If you are coming from Building Heavenly Bridges (BHB), WELCOME and if you are finding me for the first time and looking for support after a loss, then please check me out at my grief/loss blog!

This blog is a series of anecdotes from our life after losing our first child, a stillborn daughter, then going on to birth the two other lights of our lives!

Bear is 6: serious, organized, my cruise director and my time keeper.

The Comedian is 4: She is pure comedy always doing something unintentionaly funny that I attempt to put into words.

Enjoy our stories, conversations, and delights as we embrace the lives of our second and third daughters without ever negating our first.

Perfect Moment Monday -- Table for Three?

As of late, Jer has been working into the night using every ounce of daylight to accomplish something. That is a feat, as I truly thought we were headed for another 40 day flood.

As a result it is often just the girls and I for dinner. The other nights, they were seated with full plates as I worked on filling mine. My back was to them when I heard this conversation.

Comedian: "Just the two of us..."

Bear: (in a serious-fact-correcting, yet very light hearted tone) "Comedian, you know there are three girls in this family. Emma went in mommy's belly first. Then she died. Then she came out. Then I went in mommy's belly next. I didn't die. Then I came out. Then you went in mommy's belly last. You didn't die either. They you came out. And that is why there are three sisters but only two of us eat at the dinner table."

Comedian: (not deterred in the slightest) " Yeah! Cause Emma lives to God. So Emma eats with God. She doesn't need to eat at our table cause God has great food at his table in heaven."

Cue random topic change, giggles and the rest of our dinner.

I love that they speak of Emma so concretely. I love that I was able to listen without falling apart. Oh boy...how far we've come.

What beautiful angels you have.

I love the description of being in your belly.

It's so refreshing and healthy that they include Emma in their circle of sisters.

I wandered over from WeebleWobblog: http://www.weebleswobblog.com/ and am so glad I did. Thanks for sharing your Perfect Moment!
