My next victim has arrived. My niece, Brandy, showed up last night to help out for the week.
With each new helper, I’m not sure how the dynamic in the house will shift. Some kids like some visitors more than others. Some people come to help and they do a lot of house work, some play with the kids, some want to cook. All of it is helpful. There is so much to do around here, every little bit helps.
I wasn’t sure which kids would attach to Brandy, but it turns out, it’s pretty much all of them (Aaron is still being a Mama’s boy, but I think that will change when he gets more comfortable). They are fighting over her already like, well, like she’s the only girl in a roomful of boys.
