Almost One Step Closer!

So tomorrow is the Intro to Childbearing course, then Sat/Sun is the Doula Training workshop. I am really excited! I really, really need the time away. But I'm also worried about Dave and the kids. It's not good timing for them. Dave is still in pain and can't lift the big 2 kids. He also has never changed Ruthie's cloth diapers or fed her (or any baby) a bottle. I will be gone for 9.5+ hours each day, and the course is downtown so I wouldn't have time to come home to nurse at lunch. And we only have 1 vehicle, though Dave wouldn't be able to bring all the kids anyway, since he can't lift them (and he can't leave them at home, obviously).

So, I know we will survive, but it might be rough. For them anyway. Anyone want to drop by and help Dave out?

This is the only time I can take the course before my friend's birth in Oct. So I need to do it now. Hopefully everything will just go well. I am looking forward to being 1 step closer to being a doula!

I'm really excited for you. And if I lived, you know, a little closer I would most definitely come help out!
But I will be praying from here for a peaceful day for the littles and Dave!
