My sisters were in town all last week along with my cute niece, feeding me, cleaning the house, taking care of the kids, playing games, initiating crafts, giving hugs and in all other ways reminding Laylee and Magoo what it’s like to have a fully functional mom and reminding me what it’s like to have family close by. Then they got in their car and drove 14 hours back home. Darn those ship-abandoning do-gooders.

They even kept the kids overnight so Dan and I could get away to the Salish Lodge for some posh relaxation time. I loved having them, the giggling, the love and care, the female energy in the house right at a time when Dan is working crazy hours and my pregnancy sickness is having a regrettable resurgence.

I really needed them. I miss them so much already. I want my girls back!

    Sisterhood is a gift! I’m so glad you had a chance to be together. It always makes me happy when I see you all enjoying and nurturing each other. It’s one of motherhood’s great payoffs.

    I’m already planning the next trip back! I love you!

    PS Did my Nanny McPhee routine work over the phone last night, or no?

    I am so thankful for your wonderful sisters, too. I’m so glad you had that. I have it too, and I’m so thankful for my sisters, as well. Daughters without sisters are deprived, indeed. They are like anchors in the storms of life. I’m sorry about the distance. Hmm …maybe you should move a little closer to them. Hehehe. 🙂

    my mother would agree with your mother.
    Your sisters are wonderful.
    It’s so much fun to help take care of a sister, esp when there is a new baby you get to cuddle!
