A 30 Second Glimpse

OK - here is the scene.

JiJi (blind) wants to put her own fingernail polish on, just like her sisters.

Towel on the counter, so whatever polish doesn't make it to a human surface doesn't adhere to the counter.

Meanwhile, mama figures it is a perfect moment for an iced/blended coffee drink.  It is afternoon, and she needs one.
check, check

"Mama, what doing?  Gonna be loud?"
"Yes, but I'll tell you before I turn it on."
She understandably doesn't like loud noises and, well, what does any kid do to block out a loud noise?
check :-(

Green fingernail polish in the ears and on the hair.
"Sweetie, I told you I would let you know before I turned it on!"  "sorry, mama, sorry"  Cleaned her up and turned to put more yummy ingredients into the much desired coffee (no, no brandy in the house, rats!)

A door being shut in the background alerts me and sure enough, now there is now green fingernail polish on my bedroom door frame.  Forget the coffee, I'm gonna take a swig from my homemade vanilla I think!
(just joking!)

Yup, moments like these are all too common, and I wouldn't trade them for anything!

OK - gotta get my coffee before something else happens!

Just what I needed today....a cup of laughter. Gotta love these girls. I wouldn't trade a minute of it either. Blessings to you all!!

Hello. I'm glad you commented on my blog so I could find you. It's great to connect with another mom of a visually-impaired child. Funny story, and I can relate!
