a small epiphany

I reread yesterday’s blog post and had an epiphany: I have confused house cleaning with parenting. Doing the dishes is not critical to keeping my children alive! However, stuff like that is critical to my sanity, and my sanity is a valuable asset in child rearing. So, in a roundabout way, dishes help.

I did take some pictures today.

We started out the morning with baths. Those always give Mary's hair a fighting chance for the day.

...But no matter what we do, after her nap, her hair always ends up like this. Mary smiles and says, "My hair is cwazy!"

Summer took Lydia to her school today for “take a preschooler to school day,” and I have a cute shot of them outside her school. I was proud of Lydia for walking all the way back home with Summer afterward. She had to trek up a pretty big hill and walk quite a ways, and by the time she came home, she was pretty pooped.
