30 Days of Thanks ~ Day 2
Grace was a bit of a terror yesterday. There wasn't a moment in the day that she wasn't getting into something. She tried to make a cup of coffee with our new Keurig Vue while using her Elmo potty as a step stool. Luckily, the machine was still heating up, so nothing happened except that she poked holes in a couple of Vue cups when she inserted them into the machine. She drew on her fingers with magic markers and then smeared them over the walls and she drew on her face with the same magic markers. After filling the tub and washing the marker off of her hands and face, I realized I didn't have a towel in the bathroom for her. I left the room to get her a clean towel, just long enough for her to find the brand new bottle of shampoo and pour the entire thing into the tub! She wanted more bubbles! sigh!
I really don't know what's gotten into her! And what's crazy is that she's not ever really out of my sight for very long! Just long enough for me to go to the bathroom or gather a pile a dirty laundry to toss down the stairs to the basement or to get that clean towel for when she was finished her bath. She's just that quick!
So, while I'm thankful for the Mr. Clean Magic Eraser that removed the magic marker finger paints from my wall, I'm mostly thankful for the play date we have planned for the day. The play date I hope will make her so tired that she won't feel the need to tear this place apart!
I'd love for you to share what you are thankful for today! Let me know in the comments below!
