As some of you know I have been staying at my brothers house helping out with my Nephew Drake while my brother recoups from a small surgery.
Also, as most of you know, I do not have any children of my own, so I was ill prepared to take on this "job" I was asked to do. lol
I have been at it for about 4 days now. Changing diapers, bathing, feeding, and most of all chasing him around as he is one and a half. Playing, watching TV, and reading is what I now spend my time doing.
I have never been so tired in my entire life!!!! haha There just isnt enough time in each day to get it all done.
As each day has passed I began to think about my friends here at LCB who have children. I just had to write this and give them a HUGE applause. Taking care of children is a incredibly exhausting job. I just cant say enough to tell them that I admire them for the job they do each day.
My time with Drake has taught me many things. Just when I feel I am sure to drop, he looks at me and smiles, runs up and hugs my legs. It melts my heart, and I suddenly find the time and energy to read another book, take another walk, or change another diaper.
This time with Drake is precious to me, as I am sure all parents would feel about each day with her young child, as they grow up so fast.
He is sleeping now as I write this, and he is so sweet. I listen to his breaths and smile at the day behind me. Soon he will wake up to start again, and I better be ready.
Again, I just have to say a huge "Hats off" to all the parents out there. Taking care of a child is the hardest thing I have ever done. I've worked tuff jobs in the past, or so I thought, till I began to take care of Drake. Yet, in the quiet of the night, like now, and I can hear his breathing so sweet, it is all worth it, and I know I am loved.
There is not a greater feeling I have ever experienced.
