Happy Kids, Play: The Weekly Kids Co-Op

I randomly ask my kids for a kiss throughout the day because no matter how much I have to clean up after them, no matter how much noise they make, no matter the intensity and frequency of sibling squabbles, bottom line is I am their mother and heck.. I love them!

Looking at the wonderful posts linked up each week at the Weekly Kids Co-Op, it’s very clear that there are many children who are very loved.  As I visit various blogs linked up to the Weekly Kids Co-Op each week, it is also very apparent that kids at play are happy kids!
