    Your post is sooo helpful to me today…. and I now remember that I used to list every evening the things I did and celebrate by drawing a little symbol – one thing done -> one star – even if it was only cooking meals. And on those days when my baby didn’t let me a chance to do anything (so my feeling), I would give myself a big heart, for being such a good mom that makes her child the top priority. It very soon helped me re-focus on my accomplishments instead of my failures. I guess I’ll do it again in the next weeks…

    Monkey Camp and Penguin Camp? I cannot begin to tell you how jealous I am! So my strategy is to keep my master to do list in a wholly separate notebook than my daily to do list and the daily to do list. Every Thursday I plan hte next week’s actual to dos and only pick a few things from the master to do list to get done. I also include the things that just keep the house humming like: grocery list, water plants, laundry, etc. That way, there are lots of opportunity for scratching things off and no big pressure to produce more work that I can with a little one by my side.
