Simple Things That Make This Mom Happy

Whoever said pregnancy would be easy the second time around probably didn’t have to care for a toddler during all three trimesters. But I can’t complain, my little guy has been pretty helpful around the house and Jeff and I have a tag team match going on. I deal with the tantrums during the day and Jeff handles them at night. 
To keep sane, I try to think of all the things that put a smile on my face: 
An extra 5 minutes in the shower.  
Kisses from daddy. 
Hugs from baby. 
A clean baby. 
A clean home. 
Slipping into clean bed sheets. 
Walking down the store aisles. 
Any excuse to out of the house. 
Cuddling up with a good book while the baby rests. 
Sleeping in for another 5 minutes. 

I’m sure there are more but I can’t seem to think of any at the moment. 

What keeps you going on off days? 


  1. Each of those can resonate with me (except my babies are way bigger)! A glass of wine and quality "alone" time with my hubs definitely put a smile on my face!

    1. Some wine and the hubs is always a good mix. 😉

  2. I love clean sheets!! I can relate to many of the things on this list actually! 🙂

    1. Clean sheets are my weakness. I get so excited every week after changing them that I practically count down the hours to bedtime.
