Love the little things
It’s Friday! Hurray! Time to link up with Butwhymummywhy for her fabulous “Love the little things of 2014”
This week I am reading a blog, MumturnedMom. Sara is a Scottish mum who has moved to America with her husband and three kiddos. As a mom turned mum myself there are so many things I can relate to with her. The more I read her lovely blog and speak to her the more I think we are very similar in other things too. It’s a great blog so check it out.
We are also reading (for the umpteenth time) Room on a Broom by Julia Donaldons and Axel Scheffler. It has become one of Buba’s favorites as well as Mommy’s. Sometimes there are books you really pray your kids won’t ask you to read again and again but this one, I never get sick of myself.
With my mother-in-law visiting, she is in charge of the remote. So this week we happened upon the show, “the undateables” on channel 4. I notice it’s series 3 so it must be catchy. As I sit and watch it, or rather listen to it in the background as I blog, I can’t help but think, is this cruel? Obviously the people would have had to agree to being on the show, but did they know what they were really getting into? With various disorders, and putting themselves out in the spot light to find love just for our mere entertainment. Are we being entertained by people with disorders or are we being entertained by love? It’s a fine line.
As a huge country fan living in the UK, I am determined to bring as much country here as possible. So I will share another one of my favorites, that I am listening to this week. This is is a great collaboration with Tim McGraw and Taylor Swift called Highway Don’t Care.
This week I am attempting to catch up on Missy Moo’s first year scrapbook. I normally do digital scrapbooks for all our memories but for the first year of each child’s life I like to do a proper scrapbook, the old fashion way. With fancy scissors, and embellishments galore, the pages become thick as books.
I am not wearing anything particularly interesting this week, or wearing any new products that I can rave about but I was very excited to buy Missy Moo a new hat from Next yesterday. I know, easily entertained. She just looked too cute in it, not to share.
I will leave you with a question: Why do little boys have to play so rough? My two year old boy is becoming a WWE wrestler right before my very eyes and mommy seems to be his new subject.
