Time Lapse Lifeline

Today was a pretty crummy day...
I overslept... (and on a day off too... guess i needed it)
My hanging organizers BOTH fell in my room today, leaving me with some Bob Villa projects to embrace and lots of ceiling dust scattered about my stuff...
Target doesn't have the game Pop5... lameski. 
My Starbucks Perfect Oatmeal wasn't so perfect...
And though I had fun babysitting today, I over-sugarfied the kids on accident...i think it's due to my lack of ability to say NO to adorable kids with awesome manners... seriously. So now they're at home, with upset stomachs... :( I feel like a villain. :(

The plus side was my ability to enjoy something so simple in the day—the simplicity of a child's life.  Today as I was watching Isaiah, Eliza, and Luke, we were all playing with squirt guns in the back yard around the kiddie pool. And while Eliza and Isaiah took turns trying not to "accidentally" shoot each other with water (it was SO cute, i wish you coulda seen it!), Luke kept asking for "more agua."  Let it be known that yes, a toddler knows more spanish than me :( fail.   hahahahahahaha

But I loved it cause I would bring him back this pail of water, which he would receive with a smile, and then proceed to immediately dump it on the ground... look up at me with a giant smile on his face and ask for "more agua." over and over and was so adorable, I couldn't help but oblige him! 

But it took me back for just a bit to the times where simply dumping water out on the ground over and over and over again...was considered fun...was enough to keep someone entertained. It really made me smile. I loved hanging out with the kids today.  I learn a lot from them.
