On the bright side… three ice cream dishes, three spoons and an ice cream scoop were washed.

On the other hand… I was about the turn the dishwasher on and there was totally room for all 7 items.

On the bright side… I got to listen to three girls giggle and laugh and splash for at least a half hour with no whining or fighting.

On the other hand…the clean up took me at least that long.
On the bright side…my kitchen needed scrubbing anyway.

On the other hand…I wasn’t ready to do it at 7:30 on a Sunday night when I think I’m coming down with Bria’s bug.

On the bright side…my girls are learning to do chores with a happy heart.

On the other hand…I’m out half a bottle of dish soap because of their wastefullness.

On the bright side… I got some really cute pictures and a blog post out of it.
Bright Side Wins!!!
