Our Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day but Wonderful Evening

Dear Sweet Children, Our day Friday, May 7th started out bad when mommy went to the post office to mail Grammie's Mothers Day present and hit a parked suburban while trying to squeeze into a parking space. Luckily, nobody was with me and no one was hurt. Well, our van has a dent now... Then while I was trying to get everyone ready for Sarah & Hannah's Spring Choir Performance so many crazy things happened. I fed you all rigatoni and Hannah started crying because she did not like the "white dots" in it (cottage cheese). Joshua loved it so much that now he is covered head to toe with spaghetti sauce. While mommy is trying to clean Joshua up she made a mental note to herself not to get dressed first but last since my new brown skirt now had Joshua's little red handprint on it with spaghetti sauce and next time don't feed them spaghetti before a performance. While I stripped Joshua down to his diaper and was cleaning him up I hear Sarah crying very loudly in the bathroom. I quickly go to her and realize she has touched the curling iron I had plugged in to fix the girls hair pretty for their performance and realized she burned her hand pretty badly. So I told Sarah to put her hand under cold water while Hannah ran and got her an ice pack and I proceeded to fix her hair and still curl it. When it was Hannah's turn to get her hair fixed, Sarah sat down holding the ice pack. Next thing she says that blue is all over her dress. Sure enough, the ice pack leaked and her dress now has a huge blue stain on it. I took Sarah's dress off and didn't have time to wash it and dry it so I sprayed "Folex Carpet Cleaner" on the dress and wiped the stain right off! Folex is amazing! Maybe I'll start using that for stain remover instead hee hee! Daddy saved the day by coming home from work then and getting Joshua and Julia ready. Mommy made up a silly song about having a bad day but we were going to have a wonderful evening and all the kids laughed and laughed. Your cousin Michaela told me this quote when she was in 1st grade from her teacher and I try to remember it on crazy days: "When bad things happen, we can either laugh about it or cry about it and I choose to laugh". We made it to your choir performance on time and you did an amazing job. Sarah and Hannah you are both natural performers and God has given you both such a beautiful singing voice! Mommy is so proud of you!
