Happiness IS Cupcakes {4/52}

When you ask Wikipedia to define 'happy', it changes it to happinessand, then it defines Happiness as a state of mind or feeling characterized by contentment, love, satisfaction, pleasure, or joy.
According to Madaline, the definition of happy is missing the following word: cupcakeI think I have to agree with her on this one.

i see {3/52}

I see:
"Ugh! Mom. Stop taking my picture. Moooooommmmmmmeeeeeeeee!" she whines as I beg to snap just. one. more. The perfect shot. The shot the captures who she really is.
I see:
a little girl so full of spunky attitude that sometimes she reminds me of a classic rock song that makes you try to dance in the seat as you drive to work. So full of energy and life that is spreads and livens up everything that surrounds her.
I see:
someone who is sometimes sweet. "your the best{est} mommy I've every had". And, someone who is sometimes sour. "No, I don't wanna _____ (and you can fill in the blank with any word imaginable).
I see:
in the many faces of my daughter of my daughter the endless possibility of dreams, aspirations, life, love, energy, happiness, tears, joy, laughter, and more Magnificent Mayhem than her mama knows what to do with some days.

Just Looking at this...{2/52}

Makes me cold! *shiver*Just because it's -6F degrees outside, doesn't mean one can not eat a Popsicle. Especially when one is NOT feeling well.

'Tis my life {1/52}

I have all these post ideas swirling in my head. They cloud my thougths. At times the ideas seem so overwhelming. But, that's really is not important.
'tis my life
I've been savoring the moments a bit more lately. Pondering what goes on around me. Stepping back. Looking closer. Making sure that I am truly seeing all that there is to see. Refreshing my spirit. Soothing my soul. Allowing knowledge to seep into the corners of my brain. Taking time to be amazed. Watching the wonder. Allowing myself to to truely savor each moment as it unfolds in front of me.
'tis my life

And, right now....A living room carpet sprinkled with fruit loops. A toddler obsessed with wearing tights with everything from pants to PJ dresses (as she calls it). Murphy kitty being used once again as a foot stool. Dirty knee socks and well worn sneakers missing their mates. Pillows that spend more time on the floor than that couch. A happy, content little girl.

'tis my life.

and, I would have it any other way.
