Simple Little Things That Bring Me Joy.

Today was a hard Monday after a fantastic weekend. You know what I'm talking about? Where it seems the weekend is just enough of all the things and the people that you love and then Monday comes crashing down and you realize: the party's over.

So you have to find those little things that make you smile, that make you keep going, that make you say, it may not be the weekend but I'm gonna love it anyway.

1. 48 days and counting. 'Til his birthday.

I love birthdays (especially mine and my kids) and so does he and since he has been asking for the last 115 days how many days until his birthday we made a countdown paper-chain.


We sat down in the living room and cut jagged edged strips of paper and put all forty-eight pieces together.
Every night he'll rip one piece of the chain off and continue the countdown to his most favorite day of the year.


2. First haircut.
Just days short of twenty-seven months old and we went in for a trim. Her hair was getting so whispy and uneven in the back that it was time. She loved it of course and though her hair is less wild, it didn't age her too much.

3. The return of the bigs.

T and M returned home Friday night and it was great. M and H made brownies and played Barbies and started right back where they left off. Both kids had a great time at Disney and had lots of fun stories and adventures to share.

The break with just two kids was nice but it was refreshingly and a tad bit surprisingly nice to get back in the swing of life with all four kids.

4. Hide and Seek.

They love to play it and pretty much hide in one of three places. Under E's crib, in one of the showers or in this closet. The towels thrown all over the floor unfolded don't give their place away at all.
What's bringing YOU joy this week?
Big or small, it doesn't matter. Something's got to be making you smile.
