Small Successes Thursday, July 22


It’s important for moms everyone 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.

1. I mopped my floor! Boy was it ever dirty. I hate mopping, but I do love that fresh Pine Sol smell. And it’s nice to not be staring at the same old stains on the tile. Now I get to stare at new ones.

2. In an effort to de-clutter our front bedroom, Paul got the pieces of Veronica’s big girl bed out and put it together. I helped. The front room is much cleaner, which is great…but…BUT…I wish we had thought ahead about the possibility that Veronica may not be content to sleep in her crib anymore with a shiny new (to us) bed in her room. Because she isn’t. So we inadvertently started the process of getting her to sleep in a real bed. But that is another story for another post.

3. I went to bed on time once this week. Hey, one time is better than none.

BONUS: Did I mention that I mopped?

What were your small successes this week?


  1. Great successes! I need to mop, too. Thanks for reminding me!

  2. mopping is not fun - CONGRATS!

  3. I hate mopping! My husband actually did it for me this week while I was at the laundry mat. lol!
