2010 is here...the start of not only a new year but a new decade. What will it bring? What will you make of it?
As my husband and I put our children to bed last night we reflected with each of them how much they had grown, changed, and learned in 2009.
Our son August began school and is much more independent. He began reading and writing and is able to do most tasks on his own. Martha matured a lot and engages in reasoning with us. She's really thinking things through now. And Hazel, well she learned to walk, eat solids, drink from a sippy cup, go to sleep on her own and began talking.
This morning we all gathered into our king size bed and discussed what we wanted 2010 to be. Trips we'd like to take, things we'd like to experience and learn more about, behavior we want to improve upon, and we taught the kids what resolutions are. August and Martha said their resolutions are to be better listeners and to fight less. Perfect!
The new year bring reflection and hope. What amazing gifts! I hope you and your family make the most of them and have an amazing 2010!
