Swingin' & Cheatin'
Today's not-so-favorite moments included . . .
. . . trying to make popsicles with a maddeningly useless set of molds. No matter how long (or short) I thaw the popsicles, the sticks always come out when I try to pull them out of the molds. I finally tossed them today so I won't be tempted to use them again. Next time I'll just freeze popsicles in Dixie cups covered with foil, with popsicle sticks poked through. Not quite as earth-friendly, but definitely more mom-friendly.
. . . Daniel making the same request over and over, as if asking for the tenth time will somehow change the fact that we are out of bread, or that I don't know where a particular toy is.
Today's favorite moments included . . .
. . . Anna happily kicking her feet as she rode in a swing at the park.
. . . talking with Joy about what temples are for.
. . . eating blueberry pancakes for dinner. I love blueberry season.
. . . hearing Phillip laugh as he played with the big kids.
. . . hugging Daniel as he sat on my lap during family prayer.
And another thing . . .
. . . you might be a parent if you have intentionally looked at your child's Uno cards to help them win and end an interminably long game.
