The last couple of weeks, I've found out that the trick to help your kids through difficult situations is to keep them entertained as much as possible. This is where our neighbors, Karen and Alanna, came in. I don't think I will ever be able to thank them enough for putting their lives on hold to watch the boys and keeping things running smoothly in the home front.
While Sun Kissed Husband and I dealt with the unpleasantries of cleaning out my mom's apartment, Karen and Alanna entertained, fed, entertained again, fed some more, and bathed our boys.
And if that wasn't enough, they tidied-up, washed AND folded laundry, and cleaned up the kitchen so we wouldn't have to come back to deal with the unpleasantries of cleaning out our own house. They are truly a God-send.
