Little Things

Yesterday was one of those days where you really do have to appreciate the little things.   For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction (or something like that):

Q was happy to get dressed when he got up (not always the case) but then cried for about 20 minutes because I didn't let him eat the almond butter off of the spoon (I figured it wasn't a great idea since there are kids in his class that have allergies).

E made his own breakfast (oatmeal), but put the microwave cover on it and the oatmeal bubbled over and made a big mess.  (But not his fault)

Q stopped crying but then spilled shake on his shirt and needed an outfit change before we left.

Our cable box isn't working and I spent some time on the phone with them trying to get it fixed remotely, but it didn't work.  But thankfully I can still watch shows on the Bell app on my phone.

But we picked up some groceries (including a box of cookies the boys talked me into), read some books, E successfully completed some math work, I did my ab/pushup/squat workout, and the kitchen is cleaned up.  Plus I get to work from home tomorrow, which I am so appreciative of.

And I get to enjoy some leftover Thanksgiving wine and pie while I'm watching This Is Us (on my phone, see above).

This is not the usual format for a Little Things post, but it is still a reminder to pick out the happy little moments when you can.


  1. Yes, sometimes the little ones can get upset over little things... I guess we all do, at times..... glad you found some good little things to balance it out. 😊

  2. Such a real life post! We really do have to celebrate the small things :-). This is us and leftovers sound like my jam!
