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

“It’s Friday, Friday, Gotta get down on Friday . . .” (Can you name the singer? Also, sorry for getting that stuck in your head!) Hope you all had a great week!

Some things that made me happy:

Amanda from AL: Our son Arlie, who turned 2 in Feb, just loved visiting with his family in Texas last month. He didn't want to get out of Papa's pool. He followed his 8 year old cousin around and got to meet his new baby cousin. We took him to the Forth Worth Zoo and several parks in the area. It was a great family trip!

Melissa from MD: There’s nothing like running through a sprinkler; pond inspectors; not quite sure about these s'mores things.

As always, 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.)
