This morning, among many other things, I am grateful for the following:
1. That first sip of hot coffee first thing in the morning. Even though I may only be half awake, I love the ritual of preparing Mr. Coffee, pressing the ON button, and listening to the delightful gurgle. Even A. knows that in our little world, coffee comes first.
2. Vicks Vapor Rub. Apparently, I am turning into my grandmother. A. has had a lung hacking cough and nothing is really helping. This morning I lathered her chest with some Vicks hoping the menthol vapors will work some magic. I'm also thankful for soap, water, Clorox wipes, Purell, baby wipes, Lysol and Kleenex. Sometimes a 4 year old is a walking petri dish.
3. SuperWhy on PBS. So I can blog, that's why.
One more thing, I have a new obsession of late. Sign me up as Real Life Testimonial, Not an Actress, for the next late night infomercial because I am in love with Proactiv. It's true, I'm hooked, and not just to be like Jessica Simpson or Jennifer Love Hewitt either. Or P. Diddy.
As an, shall we say, older person still dealing with breakouts, I was desperate. And angry.
It's working y'all. Really.
