Shiny, Happy, Sparkly, Feel-Good Friday: 5/24/13

8 Comments

It’s been a little dreary here in CT the past few days, and I have to admit that our cranky meter has been off the charts this week. So going through all of these pictures while putting this post together was just the thing I needed to un-crankify myself. (Thank you spell check, I know that’s not a real word.) Hopefully this post brings a smile or two to your lips as well.

Some things that made me happy:

Some light gardening (aka, rolling mulch from spot to spot)

Oh these eyes and eyelashes!

And some things that made you happy:

Kelley from OK: Her boys sweeping up water after the storms, being goofy, and wearing their Paw's tshirts as jammies. Cuties!

Julianne from MD: My son had such an exceptional day today, I made the executive decision to have ice cream and french fries for dinner. I love having an awesome son!

Beverly: Helping me clean. (Don't worry, I didn't let him lick it!)

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.)
