I've never been one to make new year's resolutions. I just don't believe in it. I've got some goals, most of which involve successfully adding another person to our family and successfully by the end of 2009 not being the heaviest (weight) person in my family. Other than that? I want to be a good mom, live in the moment of our lives, and try to not stress out about everything. Hopefully there won't be any head banging into the counter tops or wrist banging into the sofa.
The other morning after his bath, Elliott and I played hide and seek for about 15 minutes on my bed. He was bare naked and I was terribly nervous that he would relieve himself on my fresh clean sheets. He didn't. Once our playing was over and I finally got him dressed I had one of those, A ha! moments. One of those - wow, life is great I love being a mom, I have so much to look forward to moments. There's a lot to be said for living in the moment and letting the kid throw all the covers over his head without a stitch of clothing.
I want to do that more!
And, because I haven't made one for a while, here's our year in review slide show. If you actually watch it, and make it to the end. Good for you...a gold star on your forehead.
