“Well everything we have to do in life isn’t fun, but we have to do it anyway, like…” I said as she looked back at me with an expression that said nothing I could possibly say would be relevant, “poopy diapers! Do you think it’s fun for me to change poopy diapers?” Yea I actually got her to laugh! And as if right on cue I walked around the corner and there was the baby with a poopy diaper. I scooped him up and said, “Alright then you change that ‘poopy diaper’ and I’ll change this one!” as I walked out of the room.
This morning when I got up to start the new school day with both the kids, my self pep talk was, “Ok Esther go tackle those poopy diapers with a happy heart!”
