Yesterday Beanie and I were reading some short stories from Days with Frog and Toad. We were reading one entitled Tomorrow. Basically, the gist of the story is how Toad wakes up and see what a mess his house is and is in a bad mood because he has so much work to do. He pulls the covers over his head and decides to worry about the mess tomorrow. Frog comes over and points out all the stuff that Toad needs to clean up (nice friend, eh??) and Toad gets more and more depressed. Then, finally, Toad realizes if he does all the things he needs to do tomorrow today that he won't be worrying about them anymore and he can do what he wants tomorrow too.
Thanks for the lesson Frog and Toad! Funny how a children's story can tell a Mama just what she needs to hear on a certain day.
