Hannah and Tori

Hannah got to see her friend, Tori this morning! They had such a wonderful time playing together, and I had an enjoyable time chatting with Tori's mommy (who is about 8 months pregnant with a little boy!). Hannah hadn't gotten to see Tori for quite some time, so it was a very fun time for her. I'm so happy they got to play together today! What sweet little faces.


  1. I know for homeschooling country children and stay at home mothers visits with friends are REALLY important...I'm glad you got the time with them! :)

  2. Hey Sarah - thought you'd enjoy this! Your post reminded me of this!! ;-) Love, Mel

    Babies Don’t Keep
    By Ruth Hulbert Hamilton

    Mother, O Mother, come shake out your cloth,
    Empty the dustpan, poison the moth,
    Hang out the washing, make up the bed,
    Sew on a button and butter the bread.
    Where is the mother whose house is so shocking?
    She’s up in the nursery, blissfully rocking.

    Oh, I’ve grown as shiftless as Little Boy Blue,
    Lullabye, rockabye, lullabye loo.
    Dishes are waiting and bills are past due,
    Lullabye, rockaby, lullabye loo.
    The shopping’s not done and there’s nothing for stew
    And out in the yard there’s a hullabaloo,
    But I’m playing Kanga and this is my Roo,
    Lullabye, rockaby lullabye loo.

    The cleaning and scrubbing can wait till tomorrow
    But children grow up as I’ve learned to my sorrow.
    So quiet down cobwebs;
    Dust go to sleep!
    I’m rocking my baby and babies don’t keep.
