Small Successes Vol 10/3


So celebrating small successes can be good for anyone--but especially a mother of a monkey on speed-ahem...a little boy named Par. Join me over here and celebrate three of your small successes with us each Thursday!

1. I have started to get up at 6:15am for quiet time and then walk with my friend. "Started" is the key word here--hopefully I'll have the small success of "continued" next week!
2. I have kept a clean/dry sink for 3 weeks now! This is amazing to me--my entire kitchen has stayed very clean/neat and I know it is because of this small success--it makes all the difference!
3. I made the appointment to have Violet "fixed" and I am taking her this morning. I will admit, I was supposed to have them both fixed, but Tiffy went into heat last week--which was a wonderful reminder that I needed to do it. So we'll have to wait on Tiffy.
4. there are only supposed to be three--but the outfit for Par was definitely a small success! Actually, a rather large success--but I am so excited about it (see previous post)and I am so thankful for Gigi's smocking fingers!

Yesterday I saw the Easter outfit my mom (Boo) is working on for Par--it is BEAUTIFUL! There was a bit of a thread issue--but I believe it will be or has been resolved. Either way, Par is going to look like an angel this Easter--which will definitely help to balance out his behaivor recently. Some of the more "precious" things he is doing include: slapping me repeatedly in the face, hitting (open hand) other children--preferably infants in carriers, saying "no"--but really he just shakes his head and says "nah nah nah," running away from me--which happens most often before he gets in the bathtub and when he stops running he looks at me and starts to tee-tee on the floor (or rug, he's not particular)--this always ends in giggles on his part--not so much mine. If there is one thing for sure--even though many people think he is a girl because of his flowing locks, petite frame and contagious grin--this kid is ALL BOY!

What great successes! Keeping the kitchen sink clean and dry is a feat unto itself!
Waking up early before the family is such a peaceful, wonderful thing to do! I feel like it makes the whole day better.

Congrats on your accomplishments. With baseball starting up, NONE of those things make my list of accomplishments. I'm luck I get out of bed on time, much less get up early. Hope you have a great week!

God Bless,
