If you’re from the states, happy day after the 4th of July. I hope your kids and animals weren’t up all night as a result of neighbors setting off fireworks! If you’re not from the states, well, happy regular Friday! We’ve made it another week. 🙂

Some things that made me happy:

If you're arm has to fall asleep, this is the best reason

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.)
