the good, the bad and the ugly

cute things:

Lilly running away from Chris at church to the primary room, climbing on my lap and waving to Chris, saying "bye, bye!", until he left

seeing my 11 year old "oh and ah" over vintage patterns and spending her own money on said patterns and a set of vintage suitcases

Elise doing her mini jumps on the trampoline

watching the girls clamor over the harvest from our garden

Hannah informing me that she still loves Lilly, even though she did bang her head into her neck.

Lilly scrunching her eyes closed while scrunching her nose, just because we laugh at her when she does it

not so cute things:

Elise flooding the bathroom

Hannah slamming the door like a teenager

a daughter that takes an hour (or two) to do the dishes

a house that just won't stay clean

a mom that probably should spend some time in her own little time out

I want to see the vintage cuties! Tell Rachel to post pictures of them on her blog!

Your house sure is flood-prone!

Ahh, I deserve my fair share of time-outs as well, but no one ever sends me to a time out. And do you know why? I'D LIKE IT.

Rachel said...

wish i could have a day of just the "cute things", eh? But those not so cute things make us appreciate the cute things more? Ying to our Yang?

I think that this is a great list. I need time-outs as well, and I am how old?
