Things That Make Me Smile

I’ve been struggling for the past few weeks with some serious mom burnout. It hit me quite suddenly and I was relieved to hear this weekend that I’m not the only one struggling with this. In order to try to lighten the mood I looked for things that make me smile right now. In no particular order, here they are…

Cute moments I capture in a picture.

The Office. Nick and I started watching it this winter and some friends loaned us seasons 1-4 so we could “catch up”. We watched 4 or 5 episodes last night (almost done with season 2!) and were laughing constantly!

Watching the boys learn new things. Look at how well they’re balanced on these “big boy” swings!

Red Sox hats. Need I say more?

The Mom Song by the kids music group Go Fish. I came across this song yesterday on YouTube when looking for fun videos for the boys to watch.

Time out with Nick (which we hadn’t had since early January). Yesterday a couple of girls from my high school small group volunteered to watch the boys for us so that Nick and I could attend the Royals/Tigers game with some friends! The seats were awesome (5 rows from the visitors dugout!) and the game was terrible if you’re a Royals fan, but it was a good time.
