Mom of the Year!!

I have the most amazing wife ever! At about 10:00 last night, I called her from my training in Alabama, she had just finished Mary's nighttime treatment and put her down to bed. As soon as she picked up the phone, she said "I have to go, Jackson just started throwing up!" He continued to vomit every 30-45 minutes throughout the night. So needless to say, she spent the night changing sheets, changing PJ's and cleaning up puke, and didn't get any sleep.  I'm sure at 6:30 a.m., when Jackson finally fell asleep, she was temped to just let Mary sleep in, so that she could get some sleep herself.  But it was time to get Mary up for school, and Mary couldn't miss, because she absolutely wanted to see the puppet show with the rest of her class!

So, at around 8:45 I got this picture of Mary enjoying the puppet show with her class! Amazing!
But, the fun didn't stop there!  Of course when Mary got home from school, instead of  lunch and naps, Mary and Jackson wanted to make their own "puppet theaters"!

So of course, Kate went to work making these awesome puppet theaters for Mary and Jackson!
Jackson's Finger Puppet Theater!
Here Mary is putting on a puppet show for Jackson (and Sam)!
Mary the puppeteer!

Here's a picture of my wonderful, beautiful wife, Kate!  She takes amazing care of our children (which is no small task) and manages everything at home... flawlessly playing the roll of mom, doctor, nurse, chef, maid, supply clerk, office manager, washing machine repairman, and the list goes on & on!  She never thinks of herself, and rarely gets a break.  This is why I'm declaring Kate the Mom of the Year!!
