Tonight, I don't want to talk about the time we were on vacation and followed our GPS for over an hour to find some Krispy Kreme donuts. (Did you know that Krispy Kreme doesn't make donuts with peanuts and therefore doesn't have a high risk of nut contamination?)
I also don't want to talk about how I've been tracking Lauren's calorie intake and adding more elemental formula through her feeding tube.
It's really not fun to spend my blogging time whining about how hard it is to cook our meals from scratch or to pack a picnic lunch.
I'd rather overcome these challenges with a smile on my face.
Tonight, I'm going to stop talking about the food allergies and refocus on the rest of our lives - the little moments that I'd like to remember from this week.
A Saturday morning spent coloring with Lauren:
(after I took a picture of Lauren with her picture, she took one of me)
Baby birds by our front door:
The favorite blanket tossed on the couch near his boy scout materials:
Impromptu birthday party for one of Lauren's American Girl dolls:
(thank goodness for the $1 wrapping paper I found at Target one day)
My personal blog editor:
A slushy day for no particular reason:
Thursday afternoons at the playground:
I'm also linking this post to the Friday Favorite Things at finding joy. I'm making a special effort to see the smiles in our days instead of the challenges.
