Small Success Thursday

My three small successes for today...

1. I took all 3 kids to the pediatrician to check on Ellie's week-long earache. Sure enough it was a bad ear infection, poor thing! The past few times I've been to the doctor, I've had someone else watch the other kids to try and keep the germs away, but ventured out with everyone today! I kept Steven Joseph on my back in my new Beco carrier (got it for an amazing deal..those things are pricey!). He lasted for the entire appointment and the wait for the prescription next door, over an hour in the carrier. Love the Beco!


2. I survived a pizza buffet and grocery store outing with all 3 kids. I'm also pleased to say that I got the pizza place to let me use a buy one, get one coupon for Mary Clare's meal. I think it's ridiculous that some places (ie local salad buffet) will only let you use the free one on an adult meal. Couldn't you just order the child an adult meal and get it comped? Anyone understand the reasoning on this? Do they want less children there? Or do they think another adult will buy a more expensive drink or something? Anyway, the little ones were free, so that makes for a fairly cheap meal! Steven Joseph refused to eat, though, all he wanted to do was hold the "big gun"....


3. I honored my promise to Ellie after her doctor visit, to let her choose a park to go to this afternoon. Of course she chose the one in our suburb that is the farthest from our house! But the weather is gorgeous this week and it was so nice to be out in the sun! We did our reading lessons at the doctor office and math at the park! A great day!




Now to clean this messy house and tackle the mountains of dishes and laundry! Everyone is so much happier when we're out and about and having fun, except the poor house that gets neglected...

So envious of the weather! I am itching to get the kids out to the parks. Could be a few months still. :)

Great job on your small successes!
