"There are some who can live without wild things and some who cannot." (Aldo Leopold) Apparently, I cannot.

Shiny, Happy, Sparkly, Feel-Good Friday: 4/19/13

I’ve been out of town with the kiddos all week looking for a place for our family to live next year–We’ll be moving from CT to VA for my husband’s fellowship. And my husband is in another city at a conference for work. It’s been a nice week, because we’re able to stay with my parents at their B&B, but it’s also been a bit stressful. Good news is that I found a place for us to live and we’ve been approved for it, so that’s a big stress lifted off my shoulders. Phew!

With all of this going on, I completely spaced on asking for submissions for today’s SHSFGF post. My apologies. I’ll do better next week when I’m back to my regularly scheduled program.

In the meantime, here’s a whole lotta stuff that has made me happy this week . . .

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. My SHSFGF began in one of the happiest of ways (well, after I cleaned up dog shit in the living room): One of my best friends/cousins had a baby. Unmedicated. I’m so proud of her, and I can’t wait to meet the newest addition to the family.
