The Injustice of Life

Kids have such interesting views of life. Yesterday Nicky went to preschool in the morning. No problems, he got on the bus and came off the bus all happy. Told me all about his day. Then the afternoon rolls around and it is time for Mikey to get on his afternoon kindergarten bus. But he had a nasty cough so he was going to miss school and go to the doctor instead. So the bus shows up even though I called transportation and left a message. So I go outside and talk to the driver. She drives off without Mikey. So when I get back to the house there is Nicky sobbing and sobbing. I asked him what on earth was wrong. He told me that the bus left without Mikey. I told him that Mikey wasn't going to school since he was sick. This information caused more tears. Turns out, Nicky was very upset that he had to go to school and Mikey didn't. I told Nicky that when he is sick he can miss school. So in the car awhile later, he tells Mikey that he wants his cough so he doesn't have to go to school! Poor Nicky got the short end of the stick that day! Darn it. He had to go to school! See how unfair life is sometimes?!

Moms with Blogs

I recently have been reading blogs written by other moms and the ones I find most interesting are the moms with multiples. I find it interesting to read about their trials and tribulations and their search to find their new normal. Maybe I just like to read about other families who have it rougher than me, i.e. sleepless nights with newborns! There are some blogs that are so hard to read since the parents are writing about the babies they lost. It is so sad yet I find myself following the families.I guess it is like driving by a car accident and you just have to look.

One blog is about triplets but one of their little girls died about a month after she was born. Those parents have got to have a lot of strength to continue on and care for their surviving babies.

Another blog is about twin preemies who need so much attention ALL day long. They are healthy but require assistance even while sleeping. They sleep in swings and it seems that one of the parents are always awake to care for them!

Another blog I came across was one where both of their baby daughters died within 2 days of each other. I mean, how God awful is that??

Now, I don't just read morbid posts! This is a mom with 6 kids and she is just hysterical. I can relate to a lot of her issues with her kids and she is not shy to write about their quirks! Here is a blog about a mom of twins but she has a night nanny. Now, how great would that be?!
