my not so perfect life...and why to pay attention to infomercials.


I have been at this little blog thing for almost 2 months and I must say I am really enjoying myself. I get to record snippets of our lives and share them with all of you and hopefully the girls one day. I have had 3 comments from friends and family who read this about how nice and happy and wonderful our life looks when they read this. That is what makes this so fun. I get to forget about all the challenging stuff that goes on each day (such as the 15 minute tantrum Madison is throwing right now because she can't have a glass of milk) and relate all the fun stuff, creative stuff and moments when I feel I am doing my best mothering. (Note that I usually only update 1 or 2 times a week- maybe more "best mothering" is in order.) So, I thought I would share a bit of today with you all.
(still throwing a tantrum over milk)


This is what I found when I came downstairs today after 5 minutes of leaving Madison alone. She had dumped half a bottle of soy sauce and lots of ketchup all over my carpet. My first thought was "I guess we'll have to get those hardwood floors" and then I realized why those guys on infomercials are always pouring soy sauce and ketchup on the carpets-THEY HAVE A 2 YEAR OLD. My handy-dandy bissel did a pretty good job but I really had better things to do with my time and I really wanted to blog about the great day we had with our friends sara, annie, alice and josie on arbor day and not about SOY SAUCE.

Here are a few pics of the day-if you live in the chicagoland area you should check out the morton arb.

Arbor Day

Have a wonderful not so perfect day.
