A box of Oxy Magic.
A simple plastic tub.
And any one of the seventy-five toothbrushes that we've accumulated in the past 4 1/2 years!
I can get almost any stain out....and I feel like a new woman!!!

I either need to contact a contractor about increasing the size of my bathroom door, or research the possibility of a recovery program for hair bow addiction.
I'm thinking the latter is most logical!

And it only takes about 300-400 milliseconds to get from the beginning of the blink to the end.
Why then does it seem like days pass in the midst of each blink? It seems like the past 5 years have passed in just a handful of blinks.
It seems like just yesterday that I was flat on my back on bed rest, pregnant with triplets.
It seems like just yesterday I was frantically trying to figure out how on earth I was going to get out of the house with three babies in tow.It seems like just yesterday I was preparing formula by the pitcher's full and preparing bottles by the dozen.
It seems like just yesterday I was changing diapers in an assembly line fashion, emptying diaper pails hourly.
It seems like just yesterday that I tucked three, 10 month old babies into bed, before heading to Target to buy a pregnancy test that I was sure would show a plus sign, even though it had cost a fortune to conceive the first three.
It seems like just yesterday that I picked up the phone to my parents, and through streams of tears, asked them if they were sitting down.
It seems like just yesterday that I was firmly exclaiming, "No this is not funny! I'm just getting the hang of having three babies in this house. There is no way we can add another!"
It seems like just yesterday that I was waking up each morning, wishing it was bedtime, because there was no way I could take care of three toddlers when I needed to be hugging the toilet numerous times a day.
It seems like just yesterday, I walked tearfully through our front door with baby number four, wondering how on earth I was going to cope with four children under two-years-old. And then, I blinked a few times....and here I am.
Three of my babies are starting kindergarten in the fall, and the fourth will continue in preschool.
It never ceases to amaze me that even with weeks full of days that feel more than 24 hours in length, the years still pass in a blink.
