Life Lessons and Circus Tickets

Today I was reminded of several life lessons, lessons that I seem to relearn A LOT! 
  1. I hate when used Rice Krispy cereal is poured in the sink, left to dry ALL.DAY.LONG. Those little, evil, carbohydrate, rice puffs are the worst to pick out of the sink.  I will NEVER by that cereal again. Or at least for several months. Like, SEVERAL! 
  2. If you own a dog you will never own clean floors again. Just roll with it. There will be dirt paw prints, sloppy drinking water, dog hair fluffs, and occasional, nearly dead, insect doing donuts on your kitchen floor trying to escape the playful mouth of... let's say... a German Shepard.  A German Shepard named Holly.
  3. You can't make people like you. They either will or they won't and it really is ok either way because ultimately all that matters is that YOU like you. And your husband or spouse -- they should like you to, at least most of the time.
  4. Your little boy will occasionally pee on toilet seat. YOUR part of the seat. It will happen. And it will be gross. But your little boy will eventually grow up and you will miss the little things they did. Not the peeing on the seat little things, you will NEVER miss that. But other little things. Invest in Clorox wipes.
  5. Laughing is important. We all need to REALLY work on less yelling and more laughing. Yelling is just not productive. AT ALL. Well, unless your little boy is wandering away from you and toward something dangerous. In that case yell. But the communication that just seems to be done in a loud angry voice, get rid of that. Try to laugh more. Yelling hurts. Laughing doesn't. Well it does if you get going pretty good, that can hurt, but it feels good, too. Like getting a tattoo.

  6. And finally...

  7. Even your worst week can be made awesome if you have something to look forward to. Like going to a circus. I am SO looking forward to this week coming to an end because on Friday, I get to go to the circus. The Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus LEGENDS show.  I am excited! Me, the husband, the kiddos, even the one that pees on my seat, we are all going to Sleep Train Arena this Friday to be dazzled!
