Hope you all have had a great week. And I hope this post can put a smile on your face!

Some things that made me happy:

Knowing what would happen, we thought we'd turn on the jets during the  kids' bubble bath in our tub. They had a blast!

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.)

  1. Ohhh I just want to eat that baby with a spoon! In a totally non-creepy way, of course.

  2. If you’re talking about my baby, I grant you full permission to take some nibbles. I can’t say the same for someone else’s. 🙂

  3. Loving all the shiny happiness. I wish I could remember to send you stuff. I most always have something that would qualify!
