Today's gut-busting laugh

... courtesy of Miss Penny.

Yesterday afternoon our house had a moment of sheer chaos. I was sitting on the couch trying to nurse two fussy babies. Emily was tired, and acting a bit rotten. The dog was running around in circles, and then the phone rang. I was really feeling tempted to begin repeating, "Serenity Now!" like Cramer from Seinfeld.

Right in the middle of the chaos, Mindy, who was laying on the couch beside me, put her foot in my face and said, "While you feed two babies, yell at the dog, and discipline your four year old, do you think you could massage my feet?"

We both started laughing as we looked around at the sheer chaos. And I realized that sometimes having a total brat for a sister is just perfect! :)

I'm a huge believer in birth order...there's something about the second sister being able to bring humor to unlikely've got that in Mindy, and I have it in Denise. We're lucky I guess :)

That Minny Penny! :) Always good for a laugh. Tell her hi for me. When is everyone coming back to California? We need to get everyone together for the holidays or something. Hope all is going well. Love you.
