On the Move - Making Room
After talking about this for a while now, we decided to move our girls into the same room. It has seemed apparent to us that both the girls needed a little more company. We wondered how this would go and so far so good. Moving Miss H into Miss M's room has freed up Miss H's old room, so for the time being it has become "the quiet room" for quiet games and reading books. (The bookshelf didn't fit in their room!) Miss H LOVES reading books with family members. We read the same books over and over, all day long! She also LOVES to read books by herself so this room has become a great spot for her to enjoy her love of books.
I found her reading there this morning. This made me smile. Just having the new space also makes me smile. It's a happy room.
My Little Girl is Growing Up!
We've had a few weeks of sickness here. It's gone from one family member to another to another (thankfully I didn't really get it!). There had to be an upside to all this staying at home due to illness. Miss H (21mths) decided that she'd like to start toilet training. It has completely taken me by surprise. I hadn't even thought about starting her yet. She asked for the potty to be brought upstairs from under the house two days ago and has been going ever since. Of course this has made me smile from ear to ear.
Too Many Tomatoes
Our veggie patch has been giving us tomatoes on a daily basis. We get big ones and cherry ones so we're pretty excited because tonight's plan is to use them all to make a soft taco meal together. Getting things we've grown from the veggie patch always makes me smile but this makes me giggle just a little bit too. I've never been a huge fan of tomatoes but I'm sure Jamie Oliver would be proud of me as I've been eating them in all kinds of things since we've been growing them.

Miss M's People
I get a lot of joy out of seeing the people and other things Miss M draws. She enjoys drawing so much that there are always lots of pictures around the place for me to find. This drawing of Miss M, daddy and Miss H made me smile greatly. What makes me smile most is the stripes on daddy's clothes, their hair and the shoes on the feet. We're starting to see more detail in her drawings this week so for this creative mummy it's a wonderful part of her drawing development.
"Daddy, Miss M and Miss H".
So there you have it - my Five For Friday. It's a great feeling to be able to smile about things in amongst a week of sickness and to be honest a little bit of frustration. Thanks Debbie for encouraging me to do it!What have you smiled about in your week? Why not head over to Aspire Mum and start your list too.
