The Little Things

8 Mar

Enjoy the little things, for one day you may look back and realize they were the big things.”
~ Robert Brault

There are many things in my life I know I could not live without. I spend a lot of my time being grateful for these things and mentioning over and over how I couldn’t bear to part with them. Things like my electricity, running water, a working vehicle and my dishwasher. These are things that if I would suddenly be without them, I would likely lose my sanity – or what’s left of it.

Then there are the little things. The things that are often overlooked and certainly life would go on without them, but they make my life just that much better. Here are just a few of those little things.

Thank you Beckie for introducing me to the St. Ives line of facial products. The apricot scrub and firming mask are incredible. I’ve even convinced Johnny to try them. I love the little scrubby pieces in the cleanser and the scent of both products are incredible. My face has never felt cleaner or smoother.

Live Clean Baby is my absolute favorite line of baby bath products ever. I got some free samples when I was pregnant with Lola and I was sold. It’s all I’ve ever used for her. It has a shampoo/baby wash, bubble bath and lotion that all smell absolutely divine and leave my little girl’s skin so soft! There is also a non-petroleum jelly for diaper changes, but we stopped using that when we were forced to buy Vaseline Baby in a pinch and still haven’t run out and needed to replace it. I’m absolutely sold on these products and will use them again if we ever add another baby to our family.

As you can see, a certain little girl tried to break into these early

We’re a pacifier family. I know some people are absolutely anti-paci, and if you’re one of those people, I salute you. I’ll warn you, though; don’t waste your breath trying to ‘convert” me. There always have been and always will be pacifiers in my family as long as we have a child young enough to use one. My other kids used the “Nuk” brand, but for Lola I decided to go with the Playtex Binky and I have not regretted it for a minute. Lola loves her Binky and it is her constant companion. It’s definitely a little piece of sanity.

Funny thing about these Binkies…we have gone through 3 packages of them so far…and all the green ones still look like new.

This is what my wonderful husband brought home to me this morning after he took Hayden to school. French Vanilla cappuccino from Tim Horton’s. It’s the one thing I feel zero guilt indulging myself in. It’s delicious, sweet and caffienated. Makes every day a better day.

What are some little things that you couldn’t do without?

    I definatly could not live without my family.My hubby and 2 sons are my world!!!I also could not live without my parents.I love my mom to death but my dad is my best friend and hero in more ways than one.We sometimes take things for granted and sometimes not realize that we are even doing it.I thank God every day for a roof over my head and food in my cupboards.How many people out there don’t have a roof over their heads no matter how bad the weather is?Also how many people don’t even have butter to go on their bread?We sometimes take our health or our childrens health forgranted not meaning to.When a doctor looks at you after your son has been in an accident and says “Mom even though he is on life support I can’t promise you that he will even make the flight to St.John’s”.I thank God every single day for my childrens health!!!!
