Small Success Thursday

Every Thursday, we celebrate success.

This past week, we made it to the photographer to get three of the nine portraits and are scheduled for a full shot next Tuesday.

Parenting is 90% discernment of "What's my motivation?" with each individual child. For the entire season, one daughter has NOT wanted to participate in the sport she is playing. We decided this was a character building moment and didn't let her opt out, but upon offering an appropriate bribe of new books, she agreed to play with her whole heart. The subsequent attitude adjustment yielded a tripple play to win a spot in the playoff championship game from the same player.

Got a hair cut. It's kind of like the triumph of getting a shower for a new mom. It should be baseline but we all know, it isn't.

well I desperately need a hair cut so maybe I will go this week so that I can put it in my small success next week.

Leaving a comment is a form of free tipping. But this lets me purchase diet coke and chocolate.

If you sneak my work, No Chocolate for You!
