Grateful Heart

I am incredibly grateful for moments like this...
My ninety-one year old Grandfather with my 24 week old son.
Here they are sharing a laugh over baby M's Thomas the train.
I'm blessed to have them both in my life and I learn so much for each one of them.

My grandfather inspires me to make art and go after everything I dreamed of.
He never let me say that I can't do something.
He encourages me to try hard at everything I do.

Baby M looks up at me and I feel like I want to give him the world.
I plan to give him all that I can and then some.

My aim is to keep them... proud. happy. smiling.

I am filled with a #gratefulheart when I think about these two.

Things My Husbands Says (No.3)

Being a preschool teacher, I come home talking about things that include bathroom stories.
One of those conversations recently lead to this gem my husband said on Potty training...

Husband: "When we train M to go potty in the toilet, we will use cheerios."
Me: "Like treats for my dogs?!?!"
Husband: "No, we'll throw them in the toilet and pretend they are aliens for him to shoot down."
Me: "Where did you even get that idea from?"
Husband: "I just came up with it."
Me: "...and then we can give him M&Ms like my Mom did with my brother."

It's a little early for potty training, but at least we have some ideas. ;)

Another Grateful Monday

...so I don't do this, but this perfectly describes my love for food.

It's Monday, which means it's time for me to write about a few things that I'm currently grateful for.


My son's recent high pitched giggling noise.
It makes me laugh which makes him giggle even more. Cheesy motherhood moment.


My husband's goofy one liners.
He's running around the house referring to Baby M as his Gucci and his line "Got a long shift at work but I'll make it through my posting lots of selfies. YOLO." Cracked me up completely.


Martha Stewart's line of glues.
A girl is becoming addicted. Decoupage glue? Tiny glue pens? This white glue with a top that screws on... I need it all.


Wendy's Chocolate Junior Frosty.
A small bit of frozen heaven enjoyed during my lunch break today.


The Whisper App.
I enjoy reading other secrets and skimming through the posts when insomnia strikes.


Sleep, sweet sweet sweet Sleep. Why did I fight naps so much as a kid?

What are you Grateful for today?
