it will be our privilege.
