Don't Blink

Today we were playing in the rain and I noticed on the sidewalk were little footprints. It was so cute, I had to take a picture. Well, a few minutes later I looked back and they were gone. How similar is that to life? One minute we are enjoying something wonderful but we get sidetracked and then we notice it's gone. As I approach Lindsey's first birthday I feel so differently than with Whitney's first birthday. When Whitney was a baby I was constantly...
And that's as far as I got.
Ty returned home shortly after I started blogging so I took a break. He went and put in a load of laundry while I was finishing packing. I was trying to stuff our winter coats into the luggage and I needed to sit/lay on the bag in order for Ty to be able to zip it up. We turned around and saw our lovely angel had poured out almost 3/4 of a Costco size liquid tide. I guess I should count our blessings and that most of it was on the kitchen floor. Here was our attempt at saving as much as we could:
It's the sweet ones who are trouble! Another life lesson...don't trust anyone! haha
Luckily, we got most of it back into the container and our house smells very fresh when you walk in the door!
And while we were cleaning, our almost 3-year-old decided to sneak into our bedroom and draw all over herself.

Oh what a night! I am grateful for little precious moments. My kids are awesome, even if sometimes they test me. :-)

Hilarious! Those moments make the best blog posts (and some of the best memories...after they're all cleaned).
