Small Successes :: November 11, 2010

"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."

I was able to help my mom clean part of her attic this past Saturday!  It was nice to spend some time with her, and to be able to help my parents out for a change, especially after all they did to help us with our remodel this past summer!

There is something about helping to organize someone else's home that really inspires me to come home and organize my own...   I came home and cleaned and redecorated (aka: moved all the furniture around for the 10th time) the nursery.   Hubby and I were both amazed at the difference, and little Rose has been enjoying her "new" bedroom so much!

I survived yesterday!  Doctors Appointments, Dentist Appointments (including two fillings for myself), new tires on the van, and a few other errands - ALL with six children in tow.   Does that qualify as a "small" success? I'm not quite sure!  ;)  Oh!!  And we were even able to stop and take a few pictures of all the bears in town... More about that another time!

Happy Martinmas Day!!

  1. Funny coincidence... I went to the dentist yesterday and came out with a bad bill of health. TWO fillings in store for me. How about that? Guess we need to change our brand of toothpaste, what do you say?

  2. Wow! That's quite a list of successes! Great job! I love the baby's room. So sweet. Blessings and Grace to you and yours...

  3. The nursery looks great. I'm always afraid to experiment with rearranging the furniture. I suppose I should try it once in a while.

    I think #3 qualifies as a huge success. You did in a day what I would spread out over the course of a week.

    Have a great week!

  4. That is a very sweet nursery! I love the pink kitchen! +JMJ+

  5. #3 is NOT a small accomplishment at all :)

  6. Organizing or watching organizing shows gets me into the "cleaning mode" too! I'd say that is a big success toting all the kids around with you on errand day!

  7. This is great! It looks wonderful. I love all the hearts.
