Small Successes


"It’s important for moms to recognize that all the small successes in our days can add up to one big triumph."

Here are mine this week:

1) Even though we're visiting my parents, I have been keeping the girls on a somewhat consistent routine, with regular meals, bedtime, and rules. Past experience has taught me that they do so much better in a new environment when there is some consistency.

2) I am organizing and cleaning out my coupon box. I have already gotten rid of all expired grocery coupons, and I am going to make some new dividers. Look for a post about coupon organization soon!

3) I've taken a walk with my mom three days this week. It feels so good! Hoping this is the impetus I need to get back to walking regularly.


  1. Yay, Liz! Esp, #3.
    I've been walking 2-3xs a week religiously ever since I found out I was pregnant again. This is the most consistant about exercise that i have EVER been in my life. I hate exercising and always talk myself into a reason why I can't possibly right now ;) but it makes such a different in my mood and outlook that I don't know why I'm so lazy about it!

  2. I completely agree with your #1 success. When my son and I are traveling I try to keep his routine (naps, bedtime ritual,etc) as close to the one he has at home. Although, I still have a tough time getting him back on his normal nightime sleep schedule when I get back. Trying to figure out why that is?
