I wanted to put together a well written, thoughtful, and informative post today. But soon realized that I was completely incapable.
Some things that have happened at our house today:
Audrey found a full tube of petroleum jelly and managed to lather it over her entire body.
Parker used a marker to draw on his shirt and it soaked through to his skin and he now appears to have tribal markings all over himself. We have Awana tonight. Should be fun.
I managed to make a cake and complete and entire order of cookies. Then realized I made the WRONG order of cookies.
Audrey has a bit of a runny nose and we are out of kleenex so as I grabbed a new roll of toilet paper and was attempting to pull off a few squares to wipe her nose and I started to lose my grip for some reason as realized I was going to drop the roll in my left hand so even though I had a firm grasp of the sheets in my right hand I let go with both hands. I then gave myself a mental pat on the back for not holding on to the single sheets because then I would have had the roll unwind a lot and it would have been a big mess. I then realized that I had given myself a mental pat on the back for dropping a roll of toilet paper.
So what is going on in the world today? I saw that Joy Behar called Sarah Palin a b*itch and that she is going to burn in hell and that some Marie Clair blogger said fat people kissing is gross. Seems about the norm huh? (If I can get up the energy I might provide links… if you happen to know them already feel free to leave it in the comments. Seriously. I am still thinking about toilet paper here.)
Oh! Just an FYI, the LG TextEd campaign is going on over at BlogHer, and there are some really insightful posts from moms about how they handle issues related to texting/sexting/phone use. Even though that’s not an issue in our house right now, I was surprised at how much I learned about the issue and how I plan to parent on it!
Hope your day is going smoother then mine!
