So, I was at a party recently and one of my friends, who is actually friends with Soleil Moon Frye (I know!), was going on and on about how amazing and down to earth Soleil is…but, honestly, I just nodded and thought, “sure she is.”
(Remember that post I wrote about judgmental moms?)
Though I’ve always found Soleil lovely, I had visions of nannies and an entourage of help.
Then, I read Happy Chaos and I felt like I needed to write a personal letter of apology to Soleil.
My friend couldn’t have described Soleil more accurately.
This book amazed me.
And proved me completely wrong.
The entire focus of my blog, in these small moments, is to capture the smallest of moments…the moments that can so easily slip by if we aren’t paying attention to them.
Happy Chaos couldn’t have spoken to me more.
If I’ve learned one thing as a mom, it’s that our lives are made up of special moments. And if there is one piece of advice that I’d give any parent, no matter how young or old their children are, it would be to take more pauses and appreciate all those little moments. Each one is such a gift. Because we can’t possibly give one hundred percent all the time–but we can give one hundred percent to a moment.
Soleil? If you’re reading, is there any chance that you’ll forgive me?
I. Love. This. Book.
