Reasons 2 Be Cheerful

Even on our dullest of days if we all think hard enough we can find something to be cheerful for wether it be for the fact that we enjoyed a morning coffee and had 5 minutes peace or if our child came home from school proudly wearing a sticker given to them for good work, well my week hasn’t been a particular brilliant one but after thinking really hard i found some faulous reasons to be cheeful

  • Oliver has extended his vocabulary with some news words, breadstick, pencil, blue, red, green are a few of them
  • I managed to get through the first week back at school without drinking too much Red Bull
  • After having weeks of disrupted sleep down to Oliver cutting a new tooth he eventually slept the whole way through the night helping to feel a little bit more refreshed
  • My Mummy came to visit with my little brother, it was only for an hour or so but it was lovely to see them
  • Joseph’s reading is coming on so well and he is beginning to enjoy reading through books and learning new words
  • Joseph and I are off to watch Jack and the Beanstalk this weekend as a gift from his godparents
  • The boys won a Skylanders Bumper pack from Britmums for their pictures taken with their Skylanders
  • Call The Midwife is starting again in 2 weeks time which means i get to see my son on television again soon 🙂
  • I have three very gorgeous and healthy boys and what more do i need!

So there are my reasons to be cheerful, what are yours?

This is what happiness means to me!

When your child says to you that they are at their happiest when their holding your hand!

Seeing my newborn child for the first time, nothing could ever beat that moment.

Having a sweaty little hand in mine, no matter how dirty and sticky they are, the smallness and chubbiness of them just makes me smile.

Waking up to three gorgeous smiles every morning, I never knew how much a smile could do to me.

A warm cuddle from my mum, she’s the best!

Being told that I’m the best mummy ever by my children.

Seeing my son achieve the best that he can, he puts his all into anything he does.

Watching my boys grow into perfect little gentlemen, I am so lucky to have boys that are so well behaved and caring

Listening to my children playing together, they get on so well with each other and have the same sense of humour.

Hearing my boys giggles, they are so infectious.

Being told by my 4 year old that everything he does is to make me happy! (maybe not the messy bedroom)

Laying on the sofa with all my boys and watching a Disney film, my Sunday couldn’t be much better.

Family meal times because i love having all the family together.

A nice mug of hot chocolate with lots of cream and marshmallows

Trying to achieve the best I can

A smile from a friend

Spending time with my mummykins, I adore my mummy and if I am the half if what she is I know I’m going to be a good mum. She is the best role model anyone could ask for and the best cook.

Knowing that my OH is really trying to put wrong things right in our relationship

Spending time with my family

Saturday morning coffee with my partner

Being told out of the blue by my little boy that he loves me

Bedtime! After such hectic days I love laying in my bed on lovely crisp sheets and falling asleep, which is just about what I am about to do!

I’m sure I could go on for ever but these are probably my top reasons for happiness.

What makes you happy?
