Successes for 1/8/10

1.)  Snuggled with this little gem dandy on the couch:

2.)  Turned his room into a giant chalk board and let him help.

3.)  Started freaking out when he spilled a gallon of paint, but caught myself and decided to scoop him up in my arms instead.  I could tell he already felt bad enough without me getting upset.  Isn't that usually the case with anyone who makes a mistake?

4.)  Did absolutely nothing concerning music.

5.)  Went on a date with my husband.


  1. Impressive that the paint remained on the dropcloth. Congrats for that. That never happens when I spill paint. A very successful day for you.

    I find it very difficult to get angry with anyone with eyes as blue as his. My boys have the same eyes. Powerless. I was powerless.

  2. Sounds like a grand day, and looks like Thatch has lost a tooth.

  3. oh these are good ones! i love reading these, mindy! they make me feel empowered. (: ps. i heard that cute couch that hangs out in the carport mumbling with jealousy about these lists... (;

  4. At least he was considerate enough to spill it on the plastic! Your reaction was absolutely spot on. He did feel bad enough already, and you re-enforced to him that he is way more important than some dumb paint (or carpet or whatever). Way to go, Mom!
