Funny, I've just gotten everyone used to the Royal Terminology, (crowned, throne, etc) love the Elvis connotations (The King has Entered the building)... I do like the Magical idea, probably more appropriate to it's effect
AH! My life is sooo much calmer after this weekend! Although my family is completely crazy about the baby situation, I'm glad to be "kicked out" of my foster parent role. I went to the Black Hills this weekend to hang out with my Consistent Male Companion, sans the baby, and it was WONDERFUL!
We went driving around the mountains on logging roads and over rocks and past creeks (I have never been the "outdoors-type" before, he is introducing all of this to me and my kids ~ it's so cool!). The kids and I had time to explore our soon-to-be new home town and look at places to (and not to) live and what seems fun and where to find the "comforts of home"...
Meanwhile, my sister took the baby and stayed with my parents; I guess they will be there until my sister gets an apartment. My parents are incredibly blind in their support of her. They don't want to lose
another grandchild. They are unfortunately alone in their support of her, most everyone (including the aunt in previous post!) knows where that baby is best off... I said every blessing, every spell, every prayer I could over that baby, I sent her away surrounded in my white light. I don't know what's ahead for her, at least she got a week of goodness from us.
I think my kids are disappointed not to have come home to her, but it sure is nice to have mommy be just ours again! I've been really honest with them about why she was with us and my hopes for her... they're incredibly insightful after the past few years in our family, especially daddy's illness & death, better than me, they know how to go with the flow
; I imagine this is what they have to teach me
