And when it rains on your parade,
look up rather than down.
Without the rain,
there would be no rainbow.

It’s also Cloth Diaper Day over on a month full of Smiley Silliness. Don’t worry; it’s not a Poopy Diaper Smile. I know people think cloth diapers are way more trouble, but actually they are not! I used them for all three kids. Even washed them myself (also easy). The average baby goes through 2500 diapers a year, for say 3 years and I had 3 kids…that’s 22,500 diapers that didn’t go into landfill. Can you imagine what 22,500 diapers look like? Quite a mountain of diapers, yes? Then imagine 13 million mountains of 2,500 every year for the 13 million kids ages 0-3 in the USA alone. If that’s not enough to convince you, rumor has it kids in cloth diapers are much easier to get potty trained.
Happy Mother-in-Law Day. I look forward to being a Mother-in-Law as I have so loved being a mom. It looks to me like a whole new chance to be a mom, to double your kid count! How exciting that instead of having 3 kids, I’ll have 6! Mother-In-Laws are so great, they get celebrated again on the 28th.
Additionally, today we celebrate the United Nations. The UN was founded in 1945 after World War II to stop wars between countries, and to provide a platform for dialogue. Pretty good goal.
Happy Birthday Kevin Kline (1947) and Bill Wyman (1936). Have a good one, guys.
BTW, the Smileys on a month full of Smiley Silliness are all different than the ones you see in the Daily Smiley.
Also, just for grins, the Mushroom Smiley you get in the daily Smiley emailer is different than the one you see here.
