It’s important for moms to recognize that all the small successes in our days can add up to one big triumph. So on Thursday of each week, we do exactly that.
1) Everything for the Easter Baskets is either here or enroute, except the candy and the chocolate peanut butter eggs I’ll be making next week. Those are just an oval shaped version of the buckeyes I make at Christmastide, and which have spoiled me to the extent that mere Reeses cups just don’t suffice.
2) I finally fixed Dinosaur’s “Little John Deere” shirt. He had outgrown last year’s undershirts but refused to part with the ones I had appliqued tractors onto, thus happily hopping around in something too small and ragamuffiny for Mommy’s liking. So, I hid the shirt from the to-be-folded pile and cut out the applique, then resewed it on to this year’s undershirt. He is quite happy with his “new Little John Deere” shirt. Now I need to tackle the other appliqued undershirt. 😉
3) We took care of so much paperwork this week. Things like tax returns and third quarter grade forms and registration forms for the new parish we’ve been attending lately, which is a little closer to our home here than the one we’d been attending at the Old Haus. That last one feels like the end of a chapter, but we have really come to like the new parish. It is a smaller Catholic Church on the top of a hill out in the country, with mountain views out the windows. Talk about a peaceful setting! There are a lot of young families there as well, which is consoling when your child is fussy and happens to not be the only one. 😉
