I don’t want to jinx it, but I believe the fog has lifted, albeit temporary.

Such is life.

Today was one of those good mom days. Do you know the ones I’m talking about?

The sky was a perfect blue. The clouds were brilliant white and puffy. You remembered sunscreen. Everyone ate three square meals. Your freshly bathed kid falls asleep quickly with a smile on her face, tired from all the fun you had together.

91 degrees.

Yeah. It was one of those days.


  1. Oh I’m so happy for you! Yeah for good days!

    *fist bump*

  2. hooray for you! that’s lovely to hear. the last two were that way for me (hence my recent blog post.) love those days! cheers!

  3. Sounds perfect.

  4. Ah, a good mom day. Glad you had one… Now send the mojo my way?

  5. Success! I love when we are victorious.

  6. FANTASTIC!!! Those days are pretty amazing. I had one, too. My little guy caught his very first firefly. I love good mom days.

  7. The best part about good days is they are infectious on the days that follow. All you gotta do is keep a little bit of today’s sunshine in your pocket for when the clouds start to appear again.

  8. Oh, I’m so glad!! You are a good mom and you deserve to feel like you are all the time!

  9. Love a good Mum Day! Hope there is lots more on the horizon.

  10. Oh, quite teary here. It’s been the same for me. It’s wonderful… 🙂


  11. You know the “one day at a time” drill. SO you could probably have seen this GREAT DAY YAY coming but I wanted to put it out there a little extra. YAY!

  12. I’m so happy the fog is lifting at your house. 🙂

    And I just want to say Thank You for writing your way through. Reading your words is helping me to claw my way out of the depression that has been weighing so heavily on me.

  13. Umm, I want that swimming suit in an adult size…

  14. Is that a slip and slide I see in that picture?

    If it is you are clearly the most awesome mom ever.

    (My mom would never let me have one because somebody could break their arm. Puh-leeze.)

  15. Awesome! Those are my favorite kind of days.

  16. I love those days. Why don’t they come around more often?

  17. Love it. : )

  18. this makes me happy.

  19. Those days are amazing and I am so happy that you had it, friend!

  20. I love how the joy of the day comes through that photo – and I’m so glad the fog has lifted.

  21. Glad that the fog as lifted. Days like those I wish I could hold onto forever!

  22. Michelle says:

    The joy (and the concentration in the one with the hoop) are adorable.

    Can I have a day like this please?

  23. Fabulous. For me these days are much easier to find when wet backyard fun is part of the deal too!

  24. I love those days. Add a slight sunburn and 30 minutes of frisbee and yes, it was one of those days…

  25. Those are the best days.

  26. You know, not a Mom, so I don’t ACTUALLY know what you’re talking about. But I think that all people have days like that, where it all comes together, and they just do well. I’m glad you had one. Looks like that sweet girl had a good time! 🙂

  27. Yay for good days!

  28. Ohh Betsy! says:
