Hi.

Welcome to my place.

I write about about being a 40-something mum of five wonderfully exasperating children, attachment parenting, my adventures in the kitchen, and whatever else comes to mind.

Joy In The Simple Things

Last night I took Boy#3 to the park while his brothers went to Cubs. He had his first encounter with the slide (which led to many subsequent encounters in the ensuing 20 minutes). By the end of the evening, his immense joy and excitement in going down the slide over and over had me in stitches. [youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4GqE4csxWJQ]

This morning, the sight of all the pretty colours on my clothesline made me smile. Cloth diapers are a frequent source of simple joy for me.

What are the little things that have made you happy today?
