I’m trying to learn to appreciate the little victories in our lives in the hope that it will help me retain a bit more of my sanity. With that in mind, I present to you

Today’s Little Victory:

A few weeks ago Grandma and Pa-Pa G gave us a pair of really nice, blue goggles to use during Tubby Time. All three of the Boys is “terrified” of water and they completely flip-out if water gets on their faces; forget about the fit they throw if the water gets in their eyes. So we were hoping the goggles would help Tubby Time sound less like we were murdering them and more like, well, bath time. All three have been wearing them around the house to get used to how they feel since Grandma and Pa-Pa G gave them to us.

Today Gavin tried them out in the shower.

Until now his version of “rinsing” his hair was he washed it and then got out of the shower all sudsy; at which point he would use his towel to wipe the soap off of his hair. For a long time Rob and I couldn’t figure out how his hair smelled clean but looked dirtier than when he’d gotten in the shower in the first place. Turns out he was terrified of getting soap and water in his eyes.

For today, our Little Victory is that the goggles worked and Gavin actually rinsed his hair and his head, face and neck.

And that’s all I’m trying to worry about: Today’s Little Victories.
