The other day I re-learned that I should heed the Spirit's promptings more closely when I am told to put away that giant bag of Cheerios that I left sitting on the kitchen table after breakfast. Who knew Becca was getting so tall with such a long reach?
And then I learned that while it IS a great thing to swallow that momentary burst of frustration, and to just sigh and run for the camera....
"Hmmm...did I do something I shouldn't have?"
"I guess not, since Mom is taking pictures - I must've done something cute."
This is her pose when I tell her to "smile"
...it is NOT a good idea to leave room for more mess making (even if it does create a cuter picture). Which lesson unfortunately only came to me as I was taking this picture - and it was too late.
"Mom doesn't seem to mind, I'll just dump out the rest! How fun!"
Mmm, a pile of Cheerio goodness.
"Oh my! How will I clean this all up?" Just kidding. I'm sure that thought never occurred to her.
And then I learned a really easy way to pick up a million Cheerios. Oh wait, NO I DIDN'T.
