It was one of those mornings when everything went wrong. The alarms didn’t go off, the shoes were misplaced, the diaper bag wasn’t packed, we couldn’t find any of the three ties that fit our little boy. And to make matters worse, the baby was trying to take a drink of some lemonade and he dumped it all over the floor just before we were about to walk out the door. We watched with wide eyes and baited breath as the lemonade went all over the floor, but miraculously missed our son. My Mr Right and I looked and each other and you could see us both thinking ‘whew, at least he didn’t get any on him.’ And then Little Monkey spits out a mouthful… all over his church clothes! UGH!
Since then we try to have the diaper bag packed the night before, the shoes located and sometimes, when it’s one of those mornings, we just go with the tie that’s already attached to the shirt!
