Happiness is…

Stressful week…so I am trying to focus on the positive.

Things that made me smile yesterday:

Karli and Chase keep arguing about whose Mother’s Day gift is better. Two years ago Chase made me the same Mother’s Day present that Karli made me this year. I use them as coasters on my desk. He says his is better because the dots are all in the right places. They were made with dipping their fingertips in paint. Karli’s says hers is better because it is more beautiful because it has much more colors and dots on it. I love them both equally! Plus, I didn’t tell them this, but Chase actually had my help with his where Karli did hers herself!

Mother's Day gifts, past & present

Karli has this corner in my office where she colors, writes, and makes things pretty much every morning before she goes to school. Today I found that she covered her table with a piece of pink tissue paper. She said it was her tablecloth. Did you notice that the two coasters underneath the paper roll?

Tori kept knocking down the kitchen gate on the smaller doorway whenever we left the house. I finally had Ken install a different gate on that is attached to the wall. No more using the expandable gate that takes the paint off the walls! As long as we have dogs we need these gates for when we leave for long periods, as much as they annoy me, they save my carpet.


POOL IS OPEN!! Nevermind that it has been in the 50’s here lately. Soon the warm weather will be here and we will be ready to swim! Only 4 more weeks of school after this week!

    I WANT THAT POOL! Focusing on the positive is so important and so hard at times.
