Cause and Effect

If your littlest is really not feeling well and you think a walk outside will help,

Then your arms will get sore because you end up carrying him the whole time.
(Apparently the view is better from up here...)

If you would do anything for thirty minutes of peace while cooking dinner so you ignore the children who have locked themselves in the bathroom,

Then they you will have a big mess to clean up.

If you always think it would be a great idea to carry around a spare set of clothes for each child in your car but never actually put the spare clothes in the car,

Then your daughter will have to wear home a large Chuck-E-Cheese shirt when she has gone down a slide that a different child just puked all over.

(I know. Gross, right? She was pretty excited about the free shirt though.)

If you blog about the tough parts of life sometimes,

Then you realize that you're not alone in the trenches and it makes you feel a little bit better.

Thanks friends.


  1. Our skill lesson this week in Reading: cause and effect. Maybe this blog will appear on my classroom screen before the test today for a bit of review! I went from "ohhh" to "aahhhh" in each example! (well sort of ewwww to ahhh on the puke one!)

  2. I love puke stories that I did not have to clean up!
