Shiny, Happy, Sparkly, Feel-Good Friday: 5/3/13

5 Comments

Apologies that this week’s SHSFGF post is a little on the light side . . . I’ve been a bit distracted with a family emergency and only remembered to ask for submissions a few hours before I typically sit down to put these together. With that said, I’ve still got some feel-goodness for ya! Ready? . . .

Some things that made me happy:

Ice cream for dinner (and a 3 yo pirate)!

Spring has sprung!

And some things that made you happy:

Lisa from The Golden Spoons (http://www.the-golden-spoons.com/): Last week I got to spend a day with my 5 year old super cool Rapunzel!! That’s the only good thing that came from her having the stomach bug! 🙂

Julianne from MD: Instead of making dinner last night, the kids and I went for a walk. The little one brought her little one, and "baby" had her first experience at the playground. I have to hand it to the little mommy, she took good care of baby the whole time...except for when she launched about 3 feet off the end of the slide. Oh, wait, the same thing happened to my little one the first time she went down that slide. Oops!

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.)

  1. Which is my favorite?! Probably lovies in diapers and Kristina’s picture. This is a great community gratitude journal!

  2. The high heels in bed are pretty fabulous! Thanks so much. 🙂
