Stay Shiny: A #100DaysofHappy Update

Have we all been taking the time every day to find one thing that made them happy? Are we spreading our positivity around? Is the law of attraction working for you yet?

No? Well, we are only on Day 21 today. Keep working at it!

This week wrapped up MiniSir’s exercise, so we focussed this weekend on spending time as a family. My Day 19 (Saturday) #Happy moment was when we were walking through West Edmonton Mall (on a Saturday, I know) looking to do a few errands, and I managed to find shoes for an upcoming army formal event that are actually heels but don’t make me walk like a trucker. YAY! Granted, the heel is about a half-inch high, but still – they qualify as heels. Big win. We also managed to exchange a sweater I got over Christmas that was unravelling when I opened the present for another nice sweater that seems perfectly intact. I picked up a birthday present for my sister, we avoided Target, AND we managed to get in and out of the parking lot unscathed. HUGE win there.

Sunday we spent hanging out around the house, having late brunches and whatnot. Grunt decided that yesterday was the day he was going to bust out his words, so not only did we get a vigourous “Da-dy” from him, but were also treated to “Ba-ma” (Batman). Someday he may learn “mummy”, but I’m not really holding my breath. Interestingly, his babbles have begun to sound like certain phrases too. I could have sworn he said “yes please” to me the other day after I asked him a question, and this morning he gave me a hug so I said “Thank you for the hug”, to which I am positive he replied, “You’re welcome” in baby babble. My child is either a genius, or I may need more adult interaction. I’ll let you decide which one.

This week I am looking forward to some coffee dates and a real live actual date for Valentine’s Day, where MiniSir and I will be going out without the baby for dinner. We will see if I can communicate in anything other than baby language by then, and if we still remember that we like spending time with one another. Scarrrrrrrry.
