I’m working on being in a better mood because lately I’ve been off my game.
There’s value in being truthful on the ‘ole blog because life is life and it’s not always pretty instagram photos and happy status updates.
It’s not always smiling, happy children and perfect meals.
Sometimes, life is annoying.
Sometimes your bangs get cut too short and you look like a cross between an 8-year-old and a Beatle.
Sometimes your clothes get accidently shrunk in the dryer.
Sometimes the day-in, day-out monotony gets to you.
And this is all ok to talk about because it doesn’t mean I’m not grateful.
It doesn’t mean that I don’t love my sweet little family.
It just simply means that sometimes life is …eh.
It’s not horrible, but not overwhelmingly awe-inspiring either; what with the ear infections, meetings, doctor’s appointments, oil changes, lack of sleep, whining toddlers who break eggs while sitting in the cart grocery shopping and don’t tell me about it until it’s far, far too late…
|The egg squisher. GUILTY.|
So yeah. Life isn’t always rainbows and butterflies for everyone all.of.the.time.
And well, maybe it’s better that way because it makes us appreciate the incredible moments that much more.
And let’s be honest, there really are so many of those moments.
|Ice cream Friday. Look. Lila looks 8.|
|Crazy sisters posing.|
|Bonding with Daddy.|
|Sweet, sweet faces. Ah, cousins.|
|Cupcake eating cousins|
This is such a good reason to choose happy.
This is, too.
Here’s to a better week.
