"There are some who can live without wild things and some who cannot." (Aldo Leopold) Apparently, I cannot.

Shiny, Happy, Sparkly, Feel-Good Friday: 10/18/13

This Friday seemed to take forever to get here — we’ve been dealing with rain and colds (bleh) and, interestingly, a praying mantis that taken up residence on our screen slider (been here all week and decided to lay her eggs yesterday). Still, we managed some good times, and I have the proof.

Some things that made me happy:

Keeping our streets clean

A collage for my son's birthday of his first year. He will be 1 on Nov.  2nd.

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.)
