Tonight Amber will be come home.

Tonight Nikki will finish getting ready to leave.

Tonight 4 other children who are going with Nikki will be spending the night.

Tonight the house will be filled with laughter.

Tonight the house will be filled with stories.

Tonight I will have 7 children try to eat me out of house and home.

Tonight I will tell all of the children to go to bed, but they won't.

Tonight I am going to rejoice because my home will be filled with the laughter of children.

Tonight I will not sleep because Nikki and all of her friends are leaving at 2 a.m.

Tomorrow I will put the house back together.

Tomorrow Amber will dump all of her laundry on the floor.

Tomorrow I will want a nap.

Tomorrow I not want to cook.

However tonight I am going to enjoy the fact that I raised 2 very good children.

As I sit right now I am wondering how they grew up so fast. I am glad that they are growing up. I am just glad that I am here to watch them turn into beautiful young women who have minds of their own.

Sounds like fun to me !!  Tomorrow order pizza or some sort of take out so you don't have to cook.  Amber will probably sleep for 2 days....Praying for a safe trip for Nikki and her friends.   Linda in WA

Amen, to tucking in our children and then yelling at them for coming home late.
I love being a mom and grandmother.
