The past several months have been a lot of ups and downs for me. Â Between the fluctuating hormones of postpartum/breastfeeding, working in a new place, making new friends, and just getting used to working full time again, I have felt stressed and anxious far more than I ever have before. Â The reason why I titled this happy Friday is that I am just that: Happy.
I don’t mean this to sound like I have been completely down and out. Â But I am starting to feel like myself again. Â Enjoying my life, my kids, cooking, crafting, everything. Â I’m sure that the great sunshine that we have going on today is definitely helping with that!
I edited a few pictures in photoshop today:
I love playing with photoshop (and really love having my kids smile for the camera).
When I was taking the pictures of Grant, I would put the camera down and he would pick it back up, hand it to me, and say “cheese, mama, cheese.” Â He cracks me up on all the things that are coming out of his mouth now. Â Every day there are new words.
Question of the day: Â What do you do with YOUR kids to keep the occupied and entertained during the long winter months?
We have been:
- cooking cookies
- teaching Grant how to wash walls after coloring on them
- having mini nursery lessons
- singing and dancing together
- watching cartoons
- going to the Children’s Museum
- going to the gym (except when they were sick last week with RSV).
Please share your ideas!
