Thursday was not only Primary day, but also Christmas party day. My daughter was enjoying the kids, their funny stories, their extreme cuteness. She was good help, too, running errands for us, playing with the kids at table time, and even taking them to the bathroom (where she was entertained with one girl's lively description of the status of her poop). Then, shortly before we had our special snacks and headed to the actual party (yes, including Santa), my daughter called to me from the other side of the room, where she was sitting in the Home Living center with the kids playing there.
"Mom, there's a liquid on the floor over here!"
Never words you want to hear at preschool.
Upon closer inspection, I found that there was a pee-pee accident, which I took care of posthaste, and we went on with our party. By the end of a morning with a dozen hyped-up 3 year olds, however, my daughter proclaimed that this day had been the BEST BIRTH CONTROL EVER. (Can I hear an "Amen" anyone?) And so, in honor of my daughter, here is a repeat broadcast of this post from last year:
