~In Labor So I'm Helping~

Hey everyone. I hope you are doing well today! =) Things are good here. God is so awesome and I am so grateful for this day. So, my husband's niece went into labor today. That means that I am watching their two little ones, plus I have the little one I usually watch also today. Things are actually not that chaotic either! Lol. I don't mind helping at all-especially since I know how it is not having a babysitter to help when you are in labor! Jackson went to get his glasses just a few minutes ago with Johnny-he is excited to pick out a pair he likes! At least he feels better about it now than he did a few days ago. His thumb hurts on and off but he is doing okay. The kids all had lunch and now it is nap time here for the little ones! They had a cheeseburger, peas, veggie straws, fries and V8 juice. =) With full bellies they are now all sleeping. The older ones did their school work this morning and they are almost done with the book reports they were working on. Those are due by the end of the day. Phew-that's been my day so far! Busy but amazing!

A most productive day. Glad to hear it all worked out well. Blessings to the mom-to-be. Do let us know if it's a girl or boy and what they are naming the baby.

@RasmaSandra She is having a boy, not sure on the name yet. She had to be induced because they were losing the babies heart rate. =(

That is a busy day. I hope your niece has a healthy baby. One thing I forgot to ask in the other post about Jackson's thumb, how did he sprain it?

@Leapea2417 Thank you, she had to be induced because they were losing her baby's heart beat. =( I am praying for her and the baby-praying for the best. He was playing with his friends, running and tripped on the curb in front of our house. When he fell he put his hand down like we all do and his thumb took most of his weight.

It sounds like you had a really busy day, but you have it all under control! I can see why your husband's niece picked you to babysit! You do a superb job of it with God's help. Hopefully, the baby will be nice and healthy, and i believe he will be with the help of your prayer and the rest who are praying for her and her baby including me. That baby could not have picked a better family to be born into with relatives like you!

@LovingMyBabies I am happy you will share how everything went! i will look around as i wasn't on here since yesterday afternoon and i am hoping she is still not in labor now or that is one long labor. But my cousin had a 36-hour labor that ended in a C-section 18 years ago

@kandae11 Yeah, it was 9 total including mine. I don't do that every day though and most of the kids were family.
