Long week

It has been a very long week. I have been in Phoenix since Sunday, August 30th taking care of my 1 month old niece, Lisanna. My sister's son, Tahi, who is the same age as Presley, had surgery at Phoenix Children's Hospital on Tuesday. Since there was no one to watch Lisanna the week, I volunteered to come and take care of her. She is so darn cute, but when you aren't used to waking up 2 times in the middle of the night, it is TOUGH. So, needless to say, I am not thinking of having a baby anytime soon. I like having an almost 3 year old that can dress herself, can potty on the toilet and can feed herself. It is really nice. No diaper bags or bottles to fix. I have been away from my family and I miss them so much. I am grateful for a husband that let me come and he took care of the kids the week. Also, thanks to my wonderful friends Buffie and Penny for picking my kids up from their activities after school and getting them home. Great friends make leaving a lot easier. Especially thanks to Buffie for driving my son back and forth because he can't remember what activities he need to go to. Living out in Edgewood is great because of friends like her. Presley and I will fly home tomorrow and I am so excited to see my family. By the way, Tahi got out of the hospital today and we are all excited he is doing so much better.
