    You know that moment when you look out the window, and you see your middle 4 children-who you thought were just playing outside--are actually making a mud puddle out of your soon-to-be-garden-plot and throwing thick mud at each other and every surface they see?

    Or how about, in the 2.18 seconds it took you to look out the window, your 20 month old went from sitting 3 feet away from you to out the front door, dropping her dress and diaper in the mean time, so that she's dashing towards a bird in the middle of the road clad in nothing but purple socks and a milk mustache. :eek:

    And then, when you come back in with the screaming naked toddler and find your oldest in the kitchen, you ask her to please save your burning grilled cheese off the stove--she interrupts you to say her BG is 312 with 1 arrow up and 0.9 ketones and she just maybe, sorta, kinda accidentally forgot to bolus for all the carb-laden fruit and chips she grazed on that morning.

    Thank god the afternoon went better!!! :rolleyes:

    My beloved pride and joys that are slowly but surely giving me gray hair at 31! :D

    Not exactly those kinds of days, but similar - it's a great thing that we can look back later and smile :D Even the gray hairs end up being fun eventually...

    It's okay...My husband laughed too when I told him. and today was a MUCH better day! We went to the park--we hiked, we ate a picnic lunch and played on the playground and danced in the sprinklers. and then we all came home and took a nap! :)

    Sounds like an ideal day...and a lovely "reward" for what you had to go through the other day!:)

    Brought back memories of my childhood and when my girls were children. Thanks for the chuckle.
