The quilt that my mom and I are making!! It’s cut from old jeans that my mom has been storing for years. And while we were laying it out I decided where it’s going to go when we’re done: as the bedspread for Lucas’ full size bed when he’s done with his crib.
Seeing my moms reaction to Lucas’s antics. I think he’s hilarious and love when other people do, too.
Well I have to say, so far this “100 Happy Days” is doing it’s job to change my point of view. Now, as part of my bedtime routine, I’m all: brush teeth, wash face, post my happy on the blog. I lay in bed with my last thoughts being about all of the things that day that made me happy: coffee in silence before Lucas woke up, a clean house, watching my toddler destroy the clean house, sewing with my friend, drinks with an Irish family, a night out with ex-pat moms, etc. so tonight, my happy is that this idea of finding something that makes you happy every day for 100 days, and that it’s actually making me happy again. Lack of snow helps, but I think I have to credit this a lot of forcing me to look at everything positively.
And because I heart my little destructive toddler, he’s a close second. Here’s what happened with I left his dresser unattended: it spit out all of his clothing. Must be time for a new dresser that behaves.
I was having too much fun enjoying myself yesterday to stop and blog. So here’s yesterday’s happy thing(s): a new haircut and another Special Wednesday with my 20 pound boyfriend at the children’s museum.
And for today’s happy thing, I just found this online and love it. It’s a really quick read by a humor mommy blogger as an answer to someone’s rather rude post to her regarding her body: A Letter To Anyone Unhappy With Their Body
It never hurts to have a reminder that we’re awesome just the way that we are.
Smile on, friends.
