Money well spent

Yesterday was one of those crazy days. We started off with a 2 hour delay (AGAIN!!!) which throws the whole normal flow of the day off. Once the kids got on the bus, Hannah, Aiden and Jonathan and I headed into town for a few appointments. Once all of the running around was done and it was determined that it was too late to try to get Hannah back for school, we stopped for a quick visit with my mom. After she did her grandmotherly  duty and filled them with pringles, we headed over to Mema and Poppy's house. We spent a little bit of time with them and the added bonus of my Aunt Joni. Mema did her great-grandmotherly duty and not only gave the kids some candy, but sent them home with a big bag to share with the other kids. It was time to go home and of course I needed to stop and get some gas. That was when I decided to do something that I never ever do. I paid $7 for a carwash. Normally I would never do that because it seems like such a waste of money, especially in this winter weather. But given the fact that I literally couldn't see out of any of my windows other than the front windshield, I figured that it was necessary. The salt and dirty snow and crud finally won out. The best part of  the car wash was Jonathan. Oh my word, he was hysterical! Every time that the big arm thingy that shoots water out, would go past his window, he would squeal. He just kept saying over and over again that it was the best thing EVER!  His giggles were infectious and before I knew it we were all laughing and shouting.

Best $7 I have spent in a long time.

Car Wash giggles...watch it here.
