Best Friends - The Nanny Chronicles

It was a really awesome day today for the boys. They got to spend some pretty wonderful time with their Mama and Daddy in the morning. It was most definitely the highlight of their day.

Today was also a special day for Jadon because his best friend (that's what he calls Allison James) came to play with him. Normally, they have an Incredible Pizza date when she comes to visit, but today they just hung out at home doing crazy cool stuff like playing soccer and building forts. Apparently, in the middle of one of their soccer matches, Jack decided he was finished with soccer and headed back inside. This was not AT ALL thrilling to Jadon, who said so, not so much with words as with protests and wailing, but nonetheless, the soccer match had to be paused, while Allison retreived Jack. All in all, she said it was a good day.

Bathtime and bedtime are always a great time for the boys. They love their baths, their stories, and their bedtime routines. Kelly is an awesome mom, and it is evident that their bedtime routine is something they all enjoy. Jack has overcome my bedtime songs and my repetoire is increasing (I no longer sing little bunny foo foo, Kelly).

Tonight at bedtime Jadon informed me that he would do all the praying. So he did. He prayed for his mama and daddy. He prayed for Kyle AND Jack. He prayed for his whole family to be safe and strong. Then he said, "Amen." I turned on his nightlite and turned off his big light. Right as I started to close the door he said, "Miss Carol, will you pray for me not to have bad dreams?" So I prayed too.

Please remember to pray daily for Jadon and Jack too. Their lives have changed significantly. They 're being little troopers, but they are just little boys who love their mama and daddy. Pray for them to have supernatural peace in all of this. Ask God for them to feel like the hours they have with their parents in the morning are the greatest and longest parts of their days.

Our Story

This story begins with 5 people. John, Kelly, Jadon, Jack, and Kyle (he is only 23 weeks old... and he is still safely tucked away in his mommy's belly) In an hour's time Kyle made his way into the world. 1 pound, 3 ounces- 11 and a half inches long. This family will never be the same. This child is a warrior. He has the spirit of a Lion, and more courage than a whole pride. He is fierce, and fearless- and he is teaching us to fear the Lord- and to believe that God is in our midst and healing even now. Join us as pray, as we praise, and as we journey through this life as lovers of God and all His glory.
