It has taken a Village to help take care of Davy. Seriously, I've needed a Village. I could not be with my baby every day if it weren't for my amazing friends and family. These Ladies(my sisters) left there families for a week to be in my home to take care of my family. They are now coming back for round 2. All of them have helped out in different ways while they were here.
This is Is my mom. She is coming for a third time this week. She is a very crafty lady. She came right when Max had a school project due, it was perfect timing. She also had fun things planned, like making homemade doughnuts or cookies. Not to mention all the cute hats and flowers she made for Davy.
This is my sister Jennie. She's a school teacher, so I knew the homework would be done and done right. She is also very good at organizing. Her and Beth(my other sister) reorganized my whole garage. Immediately after they had an intervention about my hoarding issues. Apparently I am a craft hoarder. They made me swear not to buy another piece of fabric until I use what I have(I crossed my fingers though.) She also brought her 2 kids, so my boys were in heaven playing with their cousins.
Then there was my oldest sister, Cathy. I got 2 for the price of one here. She brought her husband, Dale. Dale fixed every random broken thing in my house and even installed a doggie door for Charlie(and Harper). She was here during spring break, so she planned a bunch of fun things for the boys to do. The best part was that she would text me pictures so I could see what they were up to during the day.
After Cathy came Terri. Terri was my comic relief. She always makes me laugh. Which during times like these it's good to have a laugh. She always had the house nice and clean. And Harper really started to love her. He was calling her wam-ma.
Now the next 2 ladies live close by me. So while they didn't stay in my house, they have been a huge help to me. They have been my babysitting organizers, meal bringers, fill- in babysitters and call me daily to see how everyone is doing. I don't know how we would get through this hard time without family. I know I could never thank them enough for what they have done for us.
My sister Beth and my SIL Amber.
