Happiness Is...

Pausing at the mulberry tree for a snack.

Hearing your toddler that doesn't say much excitedly say "Bubbles!" in a high pitched voice over and over again.

Watching a duck eat watermelon.

Plopping down in the chair after a long day of child wrangling, catching up on Facebook and channel surfing the television.

When your toddler poops on the potty and it is completely on his terms.

Looking through Craigslist and coming across the perfect additions for your farm (Think turkeys! And geese!)

When your generous grandparents give you one of their old phones to replace the last old phone they gave you because, well, kids...

When your sister loans you her old camera lens because those same kids got to that, too. (Apparently I can't leave stuff on the table.)

The moment your realize all the kids are asleep for the night.

Clean counters.

Reading a blog post someone else wrote that just relates so well to your own life. Like {here} and {here}.

Seeing the huge smiles on the faces of your children as your push them on the swings.
