Wow, when was the last time I did a Feel Good Friday? I could go back and look, but let’s face it, I’m too lazy. I’m actually forcing myself to do a FGF this week, because I’ve had a really shitty week. Can we say smoke and oil spewing out of the hood of my beautiful Acadia this morning? Can we say dead battery the night before? Can we say 5 inches of snow on it’s way tonight? Oh wait, that could be a good thing…please baby Jesus let there be a snow day!
Moving right along. The positive, we’re focusing on the positive, right? Here we ago…in no particular order, here are a 5 things that made me feel good this week:
On Sunday morning Alivia’s second top tooth fell out! Ok, I admit, I pulled it out. But, she told me to! I have witnesses. Right after it happened I played the “All I want for Christmas is my two front teeth” song, and she was so excited about it! On another note, playing the tooth fairy is creepy. Just sayin.
Speaking of Christmas songs, my children are currently obsessed with the song “I saw Mommy kissing Santa Claus.” They heard it in my car last week, and they were confused and laughing hysterically all at the same time. They’re still trying to figure out why in the whole wide world Mommy would kiss Santa Claus!

I heard about the Elf on the Shelf tradition last year from Semi-Slacker Mom, and now we have started it this year. The girls named our elf “Buddy” after the elf in the movie “Elf.” The best thing about Buddy is that he totally creeps Shawn out! I have to admit, Buddy’s eyes do seem to mysteriously follow you, maybe he’s possessed?
Today after I picked Alivia up from school, she told me “Mom, just so you know, Lainey lost her gloves on the bus this morning. She already got them back, because she realized right away that she lost them. But, I thought you should know she lost them.”
Oh silly Alivia! Are you trying to take the attention off the fact that you have lost your lunch box, your boots, and broken your shoe all in the same week? Nice try sister!
This weekend my Mom is taking my girls and I, and my sister and her daughters to see The Nutcracker. It’s put on by a children’s ballet, so I know the girls will all love it! I’m so excited!
P.S. I’ve been a totally bad blogger and commenter lately, I promise to try harder! Ok, maybe not. But, please forgive me!
