Sunday's events, seemed like a good idea at the time

Things that I do throughout my day often seem like a good idea at the time, but later prove themselves otherwise. Today two such events occured:
  1. We have a lovely Sunday ritual. We eat lunch at Panera Bread, and then go grocery shopping at the Kroger. We do it all together, the three of us; Rob, Lilah (me), & Grace. Grace is at the tender age where she often falls asleep in the car on the way home from the store. So part of our Sunday ritual is to keep Grace awake during the drive home. Today we employed lots of fun, techno-laden dance tunes, and some car dancing. Eyelids still heavy, I handed her a straw (one of her favorite toys, mind you) LESS THAN A MILE FROM HOME. We made it home, parked, and turned around to find this:

"Here Grace, play with this straw and don't fall asleep."

2. I purchased a WATER SOLUBLE ink pad to make some cute thank-you cards with Gracie handprints on them. A simple project for three, with easy clean-up thanks to the WATER-SOLUBLE ink pad. WRONGO. Our fingers are stained pink. Rob's fingers. My fingers. And Grace's entire right hand. Stained pink.

This was after 20 minutes of washing. True story.

"Maybe if I drink this bottle of Burt's Bees shampoo it will help..."

"Alright, no more of your great ideas for today. " Rob
