Me, Panic? No!

I am panicking tonight. I normally try not to let stress of the unknown get to me, but tonight it is. I offered to keep my friend's youngest 2 children (ages 11 months and 2 1/2) for her tomorrow because her husband is having back surgery. I know what it's like to not have family nearby to help with childcare, and I didn't want her to not be with him at the hospital because of lack of childcare.

So. . .

I am keeping them for her. No big deal.

Except the baby doesn't like to take a bottle (sound familiar?) and doesn't care for food too well.

And his surgery is in Charlotte.

And he has to be at the hospital by 5AM.

Yes, you read correctly. I am getting her children at 4:30AM.

I just pray they go right back to sleep! I've been up since 4:20 this morning because of my own children.

I know God's grace is sufficient, and I am thankful I am able to help her out. Just pray for my sanity tomorrow as I care for a 9 month old, 11 month old, two 2 1/2 year olds, and 4 year old.

Th can change diapers, right?

Good luck! At least you will be able to return 2 of them at the end of the day! I wish I lived closer, I would offer my assistance. I love babies! I will be thinking of you tomorrow while I sit here childless!
