Thank you for Miss A’s love of the potty and thank you for making 2008 the Year of the Big Girl Panties. That is truly awesome.
Now Lord, you work in mysterious ways and only you know why Miss A is now boycotting washing her hands at daycare and giving her teacher the evil stink eye when asked to wash up after potty time. Please Lord give her the desire to cleanse her hands thoroughly after using the potty and to obey her teachers and especially her doting mother, for that matter. Please God let the banning of TV and computer time yesterday and the threat of holding back on her Valentine’s Day candy let serve as a motivating factor today.
Speaking of daycare, God please let that mother who keeps bringing in McDonald’s breakfast for her child to eat at the table while the other children eat cold Cheerios realize that not only is she being inconsiderate, but she’s making the classroom smell like a fry cook apron.
And God, the parents and daycare teachers who drive into the “exit,” rather than the entrance, at daycare? Please make them stop before I flip them off in the parking lot in front of my sweet children.
Thank you, as always, for the girls’ ability to always make me laugh. That is my saving grace.
