*snicker* Hollie? what happened to that precious newly cleaned full bellied piece of heaven that was sleeping so beautifully? LOL!!! Yep! they can turn on a dime. hehehe
Not to mock you by any means, I've been there quite a few times - usually every day.

Poor baby just hasn't figured out that he is safe and well cared for yet. I'd lend you some of my patience, but I need all I got. We'll just have to ask the man upstairs for a little extry for ya!

I have 2 girls myself, 2 & 5. Every day I work it's hard to send the baby to somebody else's house. I know she loves it (there's a 1 & 3 year old girls there), so I deal.

I guess your career went from trying to catch the no-gooders, to raising them right and keeping them out of trouble. I think your current method of dealing with it is better. If more parents were real parents, then your former career would require far fewer employees!

BTW: I'm looking forward to 5:30 also, cause that's when I get to be with my girls again!

email's open if you want to catch it.

Hush little baby now don't you cry... Hollie, I believe God has a special place for people like you. Keep up the good work and may God bless you!
