So, today I'm grateful for:
1. DVDs and the player. Seriously, I needed a break and the lovely LEAP dvd's, with their chirpy Letter Factory, Word Factory and Reading Factory stuff...and maybe even a Math Circus, were such good little substitute teachers for my girls today! Now, granted, they watched some Caillou, too (why does that kid not have hair???), but at least I didn't have over whelming guilt while they watched the LEAP stuff. Why? Because Miss E's kindergarten teacher said it was a great learning tool. Yay!
2. Medicine and chicken soup.
3. Bedtime. Yes. It's sometimes the little things that make me able to continue with the rest of it all. Have you seen this by Hilary Weeks? If not, you should...right here, right now. You won't be sorry.
"My plea is that we stop seeking out the storms and enjoy more fully the sunlight. I am suggesting that as we go through life, we 'accentuate the positive.' I am asking that we look a little deeper for the good, that we still our voices of insult and sarcasm, that we more generously compliment and endorse virtue and effort."
~President Gordon B. Hinckley
