don't you know by now?
I had an interesting thought in the wee hours of this morning. Oddly enough, I have my most profound thinking on little sleep.... Ethan had woken up, and as I was changing his diaper, he was growing more and more angry. He cried his little heart out the entire time - paying no mind to the fact that I was working as fast as I could to get that bottom cleaned up! And when I say cry, I mean CRY. He was crying so hard he couldn't catch his breath. His face turned shades of red, then purple, in only a matter of seconds. He was completely disinterested with the diaper change and wanted (and I mean wanted?!) a bottle. We go through this bit of impatience occasionally in these wee hour mornings. And as I was about to fasten the final side of his diaper, I said to him, "Ethan, honey, don't you know by now that your I am going to take care of you? We are seconds away from your bottle, but we have to change this diaper first!" I'm giggling as I'm talking to him... in my best baby talk, mind you. Then moments later, as I was sitting feeding him his bottle (his tears, of course, have immediately vanished!) and I had this thought.... "Kasey, don't you know by now that, I, your Heavenly father am going to take care of you, too?"
