SLEEP!!!

So, I actually got a little more sleep than I usually get. With a newborn it seems as though sleep is only a figment of my imagination....sometimes it is! Anyways, I feel extremely calm and somewhat able to cope with four little boys. You wouldn't think adding one little more bundle of joy would make things that much harder......boy was I wrong! I have been asking myself quite a few times lately how much the LORD thinks I can handle. Apparently He feels as though I can handle more than I actually can. Or maybe He wants me to rely more on Him for the strength to handle my insane life instead of relying on myself. He's pretty smart! I am sure that was His intention. Well, i'm glad that He knows the reasons and will help me through this somewhat difficult and crazy time. Well, I don't know what has come over me to post this but oh well!

:) The extra sleep must have been from God, because I have no idea how you got it with a newborn, a toddler and two under the age of 7 boys!
Glad you feel rested today,
As you know...you can bring them all by anytime if you want some alone 'mom' time. :)
Anytime after 5pm. =)
Phil could probably even drive by on duty and see them through the windows!

Hey Jenn,
Great idea on reading the books to the boys. You may want to try an adapted version of Ivanhoe if you're going to be reading it out loud to them though, cause I don't think they'd understand much of the original. Like the Young Readers Classics or something, I used to LOVE those! Plus they have pictures. :O) Just a thought.

Hey, I am so glad you feel more rested today. I have been thinking about you all day, but knew it was a bad idea to call at the times I thought about it!
