Words to Live By

I just ordered this print for the sun room (my office) in soothing seafoam greeen. I LOVE it. Being the mother of 5 boys, I think it is fitting and a good reminder for me and my rowdy little crew!
In fact the day I recieved it in the mail, I was carefully taking it out of the packaging tube when my littlest man ran over and grabbed it. I think he thought the tube was some sort of sword and he was just getting in on the action! Before I knew it the print was scrunched under this giggling chubby toddler.
My initial reaction was some serious ANGER as I stomped over to retrieve it. Luckily before I got too mad I remembered the message on my new print, and it made me laugh right out loud.
How hilarious that I needed to put this slogan to use within minutes of it's arrival in my home! Now it hangs framed in a prominent spot wrinkles and all and some days it has become a little mantra in my head ...Keep Calm and Carry On...Keep Calm and Carry On... Ha ha!

Here is the interesting history behind this poster:
