Some days are better than others

This was just one of those days. Have you seen Daddy Daycare? Well, unfortunately I had a moment today that closely resembled the scene in that movie where Eddie Murphy opens the bathroom door to , well, nastiness. The little girl that I watch is 100% potty trained - finally. The routine here is that she says "I have to go potty" and then she takes off towards the bathroom. When she is done she will say "Dar-ween, I done". At this point I will go in and help her with the clean up. Today, well I'm not really sure what exactly happened, but let's just say that a bath was involved as well as the scraping of the shoe soles, rubber gloves and the washing machine. It was bad. And all of that was after the dog decided to throw up on the chair...twice. Frankly, I can't tell you which was worse. So in order to brighten my thoughts about this day, I am going to list 5 things that have happened that I am thankful for.

1. I remembered to put the lid on the vanilla, thus saving the mess when the cord of my mixer knocked it over.
2. Suzi's back !!
3. My hubby - he helped me clean up the bathroom mess AND fixed the back door.
4. I've been able to do my quiet time more than twice this week! I am making a valient effort to do this every day.
5. being able to stay home and raise our children.
