If I'm honest, taking care of two toddlers provides me with many opportunities that leave me feeling accomplished. Many days, just taking a shower leaves me feeling accomplished. Mom's, I know you know what I mean! Other days, it's a day without time-outs, or a day where the house is cleaned, or when I complete a family's gallery. As a mostly stay-at-home mom, much of my accomplishment is home and family based. But recently, I had a major personal accomplishment. I crocheted a hat for Sawyer, and it fits! This may not seem like a big deal, but if you recall the first hat I made for her, you'd understand how proud I am! Feeling Accomplished, Artist Inspiration

Of course, if I'm honest, she won't wear it. She loves hats, but she won't wear this one. Figures, right? On the plus side, Milo asked for me to make him a hat! So I'm working on that. I will share when it's done. Let's hope he will wear it - then I will really be feeling accomplished!

What leaves you feeling accomplished? Big or small, what are you proud of? Have you taken the time to do something for yourself lately? I know how having young children can make it feel selfish to do something for yourself, but I can say that doing something creative for myself (crocheting, photographing my kids, photographing other families) leaves me feeling accomplished. It makes me a better mom. Just a thought to ponder for your Wednesday.
