P.S. I am coming back to remark on yesterday’s post after having seen Brandy’s comment (which was a nice one, by the way!). About that “perfect” remark…I am not so sure that I was trying to amplify that impression. But if that’s what came through, then I’d like to refer to a few posts back when I was pretty stressed about being a mommy and juggling life outside of our home. Yesterday’s post — quite a contrast — is just a feeling on that particular day. I do feel good about what’s been going on, but honestly, most days are huge hurdles. Walt was so crabby yesterday from a severe rash that I was ready to tear my hair out!
After seeing news of Patrick Swayze’s death though — and who didn’t love Dirty Dancing? — it’s pretty hard not to be reminded that we are ALL pretty darn fortunate, and the majority of us are doing a great deal to help others. And maybe if we focused more on why life is pretty good, this world would be a better place all the way around. Right? I’d like to believe that. After all, the title of this blog is “The Happiest Mommy on the Block.”
Here is a new photo illustrating why life here is pretty good. These kids…They drive me nuts sometimes, but they are so cute! So funny! Did you know that every time Bret or I go potty now we are congratulated by Ms. Maggie? Every trip to the bathroom is a celebration. Who knew that this would happen with kids? It’s all a new ride!
