My first surprise today was a toddler crawling up into my lap in the middle of my scripture study. It seems it was her turn to show me how to make “K’s for Kyrie”.
She also drew this, and said “it is Grandma and Grandad, and Papa and Mama, and Mary and Alex and Kirk and Barrett and Kyrie and Tuffy and Neitzsche”.
Our next surprise was as we got ready to leave for school, and a giant crow flew into our van! It scared them to death! I have never laughed so hard! I’m thinking Birds for the next family night movie?!
After drop off, Mary and Kyrie went with me to some meetings for them… Kyrie was still writing, and put the pencil in her mouth just to wave. She is such a funny little duck!
We also got another picture of one of our books helping another child going through what we endure, and we are so glad the books are helping so many! You can see all of our books HERE, and you can also donate there to have books donated to special families who need them!
Mary and Kyrie played house at the doctor’s office while we got paperwork signed. They are so sweet together! I love their relationship and watching it evolve as they grow. It’s pretty special.
We got to say goodbye to the fish at our pediatirician’s office, crossing one more thing off our palliative care bucket list before we head to Cincinnati Children’s this weekend.
Mary finished her homework, and Kyrie took a breathing break on the scale. We got her weighed in at 22 pounds today (with her clothes on), at almost 30 months old.
I wish I could take a nap with her! But we have to get the paperwork to the attorneys, and get her to her bed, and me to work for the swing shift after a full day of appointments. We were all worn out!
Except Barrett, who was hungry and waiting for lunch!
The other three are almost ready to come home from school as I say goodbye to these three before leaving for work. Me working evenings doesn’t go as smoothly now that half of them are in school all day, and I miss them. When you have a little medically fragile one like Kyrie, you learn not to take a moment for granted and that sacrifices to be together mean everything – one battle at a time.
