Silent Saturday: The Fun Places We Find Our Children

As a mom of young children, there are a lot of fun (and a few not so fun) unexpected surprises that occur throughout the day. Lately I have been finding evidence of my children’s presence, personality, and interests in random places.  For example:

Green craft sand in the hand soap


Pirate sword in silverware drawer



Water balloons in hair accessories basket


Happening upon little surprises such as these puts a smile on my face and joy in my heart! However the next two surprises weren’t quite as much fun when I initially discovered them….although I am laughing about them now. 🙂

Nail clippers in dreadlock wax


Dog treats in coffee grinder


What are some of the fun places you find your children?

Happy Saturday All!!

    Finding joy in the little reminders of our kids seems to be one of those things that all mothers share. I remember when my son was an infant — His stuff wasn’t everywhere yet. You might not know a baby lived in our apartment unless you went into the bedrooms — and his little rubber ducky sat on the edge of the bathtub. It made my heart swell each and every time I saw it.

    Nowadays, my son’s stuff is everywhere, but there are still occasional unexpected reminders that make me smile. I recently found a toy bowling pin in a kitchen drawer, similar to your pirate sword. I left it there, thinking that it might make my husband smile down the line.
