Small Successes


"It’s important for moms to recognize that all the small successes in our days can add up to one big triumph. So on Thursday of each week, we do exactly that."

Here's my list for the week:
  1. I completed the clothing season sort for one child (hey, small successes, right?). Marianna was low in the spring/summer hand-me-down department, so we squeezed in two quick shopping trips, picking up 5 t-shirts, 2 prettier tops, 4 pairs of shorts, and 1 pair of "skimmers"--knee length shorts. We called the trips "special time", and it really was fun to be out as just the two of us. The wardrobe choices were refreshing, too--plenty of inappropriate clothes, but also plenty of long enough shorts and shirts (down to the hips!).
  2. I organized the spice rack. This should probably count against me, since the time should have been spent on some other more pressing project, but it was uplifting nonetheless. I wiped off YEARS (maybe a decade!) of dust, threw out a few oldies-and-not-so-goodies, and put it all back in pristine alphabetical order. Too organized, you say? Well there are 84 little containers on that rack, so I need all the help I can get!
  3. I baked a three-tiered cake. Does it count for this list if I've already posted it? Let's hope so, because that's all I 've got, folks!
