I was considering writing a post about my New Years’ resolutions for 2012 but that would be pretty boring since I basically have the same resolutions that I have every year and I wouldn’t be surprised if they are quite common to the general mom population.  I will be more organized.  I will eat better.  I will try to make sure my girls eat better.  I will reduce, reuse and recycle more.  I will not to get stressed out over small things.  Etc. Etc.  You get the picture.

So, rather than bore you with how I will continue my journey to becoming my personal best in 2012, I thought it might be fun to think about what my family’s resolutions would be if it were up to me! Hey, a girl can dream, can’t she?

 So here goes:

  • For my 1 year old:  I will not cry when you put me down and I will do better at sleeping soundly through the night.
  • For my almost 3 year old:  I will always share my toys with my sister and I will not whine so much.
  • For my husband:  I will put my dirty clothes in the clothes basket instead of leaving them on the floor and I will remember to take the garbage out on Friday mornings, or better yet Thursday nights!
  • For my dog:  I will not steal anymore food off the counter or out of the hands of my favorite people and I will do all of my doggy business in one area of the yard!

In all seriousness, 2011 has had its ups and downs but overall, my family had a great year.  I cannot believe how much my girls have grown and changed and I am looking forward to see what 2012 has in store for us!  I am grateful to have found CT Working Moms and I would like to wish a very happy New Year to you and your families!  Hope 2011 leaves you with many happy memories and 2012 brings great things to all of you!
