helping hands

Taylor Facetimed me a week ago today, and an hour later I was telling my coworkers I needed to take a leave of absence to come down to AZ to lend my hands with 22-month-old Declan while Beth takes it easy and Taylor travels.

Do you have or have you had a pre-two-year-old in your life. Sometimes they’re headstrong littles whirlwinds and other times they’re still cuddly babies. Declan is no exception—though, of course, he’s an exceptional child. Just ask his daddy!

I want to know why washable markers weren’t invented 50 years ago. They put a man on the moon . . .

Here Declan is getting to know his sisters, at least their essence with a bump now and then.

So that’s the essence of my week. My mission for a time. I wouldn’t rather be anywhere else.
