A text conversation between John and I after a dinner of meat loaf and mashed potatoes, where Maddie dug in with her own fingers and fed her Dada because she thought he needed to eat more. After dinner and before I could wipe off her fingers, she scooted off towards his laptop.

JOHN: Am I supposed to get upset when I have to clean mashed potatoes off my laptop for 15 minutes? Cause it only seems to make me smile. Weird huh? :)

ME: Hahaha no.. not weird at all. I smile when I have to sweep cracker crumbs out of our bed. It means we are blessed. :)

How truly blessed we are indeed!

I never thought of myself as a "glass half empty" kind of person, but comparing myself to you, I guess I am because neither of those scenarios happening to me would make me smile!

haha. no kidding. y'all must be first-time parents. I hope it's all just as fun with the second :) Or, you can recruit Maddie to wipe off the mashed potatoes...
