A few quotes from our cute little buddy B in MD:

“I love all the colors of the rainbow, mommy!”
“I love you the size of a swimming pool and airplane!”

From Erin in MO: Two achievements . . . Completed her first 5K (ran the whole thing and beat her goal time by 2 mins), and her 5 mo rolled over for the first time (notice how proud his big sister is)!

Fridays on Raising Wild Things are Shiny, Happy, Sparkly, Feel-Good Fridays! Since parenting can sometimes suck the  life out of me, I wanted to do these posts as reminders of the good, the great things that happened during the week amid all the crazy, exhausting, sometimes frustrating, sometimes maddening, sometimes head-exploding moments that seem to linger in my memory and can put me in a mommy funk. What makes you happy? Please share!

I'm a mamma to four little wild things and can't imagine life any other way. (Well, most days.)

  1. I have some happiness, but since I never really take pictures of myself I have no photo evidence, but I wasn’t miserable today. Yay! 😉
