An Attitude of Gratitude #21

They're going "in the car." The balls are wheels. Because, well, duh.

Welcome to my Sunday Attitude of Gratitude! Read here to find out why I started this weekly gratitude post.

I know. I’ve been a little absent with AoG. Life has been getting in the way and I haven’t really been feeling it. But like Christian said, I need to push on through and remember the little things that I’m grateful for. November is the month of thanks, after all.


So this week I’m loving:


  • My health, and that of my family.
  • Days in which we play outside all. freaking. day. In our pajamas, no less.
  • My awesome, hard working, loving, and bad ass husband.
  • Butterflies.
  • Mother’ Day Out, and getting to spend two mornings a week with just Zoe and me.
  • The fact that Rachel and Claire have more than gotten accustomed to their MDO class and absolutely love their teacher and classmates.
  • Loving and helpful MDO teachers who help me get my circus together when it’s time to go home.
  • Claire’s newfound love for Lightening McQueen.
  • November: October is my favorite month, but November brings Thanksgiving and the anticipation of spending time with our loved ones. And eating. Lots and lots of eating.
  • Kipper: the girls’ latest on screen obsession. We’d never heard of it until we cancelled our cable and started streaming Netflix, but they think it’s the best show evah! I have to admit, it is kinda cute.


 What made you smile this week?

    1. Alison! I an so horribly behind on my reader, and I poked through your blog and saw your announcement! Congrats! So exciting. And yes, getting out of that first trimester is such a relief.

    1. They LOVE it. I think it’s cute too. They all talk in British accents, so it’s hilarious. For a little bit they called it “Kippa” because that’s how they pronounce it in the show. 🙂

  1. Lol on the British accent thing, my kids have such confused accents overall.
    Loving all of the Thanks posts this month, something we so need to take time to do …
    (I have Thankful Thursdays up actually, you will love my guests!)(pardon the quick plug)

    Have a great week!

    1. I try to remember to write in my gratitude journal every night before I go to bed, but seeing as it’s not even on my nightstand right now, I’m not doing so good. 🙂

    1. Do you guys ever come back to the States for the holidays? Is it hard to find the traditional stuff over there?
