Recently, every few days I try to think of something to do for my husband and each of our children to show them how much I love them. The things that I choose to do for them are simple and inexpensive and don't take a lot of time to execute. I try to think about each of the people that I am doing something for and what they like and try to plan accordingly. This week, I made my husband two of his favorite dinners (Shrimp Scampi and clams over pasta with garlic lemon sauce), I played a few board games with our daughter and also painted her toenails, and cooked with Little Man (which he loves to do!) and let him play and splash in our kitchen sink to his heart's content! All of these things were easy to do (though some of them were hard to think of with my foggy baby brain!) and made my little family so happy.
Doing little things for my family doesn't mean that I skip myself! I try to do things for our home and for myself that will make things easier and better around here. Earlier this week, I began going to the hospital for our baby boy's 8am feeding. Before I go to bed each night, I lay out my clothes and all of the things I will need for the hospital. It's a small thing, but makes things so much easier in the morning! I've just been keeping up with the bare minimum as far as housekeeping goes, but every few days I freshen up or organize a small area of our home. Yesterday, I put out a few of our summer decorations which spruced things up and made me feel more like myself again. It was kind of unnecessary, but it's about the little things, right?
What feminine things have you been up to lately?
