We have a lot of wonderful things going on, and each event and interaction reminds me of how blessed I am.
In an effort to slow down, reflect, and enjoy this delightful week, I will not be posting to the blog.
And in case you think it's all fun and games in the Hooper house, let me share with you a quick story that illustrates "reality" even amidst the best week ever.
Henry, our climber, decided to conquer the television stand. He's not quite tall enough to climb it without assistance, so he figured out how to drag his red chair up to the stand thus allowing him a crutch for climbing. As I watched him climb, I noticed some discoloration around the leg of his diaper. Sure enough, he had explosive diarrhea oozing from his diaper. As I pulled him off the stand, I soon realized the diarrhea was smeared across his red chair. Grainy, yellow-brown, liquid poop across his plush, comfy, favorite red chair.
Fortunately the chair is slipcovered, and it was about time to do laundry anyway.
But I'm not complaining. A bit of liquid poop isn't going to spoil our blessed week!
