Today’s Picture the Holidays prompt was “You Hold the Key”. To summarize… “Because this month is about enjoying ourselves and not letting the craze out there get the best of us, use today to remind yourself of your own soul cure so you can have it at the ready for whenever you might need it.”
My soul cure? To not sweat the small stuff and to remember to take time for celebration.
Leah (2 1/2) decided to potty-train herself this week. She apparently decided one day to do it, and that was that. We’ve been singing and dancing and giving her “special treats” (which I had to run out and buy because I was totally not ready to potty train her) each time she’s successful. The whole family doing a conga line to our made up “potty potty po-tty” song is quite the site.
My husband took it one step further this morning and brought home a mini, layered Red Velvet Cake from our store bakery. He said “we’re going to have a party to celebrate Leah”… and celebrate we did! The kids were overjoyed and it was great fun to really celebrate her big milestone.
What’s your key to sanity during the holidays?
