She had me before hello…

I know I write about my daughter Monet every OM, but truly I am absolutely smitten with her.

It doesn’t matter that she gets up most mornings at 6 a.m.  It doesn’t matter that she often feeds the dog 1/2 her meals causing him to get sick.  It doesn’t matter that she grabs at my coffee in the morning and causes me to dump it all over my white bed sheets.

Everyday, all day, my entire heart is hers.

Last year, I hated not being home with Monet.  Dropping her off at the sitters was a daily struggle.  But now that I’ve quit my day job, everyday at home with her is truly a gift.

Monet learned a new word this week –“Happy”.  She walks around the house saying it over and over again, “happy, happy, happy”.  It’s nice knowing that what I feel inside, well, I think she feels it too.

Because people, smiles and laughter, more than anything else, is truly what makes a house a home, I hope you enjoyed this weeks “moment”…

om [one moment] meet upOM is *one moment* and is a meetup designed to notice & relish a moment in everyday life. The meetup idea was created by Linda at her blog, a la mode stuff.  If you’d like to participate in OM, just click the button and you’ll be taken to Linda’s post explaining it all.

    The push and pull of children… thinking or saying “I can’t believe you did that!” with shock or joy. What can we do except be *happy*?

    I think I’d be disappointed if I didn’t see Monet on Fridays 🙂

    Kids provide us with the best moments. And because they grow and change so fast we have to savor each and every one.

    Now that my boys are a bit older (13 & 9), it’s nice to see moments of littler ones. It reminds me of when they were that age.

    I just love that she walks around your house saying “happy happy happy”…that really says it all, doesn’t it?

    I love that your OM is about Monet. It’s the small, tender moments with my kids that most often remind me to live it the moment. Great photos too!
