It's a good thing

Sometimes when people tell me "I don't know how you do it" I smile and tell them "It helps to have a sense of humor."

It's true.  I try to laugh as much as I can...and sometimes it helps, especially when I'm trying not to sweat the small stuff.  It really helps when I'm ranting and Mr W points out how absurd I'm being by cracking up himself as he repeats whatever just came out of my mouth. (okay, sometimes I want to throw something at him, but most of the time, I see it and laugh too)

This morning, I'm rushing kids out the door, so I tell Audrey to go get her chanclas (flipflops).  She says something back to me, but I don't get it right away...then it hits me...she's saying:  "I go in my toes."  As she points her little foot just so, and points to her toes.  Ahh.  The little barefoot contessa will be returning for another summer of "Audrey!  Get back here!  The sidewalk is HOT!!" 

We live in AZ, remember, the sidewalk here can be an eye-opening experience at noon in July...so I don't think this will be a problem.

Well, not for long, lol.

ah, how fondly I remember the days of having to start my car to cool it off, instead of the mid winter warm ups i'm used to know.
