Joy Pockets #2

I really have to dig deep for Mon's Joy Pockets this week. It's been one of those hell weeks with the business and that usually translates to marriage strain as we work together to try and build up our little empire. But as usual, we always come through...that is a joy pocket itself!

The randomness and innocence of a 5-year old brain, "Why did God make Chinese people?" followed up immediately with, "Do hedgehogs live in Sweden?"

Pride (mine and his) in perfecting an Anteater drawing (with a sloth on his back!)
Great job little man!

Sitting through a two-hour parents meeting at preschool and understanding well over half of it!

Resisting the temptation of the junk shelf at home AND the apple pie and ice cream at the parents meeting.

My little boy's genuine excitement at new clothes, meticulously arranging them on the floor for display.

A friend's positive reaction to her family's sudden and severe financial loss.

The gift our dear Nanny T gave to herself (and to us!) by booking herself for a 2-week trip here.

Little Man pictured with his Montenegrin Nanny and her granddaughter, blowing out candles for her birthday, exactly 1 year and 2 days ago today :-)

 Share your joy pockets this week with me. And sign-up to participate in Joy Pockets.

Your children are adorable :). And the randomness of kids' thinking is quite a joy!! Please tell your son his anteater is wonderful :), and many best wishes with starting preschool!!

SwedishJenn said...

Thanks MJ :-) Though I can't take credit for the little girl..that is my son's (pictured) former Nanny's granddaughter ;-), I'll change the caption. I forget that there are some newbies visiting who don't know my story. Maybe I'll add an About page?

Carin said...

That's a great anteater- he should be proud of that! And well done you on getting a lot of that meeting. Can you pronounce "sju" yet? That's the real test lol. Love the way childrens minds work!

I think when you have to dig deep for your joy pockets you might enjoy the biggest reward for gratitude. Wishing you relief and strength after you struggles!
And I LOVE your son's randomness and genuine appreciation for new clothes. You're clearly instilling in him a deeply rooted sense of joy.

I love the randomness of a five year old brain! What a great picture, too! His excitement over new clothes brings me such joy as I can barely get my four year old son to get dressed let alone set out his clothes for display!! Have a great weekend!

What a terrific anteater drawing!

I hope you have a better week next week!
