Just Before Bedtime

...this is what we were doing.

While it is definitely not conducive to sleepiness and quiet-time, it is definitely good for the heart.

I haven't laughed that hard in months, I'm ashamed to say. It took only a few minutes of swinging a pillow around and laughing hysterically to forget just for a moment that I was a grown-up with a job, responsibilities, and stresses in my life. To forget how stressful bedtime normally is, with the trying to get everyone pajamaed, brushed, washed, and tucked in at the end of a long day.

It was good to forget.

It was better to make those memories.

The boys giggling so hard they can't hold onto their pillows, everyone falling down.

These are the memories to hang on to. This is how bedtime should be.

Go visit Leigh vs. Laundry for The Happiness Project and post a photo of something that makes you deliriously happy.



  1. It looks like hubby is being creamed. lol!

  2. I think I'd be laughing my head off too. We like to have tickle fights before bed. It helps to end the day on a good note.

  3. I LOVE THIS!! I want to bring my minis and come for a night like this too! The action shots are priceless.

  4. That first photo captures the moment perfectly! Makes me laugh just to look at it : D

  5. Exactly. Ours involve a great deal of wrestling and running around the house.


  6. I love this so much :) I'm glad you let loose with a pillow fight with the kiddies~that looks like it does a lot of good for the soul.
