I say half full.

Some would say I was crazy to bring 3 - 4 year olds to an evening playdate. But R was out of town and I was looking for ways to entertain the Salad every second of every day, so when Miss Amy invited us to a make-your-own-pizza party, I jumped at the invitation. Of course, when I said yes, I couldn't have know that my children who normally sleep 12 hours a night (and need every minute of those 12 hours) would only have 9 hours the night before, due to a massively fun sleepover at Grammy and Poppy's.

Some would say I was a fool not to cancel our dinner plans.

I say, "Let's take a chance."

Some would say that 1 little girl peeing on the floor of the bathroom was an incident that would cause us to leave said party.

I say, "Here are some dry undies, now get on out there and keep having fun!"

Some would say a screaming match between a 4 year old boy and a 2 year old girl over a plastic stroller would bring the festivities to a screeching halt.

I say, "Hey! Who's up for a distracting game of hide and seek?"
See, some days it's all about whether your glass is half full or spilled all over the place.


  1. Can I just borrow this viewpoint EVERY day of my life? It's so much easier when you take it all in stride, isn't it? And it doesn't really require more energy. Maybe "half full" can be my new mantra :)

  2. What a great attitude to have.
