Hey, It's Okay

I got this idea from Glamour magazine. You can link up any day of the week. All you have to do is make a list of what you're okay about. Simple! Please do not link up a post that has nothing to do with Hey, It's Okay. It's rude and I'll delete the link.





Hey, It's Okay....


....to be happy to have my kids home! They stayed with my parents last week. Well, my son only stayed until Wednesday. He doesn't cope well without his Xbox. But my daughter stayed for the week!



....to be thankful my parents paid for Natalie to have private swim lessons. She did a really good job and worked on her strokes and diving. Plus the turns. Her teacher even said she was good enough to join a swim team but Natalie was all, "I think I'd be too tired."



...to be taking Natalie to see Eighth Grade. It looks like it'll be a great movie. She's going into sixth grade, so we'll be at that point before I know it.



....to have finally finished The Handmaid's Tale season 2. I understood the choice June made at the end but still. I shouted and had a conversation with my cat, who was beside me. "But think of the repercussion, Max!"



....to have found a mermaid at the beach.

  2. Right now I can only say it's okay to let go when my son is always grabbing the device I would be working on. I had to leave the post half for his games (that too on my FB profile)

  4. That's the cutest mermaid I have ever seen - not that I've seen too many but she's definitely the cutest. I remember when my kids would spend the week with my mom and dad during the summer. I would miss them but they always had such a good time and precious memories were made.

  6. That's a great picture of her at the beach. I love having my kids home, I never get why some parents say they can't wait for kids to be somewhere else.

  13. You are so lucky to have found a mermaid... Now that the kiddos are older. I prefer for them to be home. I start to miss them not being home when they go visit my parents.

  23. It's so refreshing to see a post highlighting the things happening in your life that you're happy/okay with. Life is too short to let uncertainties and negativity ruin the beauty around us.

  27. I love her mermaid costume. My daughter wants one too. But, she's not good at swimming and I am afraid she could drown wearing it.

  36. I always enjoy when you do these it's okay posts Amber! I think many people don't realize at the end of the day...it is okay! I taught private swim lessons for a while and I think that kids do learn a lot better that way.
