You know it’s going to be a bad day when…

…you leave the house and just as you step outside it pours down in buckets, soaking you and two toddlers to the core.

…you can’t find your car keys but your toddler son knows exactly where they are.

…you get to the car and realise that your husband has taken out one of the car seats.

…you get to the pathology unit and the phlebotomist knows you by your first name.

… as you leave some old guy looks at you with daggers and comments “Awww, the poor little girl, why’d ya have to do that to her?”

But then you know everything is going to be okay when you walk from the hospital with a little hand in each of yours and an elderly lady comments… “You’ve got the whole world in those hands of yours”.
