My Sister Left

Kim (and Addi) left this morning to drive back to Utah. I asked her if she could stay forever. She couldn't.
Now I have no one to hold baby so I can take a shower. Obviously I will still manage a way to shower, but my point is, that I could shower in peace, knowing that if baby fussed (or turned blue from lack of oxygen), that someone was there to see him and take care of him.
I have to start doing laundry again...loading the dishwasher again....getting the kids ready for school errands and do grocery shopping with all the kids again...
In short, the honeymoon is over. I need to learn to manage the house again, and be a parent to 5 kids, one of whom is not just a regular newborn, but one that could go from good to bad in a matter of seconds, as we discovered in the hospital. Added to that, this week is the last week of school before a 3 WEEK HOLIDAY VACATION. 3 weeks home from school. Sigh.

Kim, are you sure you can't stay forever?

Hang in can do it! You have a lot of friends that are just one phone call away if you need anything.

I know what you mean, when my sister left from her visit when William was born I felt a little lost she had done almost every thing for my family for 5 weeks. Dale went back to work and I was left on my own to cope with every thing, it was hard but with my close friends I made it.. Also trust in our Heavenly Father I know it is scary but he will prompt, guide and lead you to know Kimbles needs and warn you if somethings a miss while showering.
I love you!!

Wish I was there to hold Kimbel while you take your shower.

I was sorry to leave! It was bittersweet.

I will miss Georgie giving hugs that are so big you think your head will POP off!

I will miss Kami and what a good helper she is.

I will totally miss all of Kolby's faces he makes.

I will miss Keaton playing so well with Addason.

Most of all I will miss being with my BFF and sharing in the joy of baby Kimble. Thanks for the memories!
