Small Successes-June 9th


Celebrating the little things in life that add up.

1. I swapped all the baby hangers in Madeline's closet out for adult sized ones.  This decision not only ensures that her clothes will no longer be falling off the hangers faster than I can hang them, it also saves me from having to buy more baby hangers for Ellie and the baby's closets.  I now have more than enough baby hangers to stock two closets. Since I was spending some time in Madeline's room, I managed to discover clothes that she wore on Palm Sunday that were stuffed under her bed for some unknown reason.  I also removed a small mountain of outgrown shoes from her closet.  Eventually that dirty laundry and gym sock smell will be extracted from her bedroom.  I can't wait.

2. Ellie graduated from kindergarten on Tuesday.  I can't believe my baby is a first grader now.  Mean mom that I am, I've been having her do about 45 minutes of 1st grade work every morning since school ended.  My goal is to make sure she's ready to do lots of writing when she gets to the elementary school. Her sister wasn't prepared for the amount of writing that first grade required so we're being proactive.

3. The shade and curtain rod are up in the nursery.  My mom picked up the scarf valence I needed to complete the window yesterday so I'll be putting that up later today.

4. I'm working on getting the laundry under control.  If I get three or four loads washed today I might be able to catch up.

5. I almost forgot, Madeline made the travel soccer team.  We're very happy that she made it, but at the same time we're disappointed that her current coach didn't get the team.  It's a bittersweet victory.


  1. Wow, the closet/hanger thing is never-ending, right? Glad you found a way to work with that! :)Kristen @ St Monica's Bridge

  2. Great job on all that cleaning! Sounds like a new right of passage...going from baby hangers to adult hangers!

  3. I stopped using baby hangers with the size 4 clothes .... everything started falling off! SO much better on the adult hangers.

    Go, laundry momma, go! I'm planning on tackling that today, too.
