Don't Worry, Be Happy

Two nights ago the boys went fishing in Daddy's hat collection...
....and gave Mommy a much needed reminder.
 Sometimes when life gets a little too hectic, I have to remind myself to slow down and smell the roses sweet little baby toes.

April has been a whirlwind of a month thus far. You know the kind...the calendars around our house are still flipped to March and I sent a check in the mail just yesterday dated 3/23/13. I thought it had a nice ring to it. I doubt the electric company will feel the same.
This morning, Bear woke up bright and early and rather than be frustrated at the bright-eyed and bushy-tailed rascal, we snuggled. We giggled. We played pat-a-cake 'til we could pat no more. We embraced the moment for exactly what it was....perfect.


This Momma's Mantra for May: Don't worry, be happy.
What's yours?!


  1. Hang in there, the weekend is just around the corner!!!

  2. what a good reminder - i'm sure sometimes it is easy to get frustrated at early mornings and busy schedules but that cute face won't be that little for too long!! but agreed - this time of the year is so busy and moves so fast!

  3. Such a good reminder! This is darling. Little bear in his hat!- so cute. I agree life gets hectic and sometimes you forget to sit back and realize the little things! xoxo

  4. This is a good mantra pretty momma!

  5. So sweet! So glad you could pause for a while and enjoy time with your little one :o)

  6. Your boys are so cute!! I love that hat!!

  7. Perfect Mantra. And much needed reminder!

  8. Love the giant red hat on Bear!! He gets the message across well (and adorably)!!! I love the mantra!
    I love that you savored the morning with your little man. Some very early mornings, my head is boppin' while I fight to stay awake to feed Piper, but it is the best feeling all at the same time. I've been telling myself since she's been born to slow it down and not rush anything.
    I hope the week has been treating you well! And I hope May is a truly amazing, happy worry-free month for you! :)
    Happy Thursday, beautiful mama! Lots of love xoxox
