The lessons I've learned....

Since becoming a parent a lot my OCD issues have gone by the wayside.  I'm definitely not saying that I don't still have my moments.......Yes, I still wish and dream of having a clean house, but that never happens.  Things are always out of place or the carpet needs to be vacuumed, or the dishes need to be done.  I've learned to deal, or more so, cope with my OCD ways.  So, last night when we took the girls for a treat and I agreed to let them have "Blues Clues" ice cream, Terry was shocked!

Parenting Lesson 19835.....Life's too short too worry about always being clean!  My kids are washable and letting them eat blue ice cream on occasion won't hurt them.  I won't lie and say that I didn't cringe the whole time they were eating it, but those smiles were worth every ounce of anxiety I experienced.

I let my girls plant flowers this morning! They got dirt everywhere! And it washed off! :) :)

Fortunately, I've recently learned the art of a super-quick bath (not washing their hair), so it amakes things a bit easier. I so understand the tendency to try to keep them pristine, though! ;)

Glad your sweet girls loved their ice cream!

We've only eaten ice cream cones once...really for the photo opp. HA! I'm not sure I'm brave enough to do that very often. I think you deserve a big pat on the back! :)
