This afternoon was one of "those" parenting days. Without incriminating too many people, lets just say that in the last hour or so I:
Scrubbed poop off bedroom walls
Took care of poopy bedding and stuffed animals
Mediated a disagreement where one child got punched in the stomach
Found out another ruined his shoes by not putting his boots on in the snow
Heard a running tattling commentary from a child who can't understand that just because something is true doesn't mean it can't still be a tattle
Grabbed our cat that had gotten outside
Stopped a child from climbing on our china cabinet
Still managed to make supper and wash dishes
On days like this, I need to find my "happy place". Let me share my all time favorite movie scene. It is impossible to not be in a better mood after watching it. When everything seems to be going wrong, laughing like this is about the only cure.
Thank you, Tom Hanks.
