Small Successes


1)I cleaned my sofa and loveseat with upholstery cleaner! It looked beautiful for about five minutes until my nineteen-month-old, who is suffering nasal allergies, wiped his nose on it and my dogs jumped on it, but it felt good for those five minutes!

2) When both toddlers woke up at 3 am yesterday (!) I decided to make the best of it and serve up grits and bring out their comforters and pillows, turn on Barney and tell them we were having a slumber party. It actually worked. They both snuggled and watched Barney till Daddy got up three hours later!

3) I have actually gotten a little organized BEFORE this baby arrives. How I managed to do this with the toddlers on the loose, I have no idea. As of my 36 week visit yesterday, baby is BIG, still and healthy and despite him being so big and large, I am not dilating yet, THANK YOU GOD! I am not that organized yet!

Pulling for you! And wow on the 3am handled that with grace!!! God Bless you!!!

I'm glad you are feeling so good! Take it easy, or that baby will be coming sooner than you think :) I can't believe you are about "full term!" The baby will be here, I can't believe it!!!

Have a blessed weekend!

Congratulations on your successes! I had to laugh at #1. I've heard it said that "Cleaning a house while the children are growing is like shoveling while it is still snowing!"

Peace & blessings!
