What?s that saying again? Oh yes, happy parents = happy children. What do you think? It all sounds terribly simple doesn?t it, but I do believe that there is an element of truth in there. Not enough to solve the ?no green veggies past these lips? phase perhaps, but on the whole I?ve noticed that the happies tend to be catching. And little ones tend to catch everything, don?t they!
So, this month is all about celebrating you and the things that have made you happy. Here are some of my top reads that will leave you laughing, crying and nodding along with glee.
Someone?s Mum ? The reason I burst into tears in my son?s future school this morning
Starting school for the first time is huge. I don?t know about you but I?m thoroughly petrified knowing that September is getting closer by the second. But what if your little one is extra special and needs a bit of support. What if knowing that your little ones future school understands this, is really everything. *You may need your tissues for this one.

Family Fever ? 10 things that make me happy

We know that it?s the little things that make our hearts flutter, but what about the biggies? There?s something so satisfying when everything falls into place as if by fate.

If you are lucky enough to have found your calling in life, then you will know that every day is a reason to rock that smile and show off your happies, loud and proud.
Rhyming With Wine ? The stat race
And finally, here?s food for thought. Are you in the blog stat race? It?s hard not to be isn?t it? Even when you think you?re not, somehow you actually are. This brilliant post takes us on a roller-coaster ride of emotions and back to where it all began. Happiness.
