I happy!

Today Asa told me “Mama, I happy”.
He’s generally a happy kid, but there was something about that moment that inspired him to feel more.
Cuddled with his mommy and new sister, he was genuinely happy.
He seized the moment and claimed it as his own.

As adults I think we have moments like this, too…
But often we’re too busy to notice them.

Find it.
Claim it.
Be happy.

“Mama, I happy.”
“Me, too, little man.  Meeee, too.”

    Asa is such a sweet boy. I love having in the nursery on Wednesday nites. I am trying to teach him to say “Miss Cathy”. I think he said it last night.

    Love this post!! And by the way, you’re putting the rest of us to shame – you know, the ones who only have 2 children and can’t make time more than 2 or 3 times a month to blog 🙂

    So happy that he’s happy and not jealous. May it continue to be so.
