1. A couple weeks ago I watched a sappy halmark made-for-TV movie. The mom in it said, "a mother is only as happy as her saddest child." Interesting to think about.
2. I saw a commercial for a show, "In the Motherhood". One of the moms said, "We have been out of diapers for 2 days...we've been using paper towels and tape!"
I laughed and laughed.
Once when we went to pick Lincoln up at my moms, she announced that we hadn't brought enough diapers. (grandmas tend to change babies (and bathe them) more then mommys).
The poor kid was wearing his brothers underwear and a sanitary pad combination.
Definitely more creative (and more effective!) then paper towels and tape.
