Happy New Year!

This year, I want more smiles,
And not so many tears.
A year to be quite daring,
While ignoring all my fears.
This year I will understand,
And criticize much less,
I will celebrate my family.
And ignore the loads of stress.
I want to curb my spending,
Instead, I want to save,
Yell less than I do now,
And reward when they behave.
I want more time with family,
And I want to hold them close,
Because at every year's end,
My family matters most.

Maybe I can print that out and glue it to my forehead to remind me to do all these things each day. My dear, sweet, loving Ashlyn just told me I am mean....Happy New Year mommy! So...I guess I'm being tested already on being a better mommy this new year. ;) Happy New Year Leeann! I hope you and your family have a great year. I hope all your wishes and all the things you wrote come true! Happy New Year!
