Because I goofed and forgot to ask for submissions yesterday until very late in the day, this week’s post is a little more bare than usual. Still, there’s some pretty cute stuff in here. Take a gander, won’t you?

Some things that made me happy (at least one of my sons makes an appearance, can you spot him?):

Because the Stuffie, the doll, and the dragon need to be buckled in on the car ride and reading a book.

Woke up one morning and this awaited me on the couch. (They had gotten up with their daddy and then went back to sleep.)

And some things that made you happy (sorry again for my late photo request):

Chelsea from MO: My son Harry insisting that he stand at 4 months old. And he happens to be standing in front of my very first Mother's Day gift given to me by his older brother in 2010.

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.)
