Small Successes

On Faith&Family Daniel Bean says it is important to celebrate each small success that adds up to one major triumph.

1) I have gotten the girls allergies under control. It took locking them in doors for two days, washing everything, vacuuming daily, and giving Lulu Children's Allergy Relief medication.

2) I called another mother and finally started to reach out into a community of moms. Maybe I can make actual friends!

3) I have consistently had an outing for Lulu and Lizzy this week. It is so easy to get caught up in house work and errands and not realize that they have not done anything fun. This week we played at an indoor McDonald's play ground, we went walking with cousin's at the mall, we played with the girl next door, and we turned some of our errand running into something fun.

  1. Sounds like a great week! I struggle with making friends in all areas of life, although I've gotten a lot better these last few years. Making mommy friends is the best though!

  2. Sounds like you had a busy week. #2 is a great success. I used to have the hardest time finding mom friends when my girls were younger.

  3. Making friends is challenging. I've moved a bunch and had to start over plenty of times. It takes me forever. Good luck. I'm certain you make a wonderful friend!

  4. A wonderful list! I really need to lock my toddler inside for a few days to get his allergies under control - but he just LOVES the outdoors so much. Great job on getting runny noses and itchy eyes under control. You're doing great mom!

  5. Lulu loves the out doors too. It was hard but worth it. We are now back to sleeping at night.
