I’ve been trying for the last couple of weeks to participate in Momalom‘s and Bad Mommy Moments’ weekly !!! of things that make me happy and moments of intentional happiness. But my writing has been getting away from me. Friday would come and I wouldn’t be ready or I’d have another post ready to roll. But I love this idea and think we could all stand to stop and remind ourselves of the little things that make us happy. Our crazy lives can sometimes make it hard to remember to do that. And so by participating, I’m forcing myself to think about little moments of !!!.Here are some from my week.
My caveat: I am not a technical genius, so my photos don’t look all artistic like Sarah’s and CK’s. Also, when taking the photos, I completely forgot to include the little !!! cards. So I added them after the fact. But you get the picture (if you look closely).
What could be better than a cute foot? Oh yes, a cute foot lounging in a stroller as we make our way around a community garage sale. Really, they know how to kick back and relax don’t they?
And even better than hanging out together is finding a great deal at said garage sale. Can you beat a brand new bike for $15? Well maybe. You beat it with the time it buys together for two of my favourite men.
You’ve got to love a child who really gets into his food. In this case the food was ketchup. To each their own.
Warm weather has arrived. With it comes the pitter patter of bare baby feet, toddling all around the house. Big, big !!! I can’t get enough of the sound of it.
And of course, a week’s worth of !!! and moments of intentional happiness wouldn’t be complete without mentioning all of the great reading I’m finally finding time to do. I snuggle into bed when the kids are down. My kids go to bed very early, so this in and of itself is !!! I might read blogs or any of the books that make up the mountain on my nightstand, but it’s all making me very, very !!!
What makes you
