invisible pink bananas

As I was tossing my shirt into the washing machine, I took a moment to examine exactly what was on it. The contents of said remains are a pretty good summation of my life these days:
  • Blood. From Jo's lip that Millie landed on at the bottom of the slide. Snot was also there, from her crying on me.
  • Red Kool-Aid stain from Hazel's mouth when I picked her up after dinner. (My stinking cell phone is also stained with this red Kool-Aid. It will never work again.)
  • A wide swath of plain 'ol dirt from sitting on the ground, while Millie brought me rocks that were Tinkerbell and Jo brought me invisible pink bananas. 
  • Smudge of dog food from Samwise's muzzle 
  • Bread crumbs from my homemade bread
Not exactly what Mary Crawley's maidservant would find on her evening gowns at the end of a tea party-filled day at Downton, but whatever. We end these days exhausted, sunburnt, and one blessed day older.

  1. This really made me smile. While my sister was staying with us she made a comment one day about how much "stuff" comes out of my kids each day... and how I just go with it. So many diapers, sometimes throw up, snot everywhere, food, etc I clean up constantly. That night when I changed into PJ's I found two junior mints on the inside of my shirt that had been smashed to bits while the family watched a disney movies earlier. I LOVE examining the contents of my shirts each night. Seriously- it's comical.
