The Happy Mom

Lego Fun Bracelet

I was grocery shopping with my kids yesterday,
when an older woman stopped me and said, "Oh, a Happy Mom!  You look like you are all truly enjoying each other.  Thank you for being a Happy Mom!!"

Uh, thank you, lady.  You caught us on one of our really good days.


Yes, we were having a blast "driving" our shopping cart.


Wearing our tutus (all day).


And making pinatas.

Days like these are the ones to remember.

I saw this lego bracelet online last night and just had to buy it.
I thought it was cool and figured my kids would play with it during church, and I wouldn't be worried about them "breaking my jewelry".  I also thought it would be a fun reminder of these wonderful days that we are so very blessed to spend together...just my children and me.

  1. We are so fortunate to have this time with them! I had to work, as a single parent, with my older daughter (who is now 23). Now with a 6 year old and a 3 year old, I am finally able to see what I missed and try to be sure I don't have to miss it again by being a good mom, supportive wife and frugal home maker. Even though it seems tough at times financially, I know if we can make through "just another year", the end results will be for more precious than a bit more "luxuries". Besides, how can anyone not be happy when they are surrounded by such innocent and pure joy?

  4. I was missing the car carts until I realized that all four of my kids would want to drive. And I don't think I'm talented enough to maneuver two of those things!

    Yea for a happy mom! Great compliment!

  6. What a precious day! I love tutu-days. We have them frequently. There is something about wearing a tutu everywhere that makes ordinary stuff seem way more fun. :)

  8. Making pinatas are a blast! I love squishing the glue more than the kids I think. ☺
