Miracles Do Happen February 3, 2010

Filed under: 406 — mommyoffive @ 9:56 pm

Last week I had a horrible, gut-wrenching, heart-breaking moment.

I realized that Sarah may not be able to go on vacation with us.  And that she would most definitely not be able to go with us on the week I had scheduled.

Miracle #1:  Sarah was actually sad when she found out that she might have to miss our family vacation.  She really does like us!

I did what any mother would do.  I frantically pulled out the calendars (mine, kids, schools, etc.) and started searching for a week that could possibly work.

Miracle #2:  I found one.  Just one.  And it would be hard to pull it off.  But it was worth a shot.

Then, I pulled the family together for a special “Should we move our vacation to a crazy- inconvenient week so that Sarah will have a teeny tiny chance of being able to go with us even though there is no guarantee?” vote.

Miracle #3:  Five of the kids voted to change our vacation dates.  They actually wanted her to come along.  They do like her.

    Why do you always have to do blog posts that make me out to be some sort of horrible person? What did I do to deserve this? I’m a generally good sister. They don’t all hate me. ‘Cept for Daniel. He voted no. Anyway back to my original point, What did I do to deserve such a cruel mommy? All I ever did was love you… 😦
