Quote from "Stepping Heavenward" by Mrs. E. Prentiss

"She says I shall now have one mouth more to fill and two feet the more to shoe, more disturbed nights, more laborious days, and less leisure or visiting, reading, music and drawing.

Well! This is one side of the story, to be sure, but I look at the other.

Here is a sweet, fragrant mouth to kiss; here are two more feet to make music with their pattering about my nursery. Here is a soul to train for God; and the body in which dwells is worthy of all it will cost, since it is the abode of a kingly tenant. I may see less of friends, but I have gained one dearer than them all, to whom, while I minister in Christ's name, I make a willing sacrifice of what little leisure for my own recreation my other dear darlings had left me. Yes, my precious baby, you are welcome to her time, her strength, her health, her tenderest cares, to her lifelong prayers! Oh, how rich I am, how truly, wondrously blest!"

My Sweet Little Christopher

He's a sweet little fella
that just turned two
who looks for interesting things
to explore and get into.

Like the 13 eggs he & his nephew Jackson
plopped on the floor.
The first must have made such a cool noise
because they decided to do a dozen more.
Buy at Art.com
There's the nearly new conditioner
that I left by the sink.
He must have decided the floor
needed major detangling.

Don't you love that b.b.s
make such a neat sound
when you dump out a thousand
all over the ground.

When you are two
you must also decide when you want to eat
you climb on the counters
because all the muffins are your treat.

And when your 6 year old sister's
birthday cake is cooling
go ahead and eat it
no point in just drooling.

No longer will I get too excited
when I find out he didn't poo in his diapers.
He may have decided to be like his pup
and poo in the back yard for the neighbors.

To be continued
but not too quickly, I must speak!
because all this happened
in the space of a week!!
