Just laugh...

We've all been there.
Something crazy happens...
and you can either: LAUGH or CRY.

Recently, I've tended toward the "CRY" side (hanging head in shame).
I don't really like that side.
It doesn't "fit" me.

So a couple days ago, I vowed to LAUGH more.
Shrug it off and let it go...because really...the world will go on.

Coop decided to put my commitment to the test (almost instantly)
At least he was nice enough to do so by a beautifully lit window...

Yes. That is a HUGE pile of dirt.
(No. There was no plant in the pot. Don't ask.)

Yes. I decided to take some pictures and allowed him to continue playing in the dirt.

Yes. He also ate the Dirt. (That was gross)


I think that as a MOM, you have that many more opportunities to choose a "side".
The littlest thing can feel like the end of the world.
I dunno.
(If you have the answer please share it with us)

Anyways...I hope I can keep LAUGHING...it's much more "ME".
(Pretty sure the kids and hubs prefer the LAUGHING too)

Any LAUGH or CRY moments you care to share?
