Happy day! I hope you all have a wonderful Friday followed by a super fun (or laid back, if that’s what you’re aiming for) weekend. Be sure to snap some good memories!

This past week flew by for me. How was yours?

Some things that made me happy:

Some days you just pray they all fall asleep! And they really are so cute when they’re sleeping! Why is that?! 😉

There's a baby in there somewhere. (Stupid magnetic curtain rods. Only good for people without kids!)

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!

  1. Oh my. I just laughed at these pictures. They really made my day. Thank you so much for these pictures. And yes I love when mine all fall asleep. But as soon as they do the baby wake up. And Summers baby boy remind me of why we need to laugh when he feel like we have had enough of our kids.

  2. I love the idea of the Shiny Happy Sparkly Feel Good Friday and I enjoyed everyone’s pictures! Thank you for including us!

  3. Love all these photos! Thanks for including us!

  4. I adore your positive nature and the photos are great! I imagine if I had magnetic curtain rods, the same thing would happen in my house.
