which by the way has been so stinkin hard
I have found I am able to handle the days adventures if I start my morning quietly - time spent in the word, a cup of coffee without interruption and getting out my pajamas before she is up makes a world of difference.
I also get to hear Florences chatter to her stuffed animals and to Mercy -who is sharing a room with Florence and kindly puts up with a great deal.
Recently I heard from Florence:
I hear the birds!
Mercy! I hear the birds singing...
Do you hear them Mercy?
Auntie Mercy! Do you hear the birds??!
No response from Mercy.
I decided that it might be a good idea to get my girl up out of bed before her exuberance for something beautiful disrupted Mercy's sleep any further.
