Pray for me.

I'm watching a friend's youngest child tomorrow. This is a mom of 6 boys and her boys are... well... energetic. I'll have the little guy (who is 3 1/2) for 5 1/2 hours.

I had already planned a going away party for one of my LLL coleaders and we're taking the kids to one of those indoor inflatables places. The kids should jump their energy out... I hope! I'll be there with 5 kids under age 5 so that's why I need the prayers. I must be nuts, right?

Oh, and just to make it REALLY interesting? I might end up watching another friend's youngest (5 months old) while she attends a birth. She's a midwife and she's got a mom who is 42 + weeks and another mom due this week. The last time she went to a birth (her first since having her last baby) she brought her baby to the birth and her older daughter watched her. I went to the birth too and nursed her baby when she was busy. This time I'm not going to the birth so she's going to have to bring the baby to me (and probably the older daughter too) so it should be interesting, to say the least. I've never coslept with someone else's baby before!

And just another piece of strange information... Last week I realized that my breastmilk has now nourished 9 babies! 4 of my own children, 1 baby of a friend that I nursed, and 4 recipients of donated breastmilk. Is that cool or what?
