Tiny Happy Tuesday: 7

Do you want to feel a little happier? Join #TinyHappyTuesday!  The details on how you can get started are here.

  • My kids are so loved by so many people. Grady and Poppy have loving, involved, engaged, enthusiastic grandparents, aunts, uncles, and cousins. We - and they - are so lucky to be surrounded by family.
  • The air is mild and there's a whiff of spring about it. We went on a hike on Easter Sunday and it was amazing to spend some time in the trees, furiously huffing fresh air.
  • Poppy is a real music lover. She mostly shows her appreciation by drumming on whatever surface is available when her jam comes on (right now "Shape of You" by Ed Sheeran) (I'm a terrible mother). Recently, though, she's started doing the baby butt wiggle dance and it's amazing. Truly.
  • Last night, Shawn crawled into bed, kissed me goodnight, and told me I'm an amazing mother. Now, I don't need anyone to tell me I'm a good mom. I know I'm a good mom. (I also know I have my flaws. Please see above.) But it was so nice to have my partner in parenting acknowledge that I'm doing a good job. Mothering is hard work. Most days I feel like I'm failing in some part of my life. Shawn's comment gave me the warm and fuzzies and I'm going to try to pass that on.
