Small Successes

FaithButton

Join the readers of Faith and Family Live! as we encourage one another in our successes both big and small. Here are a few of mine:

1. I removed the staples holding together the backside of my son's basketball uniform and replaced them with honest-to-goodness stitches. This is big, very big.

2.  In light of the fact that Ainsley has a surplus of dresses (including one that is a 5T), I exercised heroic self-control and did not purchase the cutest dress in the history of Hanna Andersson. Even though it was a great price (for Hanna Andersson). Even though I could sell it on Ebay and probably get more than I paid  ('cause, really, what are the odds that would actually happen?). All you mothers of girls, please buy up the limited supply before I weaken. Click here to view. It's gone. Crisis averted.

3. I am finally off to a good start on a writing project I have been ignoring for several months. I am a person who thrives on deadlines (and penalties for missed deadlines). Alas, in the grown up world one has to rely on self-discipline.

How about you?

Have you ever noticed that it's sooo ridiculously hard to not buy things for your children...but you can pass up stuff for yourself with no problem? Great job this week!

Thanks, Kristi!

JJ's Mom - It is much easier to deny myself than to deny my kids (unless the last Milano or some other chocolate is involved).

Thanks for visiting!
