What's been making me smile...

  • Mothers' day, and all the handmade presents and drawings I got. And the massage! Thanks Babe!
  • Window shopping for maternity clothes online
  • Friday family nights! We eat a wacky dinner then play games and color together.
  • We have been getting Nick Jr. in the mornings now. Hello, Diego and Dora! I hope it lasts a while!
  • Spending the day with mom, just talking and eating.
  • Sunny weather, at least for now!
  • "The Office" bloopers on youtube
  • Kenny and Abi and their scary faces
  • My indoor flowers are sprouting! And my bean sprouts are growing good. At least I'm not totally incapable of growing something!
  • Chatting with my sisters. I need to do that more often!
  • Getting positive feedback on my kids' behavior. It is worth the hours of discipline and teaching put in!
  • Nate is about to complete 1st grade and can read and write in Mongolian. His English is lagging a bit behind but not as much as I thought it would. He pushes himself and can read anything in both languages if he really wants to. His math skills are great and he loves numbers. I'm so proud of him!
What's been making YOU smile? Please share!

here's what makes me smile...
knowing i'll be with jimmy in 2 weeks
the way muji purrs when i kiss him - even when he's sleeping
sunny days with blue skies
a true sense of peace about all the upcoming changes in my life
getting to spend my last few days in mongolia in darhan with YOU!
