A miracle occurreth! Y'all, nearly my whole family has come to Oz. If only Dave and Katie were here, it would be perfect. (Miss you guys!)
Whenever I get to hang out with my family, I have this urge to just lock all the doors and not go anywhere and not let anyone in--and just hang out, play cards and talk for two weeks. They are pretty much the coolest people ever. We are doing well--they've only been here a few days, and Becky and her family showed up sick, so we've been taking it easy to let them adjust and get better. Yeah, I was all--Thanks so much for showing up with swine flu. Can we just like rub my newborn all over your face now?
We are adjusting to and enjoying being a family of five. Nate has found this to be a bit of a challenge. The other day, on a ride to my beloved Ikea, Grace was crying a little in her car seat. Nate asked, "Mama, why you put Grace in the car?" Jason and I told him that Grace is part of our family, and that she goes where we go now. I could tell he's thinking, "For real? Like she's always gonna be here?" Then he said, "Mama, you know what? Grace bothers me." Why is that, buddy? "I don't wanna tell you," he said. Then he sighed. Bless his little middle child heart.
Harsh reality, y'all. It hits us all from time to time. How are things in your world?
