This New Year’s Eve we celebrated with our kids with fireworks and a movie. Then we put the kids to bed and had a babysitter watch them while we headed to a friend’s for food and games. The fact that we could actually get a sitter on New Year’s Eve is mind blowing. For those of you who have kids, you know what an impossible task that is. Which is why for the last 7 years we’ve watched the ball drop from the comfort of our couch. I don’t mind that at all either, but it was nice to have a change of pace.
I know a lot of people are anti-resolutions but I think there’s nothing wrong with setting your compass North to things that are better.
My resolution this year is to BE ON TIME.
With four kids there are a lot of ‘X’ factors that can happen between the time you decide to go out the door and actually get there. Diaper change, lost shoe, snacks, missing glove, etc.
But all of those aren’t good excuses. If you give yourself enough time it doesn’t matter what happens. My goal is to add ten minutes more prep to however long I think it will take us to get out the door. BTW – I already muffed this one the second day of the year but have recommitted to it again.
What are your resolutions…if you’re sharing?
