It wouldn’t be a week in our house without a lot of laughs and a fair amount of drama. Sure, preschool graduation had us all shedding some tears, but it turned out the family picnic did too. Thank goodness for comic relief (because the Tylenol isn’t cutting it!).
Lesson #1: Capturing a newborn’s every move and dimple through the camera lens for an hour is an amazing form of therapy.
Lesson #2: If you make a wish to shed pounds quickly, be sure to specify that you don’t want that weight to come off in the form of hair.
Lesson #3: 4 diapers + 2 outfits / 5 minutes = thank goodness for 2 little helpers
Lesson #4: While you can dress your baby girl in head-to-toe pink and declare her the sweetest baby in the world, her big brothers will keep you honest by announcing that she should enter a burping contest with her mad skillz. (Which she must have learned from you while she was in your belly, thanks to all that fizzy water you were drinking.)
Lesson #5: Preschool picnics are all fun and games until 1) the bizarre summer rain has you on the gym hardwood floor instead of the grass, and 2) the potato sack race lands you flat on your a$$ and at Urgent Care for tailbone x-rays. (Turns out after 6 weeks in bed and 2 weeks after giving birth, your body and balance aren’t at their prime. Go figure.) And, in case you’re curious, my pride suffered the most severe injury…the bruises, I’m told, will heal in a matter of weeks.
What had you laughing this week (even if it took a little time to find it humorous)?
