Welcome to Happy Home Fairy! If you are new here, I started a new series called Fairy Favorites – sporadic posts celebrating the little things in life. Thinking about these small blessings has really helped me keep my focus on what He has done in my life, instead of on what He hasn’t.
It is my prayer that in sharing these little things that you, dear Reader, will be inclined to consider your own little things, in hopes that the exercise will inspire a grateful heart in the day-to-day mothering madness.
A few months ago a friend of ours was having a birthday and all he wanted was to have a Duck Dynasty marathon to celebrate.
The Happy Hubby and I don’t have cable, we get like 2 channels and I think they are in Spanish – ha!, so we were like, “What’s Duck Dynasty???”
Well, 5 minutes in and we were ready to call the babysitter and tell her she was spending the whole night with the boys because we had some serious TV watching to do.
I hopped on Amazon and bought the first 3 seasons the second we got home.
This show is HILARIOUS.
I just love how redemptive each episode is. In a world of stressful-I-need-to-break-out-my-fat-pants-because-I-can’t-watch-without-eating-everything-in-the-house shows (ie. 24), this show really brings a light-hearted and fun end to these crazy days of parenting little ones.
About every 6 weeks the Happy Baby catches a bad cold.
One day a friend of mine left this on our doorstep and HOLY TOLEDO it gets the snot out a hundred thousand times better than those funny bulb things they give you in the hospital.
I could not actually use it myself for the longest time because it totally freaked me out – it was the Happy Hubby’s job (he is superhuman and has no fear) – but when we went to New Jersey without him and the Happy Baby was dreadfully congested, I had to put on my big girl pants and do it.
I am now proud to say that I am a booger-sucking professional.
We could not live without this product.
Well, my friends, I finally entered the 21st century.
I am now an owner of an iPhone.
I knew this day would eventually come, but I have been resisting it due to my slightly Amish nature. I am a bit scared of change/progress.
I liked my little 1922 flip phone.
The guy at the phone store handed me back my old phone when he was finished transferring the data and said, “You might want to put this in the Smithsonian.”
I love that I can take photos that are larger than the size of my thumb.
But I am having a hard time with the texting. The Happy Hubby came upon me texting the other day with my one forefinger and he was like, “No no no no no. Time to put your thumbs into training. You can do this, babe.”
Our Summer Bucket List called for the making of some M&M Cookies.
The Happy Buddy and I had so much fun baking them and they turned out great.
He asks to have one about every 15 seconds.
Finally, the other great thing about the iPhone is that I can take videos.
And capture moments like this…
Pretty amazing, huh???
Total Ephesians 3:20, amen?!
*Note – This video is proof that I am still trying to figure out the whole iPhone thing.*
