There is Sunshine in My Soul #6

There is sunshine in my soul

Fall is in the air finally in Texas! It is nice to sit here with the windows open feeling the breeze! This week has again flown by with football games, playdates at the park, and painting the shed!

Yes, remember the shed we were building in the post Heaven Help Me! Not Another Home Improvement Project?¬†We are finally to the painting part! And yes, we might have had to pull up the article for a refresher course when it was my turn to be in charge again ūüôā

I feel like life is starting to calm down a bit and I am finally headed out of mom funk. How has your mom funk gotten since finding gratitude each day?

So that brings us to what have I been grateful for this week!

Holy Cow! Who loved #WanderingWednesday last week? I had so much fun looking at all the great posts and meeting so many new bloggers! What was your favorite?

This week is so fun for us at Confessions of Parenting because we are sneaking up on 500 likes on Facebook! When we hit 500 likes you can guarantee that we will have a party to celebrate! So be sure to go like our page so you won’t be left out!

This Week’s Featured Post is:

The Questions I Ask My Kids Every Night and Why April, from Mojitos & Munchkin. April is a proud Iowan, who now lives in Minnesota with her hubby and their three cherubs. After nearly a decade teaching, she is on a break from the classroom and enjoying life as a work-from-home Mom. You can find her writing on Scary Mommy, Daily Mom, and her blog, Mojitos and Munchkins, that she uses as a creative outlet to escape the craziness that comes with life. She loves movies, cocktails, the color purple, homemade spaghetti sauce, day dates and sunny afternoons. She thinks the world would be a better place without temper tantrums, soup, the color navy, temperatures that dip below 20 degrees, and the distance between people she loves. Her insomnia allows her to pin things that she may (or may not ever) try. You can connect with her on Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter.

I love the 3 questions she asks her kids everyday! They are

  • Who did you play with on the playground today?
  • What did you talk about at lunch today?
  • What was the bravest thing you did today?

to read more head to her blog!

So without Further ado Let’s Party!
