beaches & pools-time for a new towel

When my daughter was 6 months old we started swim lessons which was amazing to watch her splash around and giggle. She is now almost 2 and her teacher wants to move her out of mommy & me class into the preschool class. Although it is a huge honor to my daughter (you have to be 3 1/2 to move up) I just don't think I am ready! Sure she can swim and jumps in by herself (sometime I swear she has gills) but to swim with the "big kids" this early is terrifying!
Swimming has definitely changed our lives for sure including my new obsession with swim towels! At first I would wrap her in the infant towels but they were so thin I felt like she wasn't dry at all (I swear a paper towel could of done a better job) I searched all over stores for a nice hooded towel that would not be so long that my daughter would trip. Well I came up with nothing so I started an online search which led me toO'Deliteful on etsy. The towels were very reasonably priced and very cute.  Our towel has lasted many washes and swim lessons and still looks like the day it arrived in the mail. My favorite part about the towel is that the hood part fits my daughter nicely and it is long enough to wrap around her yet does not drag on the floor.

one toddler crisis after another

Here we go-my day in a nutshell-if anyone out there is having "one of those days" would love to hear it (hey we make each other feel a little better)

So woke up-cat spilled my glass of water in the night into CLEAN laundry...looks like that needs to be redone,sigh
toddler tantrum because she can't eat chocolate frosted donuts for breakfast-crisis over we compromised on fruit loops.  toddler tantrum #2-wants cereal in the red bowl which is the dishwasher which is currently running (I promise you she is the world's greatest she just wants to flex her muscles today)
Morning finally coming to an end and all seems peaceful-we have a friend over for a play date. All is going well they are having a great time and I decide to open a pepsi and sit for a few seconds when my daughter yells "bathroom!" I know what you are thinking-"oh no her daughter had an accident" but that is not even close. I go with my daughter to the bathroom leaving her friend in the playroom one room away. Well my daughter does her thing and here is what I return to....a toddler covered in pepsi, a couch covered in pepsi, a couch covered in pepsi, and the kicker my laptop covered in pepsi! As soon as our little toddler friend looks at me she drops the can adding a carpet now covered in pepsi. So now I am using my husbands laptop...lets just say I am not a PC and he is-why are these buttons in all the wrong place-I need my MAC!!! So ladies (and gentlemen) that is my fine day so far (its only 2) Lets hope it can only go up from here.....
