New Year's Resolutions

This year Curly Q. expressed interest in making her own resolutions. So at breakfast Friday I brought it up. I thought we could give each other suggestions as to what changes we could make for the new year. I was pleasantly surprised by how insightful they both were. We each ended up with 3 personal resolutions plus a few things we plan to work on as a family.

Bear's Resolutions:
  1. Hold her pencil correctly
  2. Talk when she is upset instead of hiding and crying
  3. Clean up after herself
Curly Q.'s Resolutions:
  1. Listen to her belly when deciding what and ow much to eat
  2. Stay out of other people's business
  3. Be more optimistic
Mom's Resolutions:
  1. Spend more time with kids doing fun stuff
  2. Talk to kids instead of just sending them to their rooms when they misbehave
  3. Do one cardio and one yoga workout each week
Family Resolutions:
  2. Give our dog more attention
  3. Use less paper
  4. Do more to take care of the environment
So there you have it. I think these are great goals. Plus I think we can actually achieve all of these.
