Wouldn't have it any other way...

This is how we wake up
Goldie's pillow takes up most of the bed. The sheets are wrinkled and worn. I have an airplane in my back. Sometimes there are crumbs from a late night snack, or a stain from spilled milk. All washable. All removable. These are the images in my head when people stop me in the grocery store and say "enjoy this time, it goes by too fast". I do enjoy this time. I enjoy waking up with kids in my bed. It does go by too fast. So I remove the airplane from my back and look out the window.
Gorgeous. Looks like we will be playing outside after preschool. I drop G off at school and when I get back I am asked if I want the good news or the bad news. Good news please. Rex pooped on the toilet. Not the froggy potty, the big regular toilet. Without help. Here comes the bad news. 
He wiped himself.
It could be much worse. As Sammy and I clean up operation poop smear, we are reminded that it all goes by too fast.
