{pretty, happy, funny, real}

~ Capturing the context of contentment in everyday life ~

Every Thursday, at Like Mother, Like Daughter!

My clearance shamrock from St. Patrick's day has bloomed again!  Bigger was so excited to see the flowers and count them.

So happy to be on the way to the Phillies game.  Well, I think happy had more to do with being on the train and not so much where we were going or what we would be doing.  Because we did a lot more walking around than watching baseball.  But it was happy.  :)

Some children sleep with a security blanket or teddy or some other snugglie but not mine.  My kid naps with a big ol' flashlight.  And his mama takes pictures. 

My boys like their naked time.  And they like their fruit.  And Mama likes her Coke.  It's a very serious real food flaw.  I'm blaming it on having been sick for almost the last two weeks.  But really, that's probably just an excuse.  Really, I just really like soda.

I have some kids who would love to ride on a train too. Sleeping with a flashlight? very cute!

We were just in Philly for the weekend. I bet the game was fun~ The flashlight is hilarious!

I had a couple of kids who did the sleep-with-the -flashlight bit for a while. A train ride would be a happy time indeed.

Thank you for the visit.

It's took me awhile to give up Coke too. It's been over 2 years since I've had a sip and I honestly don't miss it at all!

That is one happy boy riding the train! My now 13 year old used to sleep with his plastic sword, and I photographed it to. Those things are just too cute to not take pictures of!

My little falls asleep in the weirdest places and positions (and if I have a camera on hand, I snap a photo). :)
