People in Glass Houses

There is an old phrase that "people who live in glass houses should not throw bricks." Fair enough and I consider myself properly warned.

But here is the real truth: people who live in houses with a lot of glass (and there are 29 windows in my home) should not have children. As part of the mama cleaning tsunami this month, I have been cleaning the windows. And nearly every window I see has the tiny greasy marks of a child's fingers. No matter how often I get out the newsprint and windex, there is always a smudge to be cleaned. It's enough to drive a mama crazy.

Or in my case, crazier.

This is so classic. Thanks for making me laugh this morning.
How symbolic, huh?
