The Happy and The Unhappy

Unhappiness is finding a sipper cup lodged under the seat of the car for WHO KNOWS how many months.

Happiness is opening it with a wary nose to find it was filled with… water.

Unhappiness is walking into the living room to find puddles of chocolate syrup on the carpet.

Happiness is Resolve carpet cleaner and BROWN carpet.

Unhappiness is labor.

Happiness is:

Unhappiness happens.
Happiness makes it all worth it.

As It Turns Out, My Son is a Boy

He brought me a headless ballerina Barbie two days ago. 
When I presented the issue to my husband, his chest puffed up a little. And a smile spread from one ear to the other.

His mouth said, “Son, we don’t do that.”
But his tone said, “Son, Daddy’s never been more proud.”

As it turns out, my husband is a boy.
