An Open Letter To Murphy

Dear Murphy -

Someone (besides me) must have really disliked you. Murphy’s Law – anything that can go wrong, will go wrong. Nice namesake. Well, I hate you and your stupid law. I know I shouldn’t have left the water bottle filled with red Crystal Light within sight of an 11 month old. But if it weren’t for your law, my baby would never find a way to obtain the bottle, open it and dump the entire contents on a basket of freshly washed clothes in a matter of seconds. White clothes, for that matter.

Can’t you append your law to give exemptions to frazzled mothers on their last strand of sanity? If I have to scrub poo off the wall again within in the next decade it will be too soon.
