survival + small victories = supermom!

I know I’m not alone when I say that most days I feel like I’m just surviving.

Get up. Drop Moosh off at the sitter. Rush to work. Survive 8+ hours at work. Pick up Moosh. Entertain Moosh/survive until his bedtime. Do chores. Workout. Sit down. Fall asleep. Wake up. Repeat.

Hum drum. Blah. Ugh.

But after the holidays — and after surviving the flu — I’m back on track. And if there’s one thing I love more than organization and structure,… well, it’s nothing. I love being on a schedule. I love checking things off my to-do list. And I love the feeling of a less-than-thrilling day becoming exciting by accomplishments!

So I celebrate the small victories.

I celebrate the fact that I made it to the gym after work last night. And that I cooked dinner for tonight while Moosh was playing with his trains before bed. Oh – and I vacuumed the whole house, did the dishes, straightened up, and started laundry. There’s nothing that can make me feel more like a super mom than getting s**t done. Am I right!?

supermom
I am mom. And I am superwoman! TELL ME I’m not the only one who feels this way!? … or don’t. That’s cool too. I would be totally fine knowing that I really am the ONLY person in the world who feels this way.

If you need me, I’ll be over here basking in the victory of motherhood and domesticity…

I feel the same way a lot of times, Jeanette is almost one and I feel like I am finally starting to get into a routine. Things are much easier now that she can play while I cook dinner and that she can feed herself. I’ve also found that on the weekend, nap time is the best time for me to power clean and get things done!

Big victories. Little victories. Doesn’t matter as long as you’re winning! Motherhood #FTW!

It feels good to check things off a list for sure. Sometimes I’ll write things down in my planner that I did, JUST so I can cross it off.

Wait…did I just write that down…

Your little one is adorable. 🙂 Glad you linked up with our Happy Mama’s!
