A Good Day

I've got two emotional daughters. If we let every circle of tears ruin our day, we'd be in real trouble. So Riley and I have started ending all of our emotional little girl moments with the words, "We can still have a good day." One morning on our trip to California was particularly rough. Zuzu literally WEPT for half of it...for no apparent reason. (Any mom knows that weeping is a little more annoying and a lot more pathetic than your basic crying.) I was getting frustrated and walked away from her before I said something silly or mean. (Because I am often silly and, every once in awhile, mean.) Ten minutes later, she grabbed my hand and gave me this little note. I was happy for the reminder and happier that our words have started to echo in her head. Yes, we can still have a good day. 

(Hey, have a good day.)
