From Tracie: A Surprise Happiness

A Surprise Happiness

When you are a mom, you never know what you will find if you leave your kid to play while you try sneak in a quick shower.

A new haircut.

Missing cookies.

Folded clothes that are no longer folded.

A "Mom Is In The Shower" opportunity can attack any room, especially if hair washing and conditioning is involved.  Sometimes, nothing happens. I think those are planned....to lull moms into complacency, that usually shows itself as a repeated shampooing before conditioning.

But every once in a while, the "Mom Is In The Shower" opportunity is sweet and it causes smiles and hugs.

This is what I found:
Decorated Computer Keyboard

A little black puppy that "eats computer viruses" (she is my new guard dog)
and a decorated keyboard.
A surprise happiness moment.

(Yes, that is a In Pursuit of Martha Points mug! You know you want one.)

What is making you happy today?

  8. My surprises are never sweet and cute. They typically consist of hours of cleaning that cause need for another shower! Your surprise was awesome though!

  18. What a sweetie you have! My little guy has never left anything sweet for me when I try to grab a quick shower. It's usually food all over the floor, he's stacking items and climbing on furniture he shouldn't, all his clothing is out of his closet and drawers piled in the middle of the floor, etc.

    I am usually scrubbing my head and breaking my neck trying to see and hear what he is up to. LOL!

  19. So sweet!

    That definitely beats the time my daughter got into some paint and dumped it all over my bedspread and bedroom carpet. Not a good day.
