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.

1 – Saw both Marie & Therese off to school today, and didn’t cry! When did they grow up? I could have sworn I was just swaddling them just yesterday. (Grade 2 & Kindergarten)

Marie, Grade 2, 7yo

Therese, Kindergarten, 4 yo

Hannah, Cutie Pie, 2yo

Nicholas, Little Man, 6 mo

2 – Have been trying to get into a more prayerful habit lately. We’ve added the Angelus at noon. A great way to refocus in the middle of the day.

3 – Kept up on laundry for a change, both washing and folding clothes. Mind you I’ve recently gotten some really cool detergent. Ever hear of Soap Nuts? Pretty cool stuff. Also CleanB Detergents. Who knew laundry could be yummy smelling. (I’m currently trying out the Oat Milk and Honey scent).

This has been going on for the last month but Hannah is in the throws of potty training.  It is going well, just a few accidents a week.  (She even asks to use it)  She took the longest to start, but the fastest to figure it out.

Come share your small successes with the people over at Faith and Family Live.
