God is Kind

Today: Nigel said "please". And "thank you". With a smile. After two hours spent screaming except when she was in my arms, Anna slept FOR TWO HOURS and woke happy and didn't need to be in my arms for a whole, entire HOUR! That's three straight hours of peace. :-) Malli came in snuffling but quiet and didn't scream once the entire afternoon and moreover chattered happily to me while fingerpainting FOR AN HOUR. This morning Timmy's mother phoned to tell me that she was staying home today and keeping him with her. (Not that Timmy is any trouble AT ALL, blessings be upon his little bald head, but one less baby is that much less work. On a Friday, no less!) Thanks be. I am grateful.

Hooray! Sounds like a good day.

We had to resort to the pacifier a bit more than we like tonight, but oh well.
