Hi there! I’m Irene and a mama bear to 4 of the most incredible kidlets in the world and a super cute teacup Maltese named Bianca!
I am on a mission to find something that makes me happy and/or brings me joy every day and to share that with you! Incidentally, the title of the blog came from my oldest daughter when she was almost 3. It had been many sleepless nights and having 3 out of 4 baby bears in diapers was taking its toll. She cradled my face in her little hands and asked: “Mama, are you happy and laughing?” in the cutest little chipmunk voice! Needless to say, that expression has stuck and we still use it today, over 14 years later.
As long as you’ve read this far, you may also care to know that I love to write, paint and scrapbook stories of my kids…call me a creative junkie! It is the one place where I can journey into myself and find peace in my world. I come back rejuvenated.
Thanks for stopping by…
