I had a positive encounter with a stranger today. I have blogged in the past about people butting their nose into my parenting. Today this sweet old man came up to me and said "Look at your beautiful, healthy children, you must be raising them right" It was so nice to hear that instead of criticism. I guess he didn't see the fries my kids were eating. Hope everyone is having a truly sunny Thursday. I seem to be and for some reason I feel really calm about the house today.
