Small Successes


1) Today we have a two week old! We survived a week by ourselves as a family of five. Three of which are children. Our house hasn't fallen into neglect. Every child is being fed, bathed, dressed, etc on schedule. We have been blessed this time with a newborn who loves to sleep and boy does that help with two super-active toddlers!

2) My bathroom is somewhat organized. As organized as can be expected with all the newborn clothes in there, but that is where the organization started. We welcomed this newborn sans dresser, so we are using wicker baskets to hold his clothes. I keep them rotating and so far, we have not gotten out of control. Yeah!

3) I had a semi-date night with my husband. The kids were still awake but last night we watched Paul Blart Mall Cop, which is too violent for kids and inappropriate for them as well, (ours were watching their own movie in another room), but we enjoyed laughing at some of the silliness and liked the endearing relationship between the main character and his daughter.

Happy first week on your own! Wow. My parents are leaving next week and I am dreading it. Glad you got to sneak in a comedy with your husband! :)
