More of What I Am Doing Right

Thankfully Jaime over at James and Jax likes to remind us that we are doing things right. It is so hard some days, it seems like I can do nothing right, but I am. I am doing a lot of right things. I just have to take the time to remember them.

1. I set up a real live playdate for Ryder! I'll meet his friend and his friend's mom.

2. I make lunch for Ryder every day. Okay, not fridays but they have pizza at school and how could I deny him of that?

3. I am making an effort towards Easter this year. I pretty much ignored it last year. I'm not religious so it means nothing to me, but that's not fair for Ryder who just wants to find some eggs. So we're going to dye some eggs friday, since there is no school or daycare for Good Friday.

4. I am doing a great job keeping up with my school work. I had my doubts when I started, but it is so interesting I've been finding time for it.



  1. Those are all things I'm happy you are doing and sharing about here! Playdates make me a little anxious (that whole social interaction with moms I don't know that well thing), but they're so good and fun for kids, so I suck it up. Thanks for linking up, and for your recent comments on my blog! I really appreciate it.

  2. I'm sure you could continue that list with many, many more! And who wouldn't skip making lunch on pizza days!

  3. Raine, that is a great thing to do. I think sometimes we are hardest on ourselves and find it hard to see what we do well. Good for you!

  4. Hang in there mama, being a single parent isn't an easy task. I was once in your shoes and I look back on all of the things that I accomplished. I am amazed at the things that I did as a sacrifice for my kids. I worked full-time, went to school full-time, and took care of the two kids.

    Always focus on the positive things. :)

  5. Yay!! Glad to hear things are going a little better for ya. I am not religious, either, but I do make baskets for the boys and stuff.

  6. Oooh I love pizza friday's at school too! I usually don't pack lunch when I know there will be pizza. :D

  7. Love the positive note - it's always good to remember our accomplishments no matter how small! Love the play date and Easter Egg dying for your son - go mama!
