I debated over posting my thoughts about Friday’s tragedy in Newtown. I decided not to though, because there are so many other bloggers who have put their horror and sorrow into words in such a perfect way that I really don’t have anything to add.
The only thing I would like to say is to implore you to please send positive thoughts and prayers to everyone who has been impacted by this tragedy. Remember those who have been taken from us too soon – the innocent children and the brave adults who gave their lives to protect the kids. Give your family members and loved ones a little extra snuggle. Not just today, but always.
So today, instead of a normal blog post I’ve decided that we need to add a little more HAPPY into the world.
So here is your challenge – scroll down to the comments and share something positive. It can be a little story of a good deed, something cute your kid did or even a link to a funny story or joke. I just want this to be a place where we can put a little sunlight back into the day and a little FaLALALALA back into the holiday season.
Here’s my contribution:
My 10 month old son has said his second word (his first was MomMom) and it is obviously his FAVORITE word to say, ”Yeah”. What’s funny is that he says the word at weirdly appropriate times, even though he’s obviously too young to know what it means.
Me: Hey Jack, you smell a little ripe. Do you have a stinky diaper?
Me: Oooh, you’re cute aren’t you. You’re like a little ROCKSTAR!
Me: You look hungry, are you hungry little man?
Jack: Yeah Yeah YEAHHHHH
I totally tried to record him answering every question with YEAH, but as soon as I pull out my iPhone he totally clams up.
So it’s your turn – share some HAPPY below!
