Daily: Reflect on 5 things for which I'm grateful. (read all 47 entries…)
My 7-month-old foster daughter

1. She is happy, healthy,and developing like she should – despite a rough start in the world.
2. She smiles at us like “Wow! It’s YOU! What wonderful thing will happen next?”
3. Every social worker who has come here has commented on how “bonded” we are to each other.
4. She cut her first tooth!
5. Her laid-back happy personality seems to fit in just right with her two-year-old sister’s hyper Type “A” energy (and is a relief for me!).

My sweet seven month-old

1. Bathtime smiles, giggles, squeals, and wiggles.

2. A sweet little tummy on which to blow “zerberts!” And say, “I ZERBERT you!”

3. Her ongoing fascination with her hands. So funny!

One more… Singing “Skidamarink a Dink a Dink” to make her smile through her tears.

My two year-old girl

1. She squinches up her face and blinks both eyes hard, in response to my winking at her. She thinks she’s winking back. She laughs because I’m laughing (no clue why) and it’s the most fun ever.

2. Watching her trade her green beans to her friend (also two)for more salmon. They are so sweet and polite to each other. Not always, but this time they were.

3. My little giggling pajama’d whirling dervish, after bath tonight. “Whoooo, this is FUN!”... famous last words right before a devastating crash that required lots of hugs, kisses, and TWO bedtime stories to remedy.

She is so awesome. I love being her mommy. It’s worth the utter exhaustion, because I know it’s only for a short time.
