The kids and I have been slow to get back in the groove after our trip down to VA last week, but we’ve had some good moments this week.

Some things that made me happy:

This girl with her goofy faces and crazy hair!

Amy from Funny is Family (www.funnyisfamily.com): My three year old started soccer last weekend. She barely likes to walk, so I thought she would hate soccer. She didn't hate it. At all.

Julianne from MD: Baby sis is very, very excited to play on big bro's team. In fact, one of the coaches (Dad) and I had to drag her kicking and screaming from the field because we wouldn't let her be the team's designated hitter.

Thanks to everyone who submitted some happiness! Please keep it coming. Until next 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.)
