10 Things Tuesday - July 5

If you haven't been following, I've started posting 10 things every Tuesday that I am thankful for, as a reminder to us all. This week - one of our busiest of the year with work and multiple birthdays, is a week to not sweat the small stuff. Instead it's time to be thankful for the small things.
  • there are shoes on our feet, a roof over our heads, and food in the fridge
  • the sound of laughter errupting at dinner when Bradley does something "JUST LIKE DADDY"
  • swim lessons, and a pool to practice in
  • getting 2 strawberries before the rabbits did
  • plenty of squash, cucumber and green beans in the garden
  • sunshine, with a side of rain
  • the patience to potty train
  • the moments of peace when no one is fighting
  • a chance to go somewhere new this week
  • 7 happy healthy years with our terrific twins


  1. Thanks for stopping by my blog today! Great list - lots to be thankful for!

    We are potty training our twins right now and thankfully its going well! My daughter is in undies and has very few accidents (maybe 1 a week). My son is not too far behind (maybe 1 accident a day now). We've got some time before #3 gets there (he's only 5 months! haha!)

  2. Yeah for potty training! One of our twins are potty trained and the other is all but for at night. Peyton, our youngest has recently been trying to go on his own, and telling us when he "need to go" (read: sit on potty and pretend to go). Anyways...I've added you to the blogs that I watch as well :-) you have a great family.

  3. that is such a great idea! Sometimes we forget to be thankful for the little things!

  4. What a great post! And a great idea, too, to do it regularly.

    And thanks for stopping by my blog - it looks like we have a lot in common: working mom, stay-at-home dad for husband, twins + one, etc. etc. Looking forward to getting to know you! (And adding you to my blogroll as well) :-)
