Thatta boy

"Mom, is the tooth fairy fiction or nonfiction?" --my 5 year old.

Blogger coffee this morning. Massive baking failure. Dirty diaper of the year half an hour before guests arrive.

I suspect that entertaining well is not so much about avoiding these disasters as it is learning to roll with them.

See you later!

I find that it is better not to stress the little things (no matter how big they are)!!

I think you are right, it is all about grace under pressure, and who knows about that more than a SAHM? Hope you had fun and have some energy left for cleanup. Wish I could be there to meet you! Alison

Seems like the more hectic it is before the more enjoyable it is during. I have had guests that have come - and before they get here- I am frantic with problems that have come my way. They arrive, we greet them, sit down to eat - bow our heads to pray - and it is then - during the prayer that I realize how blessed I am to be able to have guests into my home.

Hope you have a good time.

What a fantastic morning. Thanks for starting my weekend off on such a high note!

And don't let her fool you, folks. The food was fabulous and no signs of the dirty diaper. :) She is as gracious a hostess as you would expect from reading her posts. I have never felt more welcomed in a "stranger's" home than I did in her beautifully decorated home.

It's the dirty diapers and baking failures that make us real people. Wish I could been there too... diapers and all.

If I were there, I'd laugh, give you a hug, and dig in and help! Who knows better than a mom what mornings like this are like?! I am sure you will have had a fun morning anyway! Blessings from all of us who live nowhere near Nashville....but wish we could be there!!

I think it's time to teach that boy about the fifth amendment.
