Lookin' on the bright side

While I was trying to untangle a knot in a string Maddie brought me, she said, "Look on the bright side Mom." "And what, my dear, IS the bright side?" I asked. "If you can't do it, Daddy will be able to. 'Cause he's stronger than you."

And then, because I'm stubborn like that, I persevered and untangled the knot. 'Cause honey, comparing me to Daddy hardly brings out the bright side in me!

It could be worse. I once found myself trying to get a knot out of my daughter's shoes with my teeth when she was a toddler. Then I remembered that the shoe strings were pee soaked. It was a very gross moment.
