The past few weeks it has been laid on my heart to start a blog. My life is such a circus with all that I juggle and I wouldn't survive it without seeing humor in it all. My children are all so active and creative that I must maintain this humor to manage being a single mom. Sometimes I think the greatest struggle I have as a single mom is not having that other parent to share the little things the kids do each day. I see the kids achieving great things and I want to shout it to the world. I see them doing things that are quite creative, yet ornery. And even in my frustration at the messes, I want to laugh and share it with someone.
So the idea of a blog came to mind. A place to share my joys and sorrows. A place to share the entertainment of my crazy life. A way to make someone else smile through it all.
The first step, I knew, was coming up with a name. I wanted something catchy.fun.exciting. A name that summed up my life. This morning it happened. I was getting ready for work and started the water for my bath. There was one single toy left in the bathtub from the kids' previous bath. One simple hippo. I said out loud to Reagan (other two were at school) "There's a hippo in my tub". As soon as I said the words I knew! This was it!
So I decided to google search "There's a hippo in my tub" to see if someone else had come up with this genius title! And I came across this darling YouTube video that you can view here. Too cute! Enjoy!
