First of all, I just want to give a big hug to all the Happy Home Friends who left me such sweet and encouraging comments on yesterday’s post. God really used each and every one to give me some Mommy hope! Thank you for taking the time to share something – I am so grateful for your friendship and support! This Mommy business is tough stuff sometimes!
Today I wanted to share a little story with you about something the Happy Buddy said to me yesterday…
As a Happy Home Fairy, I try to make things magical for my family.
Making holidays fun, celebrating the little things in life, and building strong connections with my loved ones is what I love bringing to our home!
Besides the Lord, my favorite place to find magical inspiration is Disney World. If you know me, you know that I have a
massive slight obsession with that place.
The Happy Hubby and I got engaged there, had our honeymoon there, have celebrated many anniversaries and birthdays there, and the Happy Buddy has been 3 times since the beginning of his life.
Just before the Happy Buddy was born, the Happy Hubby took me to Disney as an end-of-my-last-year-of-teaching-we’re-about-to-have-a-baby celebration. I joked on our drive there that I hoped I would go into labor and give birth to the Happy Buddy right in front of Cinderella’s castle. I couldn’t imagine anything more magical than that!!!!!!! :-)
I even had a friend paint hidden Mickey’s on the Happy Buddy’s nursery walls.
Needless to say, Disney is important to me.
So when we were at a playdate yesterday morning and Mickey Mouse Clubhouse was playing on the television in the background, I was perfectly thrilled.
Then the Happy Buddy said something that sent my heart all a-flutter like a thousand glittering Tinker Bells.
He pointed to the screen – right at Mickey Mouse – and declared with a big grin, “MOMMY!”
I can’t imagine a compliment more magical than that. :-)
