Wow, I really needed some smiles today and you all came through. You all are simply the best! Enjoy this week’s cute overload!
Some things that made me happy:
First, just click the following link. It’s a video of my youngest. (Sorry, I can’t embed videos directly in my posts just yet.) I promise you will not be able to watch this without cracking a smile! Oh, and if you’re in a public place, you’ll want to turn your volume down some. But make sure to have it on a little, because you need to hear it. Enjoy!
Ok, on with the photos . . .
Cousins watching a movie. (Soooooo happy to live close to family now!)
More pool fun (with a “ship” they found) and some impromptu huggies
My great helper girl!
Getting ready for his new preschool next week.
Do these need any explanation? 😉
What can I say? The baby was being super cute this week.
And some things that made you happy:
Julianne from MD: The 4th generation of kids on our family’s farm outside of Burlington, WV. It was wonderful to see my kids have fun in the same barns and fields I did as a kid; Saturday at the National Zoo reminded me of the pure joy of a child riding on a carousel. And how much cooler that you get to ride on a lady bug, iguana and an oryx?
Kathy from IL: My little super star, and my little man with no fear!
Jean from Mama, Schmama: My daughter kept dropping her beloved Monkey out of the stroller on our walk today. My son appointed himself Monkey’s rescuer and kept an eye out for when it went overboard. This is him running to return Monkey to his sister.
From Does This Match? I really didn’t think today’s outfit could get any “better” but shoes are required at Costco.
Phyllis from Just Bcauz: Katie (20 months) and Jeb (3 months) – she adores her little brother!
Bethany from OH: Xavier rocking his shades on Virginia Beach. Luna & Ayden and the suit of Armor @ Great Lakes Medieval Faire. And Ayden taking the plunge in Conneaut Lake, PA.
Chelsea from MO: These are my 3 boys, each photographed at 3 months old. They are now 3.5 yrs, almost 2 years old, and almost 4 months old.
Megan from NJ: Donuts is how I make grocery shopping a little less trying.
Jennifer from TX: Brotherly love!
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.)
