Happy Towel Day

I just wanted to pop in and say Happy Towel Day to everyone!

What a fun day. It also happens to be my son's birthday, so I wanted to share a funny story about this day seven years ago (involving towels). 

My kids were born at home, and the first time, things were not exactly on schedule. Nothing was ready, my dates were off, and I had no clue I was in labor. I remember continually bothering my husband (who was busy murdering zombies on his computer). "I feel funny and I keep having to stand still."

Anyways, there are a lot of other details to this story that I won't share here, but when the midwife arrived she sent him to gather fresh towels and other items. I was in the middle of doing laundry for the week and had not finished. In walks my husband with an arm full of towels straight out of the washing machine. He was trying so hard to be helpful and the midwife politely informed him that the towels needed to be dry. 

Very shortly after, my incredible son was wrapped in a dolphin beach towel instead of the new, fancy ones I bought for the homebirth. I find this all highly appropriate given the coincidence of towel day and the importance of dolphins as the second most intelligent creatures on Earth. 

Not only should you always have your towel, but you should also always have clean towels!

I hope you all have a wonderful day! So long and thanks for all the fish!

We still have the towel! (And the kid...)

    LOL what a fun memory - and one I am sure that your son is going to love being related later in life...!!! (Then share with his children.) YAM xx

  2. Happy Birthday to your son Steph.
    Loved the towel story:-)
    Didn't even know there is a day dedicated to towels!! All I could think of is how not 'to throw in the towel' when things get tough.

    Also, here to share good news about my e-book. It's ready. It's free to download. And it's a short read.
    All the links for download etc. are here:

    I would absolutely love to hear what you think of it--the good, the bad and the ugly.

    Thank you and have a fabulous day.
