Parents Bloggers Network is joining forces with Big Tent for this weeks blog blast and they're asking "How Are You Going To Get Your Circus Together for 2009?"
Every year I think of New Years Resolution to change my life. I could commit to losing that baby weight (yes, I still have baby weight 21 months later), I could find a job that pays, I could swear off soda (again), I could build a bird house or paint a mural! I could do anything, as long as I put my mind to it... but when I think about what I'm going to do to get my circus in shape for 2009, I think about my husband and my daughter.
I think about what I can do to make life easier for them.
I could plan more play dates for Roo and I could send out more photo query letters for my husband. I could promise to keep the house clean and have a hot cooked meal on the table for Mr. Me. I could promise to keep up with the laundry so Roo always have cute outfits to wear (that don't have stains on them).
There's so much I can (and will) do to make my family's life easier. The one resolution that I know for a fact I will stick to is to love them unconditionally all year long.
I know for a fact that when Roo spills crayons all over the floor or my husband tromps in mud all over the floor, I will not bitch and moan about it, I will hug them tightly and thank the heavens that I have them in my life.
So forget diets and exercise, I'm all about the love for 2009.
Bring it on, baby.
