A New Feature: Today's Best & Worst

I've been wanting to blog the last couple of days, but I haven't had much to write about. However, last night I watched the Primetime special on Randy Pausch, the writer and presenter of The Last Lecture, and I got a little inspiration for days such as these.

Every night at bedtime Randy would ask his kids what the best and worst part of their day was. I think it's a great thing to do with your family, but I thought it might also be a good way to stay connected when I'm suffering from a little blogger's block. Or when I've just run out of time to really write anything. So. Without further ado...

THE BEST: Chattin' and laughin' it up with the moms at the library and I had a great conversation with my mom.

THE WORST: For a few hours this evening, I was a bit of a basketcase. Crying for no reason. Cleaning frantically. Blaming Casey for every imaginable negative detail of our lives. Pouting. Whining. Declaring today my ugliest day EVER! Behaving quite irrationally. What can I say, girls...it just ain't the best time of the month. Thankfully, I have a patient and...intuitive husband (who is not to blame for hardly any of the imaginable negative details of our lives...just kidding, honey ;). He made me feel better. And...so did Project Runway. :)

Alex's aunt did that with her son when we was little. She would go in and talk with him as he was going to sleep and ask him "Tell me one bad thing that happened today." And he would. Then she would proceed, "Ok tell me one good thing that happened today."

I thought it was so neat and a great way to keep up with your kids on a day to day basis. Thanks for sharing!!
