Being a mom to three (almost four) means giving up lofty goals and settling for smaller ones, ones that give care and bring small joys to my family. They might include picking up that dustball that has sat in the corner of the hallway all week. They might mean taking extra care when wiping the hands and face of my sweet toddler. It could even possibly mean investing the time and last ounce of energy into a game of football with our oldest.
Small things that bring great joy.
So today, here’s my small feat that is enough to bring a smile to my face and a spring to my mama step. It is trite and rather unimportant, but to me and my family it means I’ve taken the time to care in a small way.
Ladies and Gentlemen, I present to you: CLEAN CARSEATS!!
Hosed, laundered, wiped, and scrubbed. (I know, I know, I’m nesting!!)
They will be clean for T minus one second. But enjoy that second, I will. Our van is feeling fresher already.
Because being a mom means investing in my family and doing the little things that wind up making a big difference, at least in our little world.
