The Running Tally of Happiness & Fulfillment

by Brittany on December 1, 2013

in Love, lowercase b, Parenting

1. I’m thankful for the boxes of Ritz crackers dipped in chocolate.

2. I’m thankful that my kids don’t like Minecraft, because I have no fucking idea what’s going on when we play it and it gives me nightmares.

3. I’m thankful Andy is willing to live with a writer, and never questions when he finds me up at 3am sorting socks and talking about replacing all the carpet in the house with wood, because he knows avoidance is all part of the process.

4. I’m thankful headphones are a thing again, because my earholes don’t support earbuds.

5. I’m thankful Jude, Wyatt and Gigi happened, in exactly the way they did. In fact, I wouldn’t change a moment of my life if I knew it would in some way alter the exact second I was able to meet each one of them.

Three yery lovely children and three very good points! ;-)

Sorry Brittany, I meant five points!

Your Breakfast Club is good looking.

My daughter has the exact same dress! She pairs it with a gold studded belt and combat boots though.

Man… I kinda want Gigi’s outfit.

It should probably bother me that all three of your children are better dressed than I am, but they’re so adorable, I can’t hold it against them.

So cute! I just bought Josh that same brownish plaid shirt so he had something nice for thanksgiving. Target right? Roofies in the air system…

Is it wrong I am jealous of a 5 year old’s hair?


Kate December 1, 2013 at 7:06 pm

Do you curl her hair like that? I spend HOURS on my hair to make it somewhat like that… it’s so unfair! Great photos. Happy Thanksgiving!

Your kids are so cute and so well dressed!

Also, I am thankful for you. Your blog is one of my favorite things on the Internet!.

Your kids are too cute. We are trying to have kids now, and I tell my self each time we aren’t pregnant that OUR kid isn’t ready yet. Like the universe is waiting to give us the children we are supposed to have.
