I've Met Someone New...


I'm in love and my sweetie knows about it. This is Gloria and she helps me with the house. At first Wes had her set to come twice a week and I argued with him. I told him once a week was fine. Twice a week is too much. What can she possibly do for 5 hours two days a week in a tiny, little space. Well what she does is amazing. The house is spotless when she leaves at 1:00. We won't discuss how long it takes my little ones to destroy it. I am convinced that she must have worked retail {clothing} because she can fold a shirt in 5 seconds flat and it is FLAT! She also can fold a fitted sheet and you won't be able to tell it's the fitted one until it's completely unfolded. And even then you really have to look. Can you believe these shirts? Beautiful! The other fantastic thing about her is that she does that scoop up the baby, snuggle, and speak in Spanish baby talk. Landon didn't know what to think about it the first time. Now he snuggles in and enjoys it.
I used to have the "I need to work when the help is here" syndrome. Now I can even be found in the pool with the kids or getting in extra snuggles with my little one. More time to be the mommy. How sweet is that? Thank you Gloria! Thank you honey! {the last thank you is to my husband, in case you thought differently}

I wish i could borrow her to help out at my place! Thats great. That reminds me at how great mom was at all that stuff, i wish she would have had someone to give her a break a little more often. But we all know mom and how she preferred to do things like that herself. You are lucky shawna im glad it gives you extra special time with the kids. You are such a great mother!
