I am writing my first Joy Pockets post today inspired by Bohemian Twilight. “No matter what is going on in our lives finding the little moments that bring us some joy reminds us what we are here for… to love life.”

A Saturday morning with sunlight streaming through the windows, my husband playing guitar, a happy baby, and a good book in my lap as I relax on the couch.
dad plays guitar for toddler
*
Looking out the window with Baby to see several beautiful birds feeding in our bird house for the very first time.
*
Baby’s laps throughout the house holding some of his favorite items – his dada’s (clean) boxers.

*
Baby’s love of books – especially my picture-less library books.
Toddler carries heavy adult library book.
*
The many, many times each day that Baby stops what he is doing to come over and hug me while chanting Mamama.

Haha – I hear “My Mama” in my head all the time – even when I sleep – because I love it so much. <3

Those are the sweetest little moments, Charise. Those are the moments that truly matter. You have a beautiful family and happy life full of little loving moments….cherish them.

My youngest just turned 9 and he still stops whatever he’s doing few times a day just to say “I love you mommy”. Those are my sweetest moments,

Thank you, Bibi!

To hear that from a 9 year old still must be INCREDIBLE!

I’m so glad you joined up, too :) Such a lovely idea, isn’t it?

Your Saturday morning sounds absolutely perfect, and I have to smile picturing the joy in your house as baby toddles about with favorite things in hand. I hope the week to come is even more joy-filled than this one!

We love how music creates a mood in our home too. We do not play ourselves, but try to expose the children to various genre of music. Big B looks as if he may have an ear for music, we’ll see….

such joy!

This was so sweet. I really felt each moment. It’s so nice to enjoy all the cute little things… like Baby walking around with dad’s boxers. That’s hilarious!
