Small Successes


Faith and Family Live highlights the parenting-related successes of bloggers each Thursday. Here are mine for the week.
Ready, these are really small:

1. I did laundry today, no ironing- come on now, that would be a colossal success.

2. I managed to get my oldest son to camp today despite being so tired that I put a package of yogurt into the toaster oven by mistake this morning. (Baby Bigfoot slept with me, and kicked me all night).

3. I discovered a nice, old fashioned butcher who gives my kids treats while he cuts meat for me. Now I have better planned dinners for the week, and healthier cuts of meat.


Todd Lemieux said...

Awesome. I would love to get a butcher like that!

Also know what it's like when the kids kick. Terrible.

Katie said...

Good job on the laundry!! I do not iron unless it is an emergency!

Elizabeth Kathryn Gerold-Miller said...

Was it really hard to adjust to being home again? When I went to a homeschooling convention years ago I thought my kids were on their worst behavior the first week I was back, as if to punish me for being gone for 2 days.

Loren Christie said...

Todd, Oh it is much worse for dads when the kids kick you at night.

Hello Katie, thanks!

Elizabeth, Well, the first day was rough for me getting thrown back into everything. The kids did a bit of whining, too. You know the lines- "I want daddy. That's not how Daddy does breakfast. Rules! This is the worstest day ever!...etc."

Caity said...

Aw, that's great. Number three really made me smile. We have one of those in our town that we found and he's the best.

I'm SO late reading this...I did Mr. Linky last week, but did not have my favorite time to just sit and read these....really proud of you. Thanks for taking the time to share!

Dear Internet Traveler,

Welcome to my writer's blog, started about six years ago for fun. Over time, the writing I have posted has ranged from personal reflection, to Long Island history research, to tall tales for my own amusement, to feature articles for local newspapers. As you can see from topics listed here, I travel in many mental directions in regard to interests. Click on the tabs and labels to explore my strange mind which senses that you may be having a criss-cross day. If so, perhaps this blog will distract you. However, please note that if you tell me my blog is beautiful just to get me to advertise rhinoplasty surgery and cheap drugs from Canada in your comment, I will ask the gods to give you a tail that cannot be concealed.
