peace of mind is priceless

I've been working for the last couple of months as some of you know. I am teaching a class on Tuesday and then I observe practicum students in the classrooms on Thursdays. It has been rewarding, challenging, fun, stressful, exciting, and hard. One thing that has been so wonderful is that the people who watch Lauren are absolutely wonderful and I feel completely at ease leaving her. I've realized how important it is for me that the person who watches Lauren loves her dearly. I couldn't leave her if I didn't think they would delight in her like I do. I just couldn't.

On Tuesdays, my friend Kelly watches her. Kelly has a sweet little one named Ryan and Lauren loves to go over there and play with all of his sweet toys!!! I've seen how much Kelly loves Lauren and I feel so comfortable for those hours while I am away. Thanks, Kelly!!!

Seriously, how cute are these kiddos?


On Thursdays either my Papa and Meme or my mother-in-law come to watch her. I won't complain that Lauren gets spoiled rotten because I wouldn't have it any other way. It is so obvious that Lauren is a joy to them and I love that my grandparents don't care to drive the hour and my mother-in-law doesn't care to drive two and a half hours (she stays the night and a couple of days!) just to spend quality one on one time with Lauren. She is such a blessed girl, and so am I!!!

Papa took these pics you think she is loved???

And here is one of when Bev watched her last time. Lauren loves her wagon and wanted Bev to walk her around the whole house all day long! Do you think Bev did? Of course!!!

  1. Cute Lauren!! Don't you love it that your family gets to spend time with her? I remember when my friends used to watch my kids. They grow up too fast, Jen!
