An All New Low...

It's been a busy morning... Landen has picture day so he wanted "hair" help which made us run late so I had to drive him to school. During the drive I got a call from the "health office" at the elementary school and Emma has ANOTHER toothache. So, I run into CVS (before I drop Landen off so I can leave Maddie in the car) and pick up Tylenol, drop off Landen, run back to the elementary school where Emma is in tears, and end up taking her with me. My next stop is at my friend's to pick up some dry wall compound I need to fix some tears in our walls (thank you, Berette!), commiserate about our husbands' jobs and get a lesson in fixing wall holes. Then, it's load the girls back up and head home where I proceed to start plastering walls and take apart one of the girls beds. It's 11 am! I have not eaten anything yet this morning. This is where I find I've hit an all new low...

As I'm coming down the stairs to find a monkey wrench, I notice colorful little "O's" on the carpet that were not there when I went up the stairs. Apparently Maddie has left a trail of her snack to the living room...you know, in case she gets lost she can find her way back, I guess. So, being the enabling mom I can sometimes be, I bend down and start picking them up. Suddenly, I catch myself because I realize that as I pick up each one, I've been popping them in my mouth! Yuck! How's that for a nutritious breakfast on the run!?
