Great advice! It's hard to celebrate the little things in life and if you don't pay attention it'll pass you by! Lucy just "officially" was done potty training in March and it was the best ever but a little sad too that my "baby" is so big :(. Congratulations on the big moment!

Congratulations!!!! My son is potty training now. ...

Congratulations!!!! My son is potty training now. I always get this happy smiley grin on my face when he tinkles and then clap and say "yay Brian!!!" The other morning I had to go so I took him with me so he couldn't destroy the house in the meantime. He heard the tinkle and did the same face that I do and clapped and said "YAY MOMMY!" LOL I couldn't help but laugh. It was a great start to what ended up being a long day! Congratulations baby girl! Your mommy is so proud of you!!!

So today was a big celebration in the Schaub was the first pee pee in the potty for Aubrey! It was a funny mommy moment for me this morning, as I was getting Aubrey up, she asked to go potty. This was not a first for us, but it was definitely a first when I place her on the potty and tah-dah, she actually did something! I sat there cheering on my daughter for her big accomplishment, and I was chuckling to myself. My, how life changes!

It is so incredible how children bring this overwhelming smile to life. How this little tinkle in a big ceramic bowl brought me so much joy! I know, sounds corny, even to me, but it is so true. It is an amazing journey to watch as Aubrey is speaking her first sentences, understanding actions and reactions. And now to watch her growing up and learning the fundamentals of life, it is beyond joyous.

And, then I had a moment of realization...why don't we do this for ourselves? Why don't we stop to celebrate our little accomplishments? Why do we do it for our children and not ourselves? With RuffleButts, Mark and I often joke that we are so busy with the next thing on our list, that we rarely stop to celebrate the victories. Although we laugh about this, it is not a good habit. This month, I have decided, we are stopping to celebrate. I have booked a small vacation for Mark and me. I tend to have my best business ideas, when my mind is fresh and not busy with a "to-do" list. This and it is our 6-year wedding anniversary, so we are stopping to celebrate. We are also going to have a little celebration in the office. We have the most awesome team here at RuffleButts. They work so hard day in and day out to take care of our customers, so this month, we are stopping to celebrate them. I may not do the potty cheer, but I don't ever want to be too busy for the smiles and cheers of little celebrations!

Today, whatever it may be, don't forgot to cheer yourself on. You work hard, you sometimes may feel overwhelmed, you may not be perfect, but don't forget the little celebrations along the way!
