Simple, random, sweet, cell.
That’s what InstaFriday is all about.
What’d you do this week?
Our local Christian bookstore is going out of business and I scored this book which I’ve been planning on reading for ages.
So far it’s stretching my perceptions of Heaven…which admitedly weren’t based in Scripture…just what I thought seemed right. D’oh.
I’ve long been fascinated by the Behind the Music, True Hollywood Story kind of things…and you know what?
I like the kid. Not his music so much…but I have a lot more respect for him, his family, and the way it all went down. I just totally assumed it was another “Toddlers and Tiaras” kind of mom pushing her kid. Totally not. That made me happy.
Henry loves to commandeer his dad’s spot in bed whenever he’s out of town.
A book, a Transformers shirt, and an ICE CREAM in bed?
I win the Best Mom Ever Award.
(Maybe not the Best Wife Ever Award, but you can’t win ’em all.)
“Mommy! Look at that funny phone over there! Why is it so big???!!!”
Ah yes…the technology gap is wide. While part of me is sad..the other part of me realizes how grateful I am that my kids won’t ever (at least not likely) need to bum change off strangers when they need to call home because something went wrong.
Why I didn’t just pick up a box of cookies at the grocery store when I was there that morning?
Because I’m silly and ridiculous and somehow think that’s not enough.
Silly expectations we place on ourselves…especially when I *really* didn’t have time for this that day.
Pink pancakes, strawberry milk, happy heart plates and cups = Valentine’s Breakfast for the kids.
Simple, easy, free.
They were super excited.
I’m learning more and more everyday that childhood is so magical…and it’s really about the simple things. You don’t have to buy anything elaborate…heck, you don’t even have to buy anything at all…it’s just about making an effort and making it different.
