The Little Things

As busy mothers, sometimes it is hard to pick out the little things that make us happy on a daily basis.  We are running kids to school, feeding the baby, cleaning the house, making dinner, go, go, go all day long.  But we should all stop to see these little things, that while they may seem insignificant in a passing moment, are truly what our happiness is made of. :)
Here's what I stopped to smile at this week...
 
A happy baby at his two month doctor's appointment.  All smiles! 
...That is, until those crummy shots to the leg.  {sniff!} Made me so sad for this little man.
 
A wonderful husband who brings me flowers for no reason at all...
except to let me know he loves me. :)
 
 As a self-proclaimed TV addict, catching up on The Vampire Diaries was very happy for me this week.
{That is, until one of my favorites got killed.  Not cool, not cool at all.}
 Coffee.  {Need I say more?}  It's what gets me through the morning. :)
 Baby smooches!!! :)
{and for momma keeping it real with my crummy hair, roots and all, no makeup, looking like total crap.  A day in the life, people. ;) }
 Family game night!
{Seriously, who knew Risk could be so much fun?  And so addicting?}
 It was Andrew and my first time playing!  John was quite the teacher of world domination.
 
 
 One smart little cookie that I have raised.
Andrew got an A+ on his report about Teddy Roosevelt.  Go Andrew!!!!
You sure know how to make a momma proud. :)
 
What made you smile this week? :)
xo!

Yes! The little things are what make it all worth it. Those precious moments, that sweet cup of tea, or that gentle 'I love you'.
