Thank You Mom – 2012 Summer Olympics

Did you have a good weekend? I bet most of you are thinking, “yes, but it was too short!” Ahh, story of our lives huh? =)

Well, if your cup of coffee or tea this morning didn’t help, hopefully I can give you some cheer to start your day off.


Have you been following the Summer Olympics at all? I absolutely love watching the Olympics, but this weekend I am guilty of missing most of the early events. Taking a step back and looking at the Olympics as a whole, this is one of the few moments where the entire world comes together in a positive way. It is incredible and encouraging to see that even with differing beliefs on many issues today, the human race can put these differences aside and unite not only for tradition, but for universal support.

Whether representatives from your country medal or not, while watching the various events, it is difficult not to respect how much hard-work and dedication it takes to even qualify for the Olympics. There are athletes who train year round just to have the honor of representing their country in the Olympics with little hope of bringing home a medal. Participating is the victory, so in reality, there are no losers!

I can’t even imagine what it takes to raise a child with such an athletic gift where the Olympics are even a possibility.  The amount of time and dedication is multiplied as parents – working around your child’s schedule to be able to take them to practice, attend their games, support their fundraisers… the list goes on and on.

Uncontrollable Laughter

What’s one of the best things about kids?  THEIR LAUGH.  I loveeeee how Jackson and Riley laughs!  Their laughter echoes the entire room and it’s so adorable to hear how uncontrollable it is.  I miss the days where I used to laugh like that…you know…laugh until you pee? just kidding. =)  But I did used to laugh until I cried!  I’m wondering when’s the next time I will ever laugh as hard as Jackson does in this video.  You know what they say — Laughter is the best medicine, so true!

“I love people who make me laugh. I honestly think it’s the thing I like most, to laugh. It cures a multitude of ills. It’s probably the most important thing in a person.” ― Audrey Hepburn

I hope you had a good LAUGH!

Happy Little Kiwi and A Little Learning for Two

I love the blogging community!  It’s so amazing who you “browse” into within the blogging world.  I discovered Carly from Happy Little Kiwi when she liked one of my posts.  With that, I went onto her blog and LOVED everything about it!  The crafts, the pictures, the products, and her adorable little girl, Kyra!

Her Ice Eggs post definitely caught my eyes!  I want to do this with my nephew and niece.  Jackson and Riley LOVES to play with regular ice cubes   Don’t you think it would be super fun to play with these ginormous ice rocks?!  Especially in this hot summer weather!  After reading about Ice Eggs, I discovered A Little Learning for Two.  A blog dedicated to crafts, products, and other fun stuff for kids.  Check both Happy Little Kiwi and A Little Learning for Two out, they’re amazing!

Isn’t it so great to find other people around the world with the same interests and passion as you do?

Keep blogging and do what you love.  Someone like me will appreciate it and love it as much as you do!
