4 Resolutions Every Mom Should Make This New Year
‘Tis the season for making resolutions!
Whether you want to lose weight or gain income, here are four resolutions that every mother should have on her list this year.
1. Take Some Time for You
Was your dinner cold by the time you got around to actually eating it? How many times did you get up to refill a cup, or get someone their favorite spoon, or more ketchup? The point is, that we take a lot of our time to cater to the needs of our family- we need to do the same for ourselves. Help your children become a little more independent by tasking them with things they should be able to do for themselves, and give yourself a break. Get out with your girlfriends more often, or just curl up by the fireplace with a good book, or maybe even give YOURSELF a bath! Bubbles? Even better!
2. Don’t Miss the Moments
That pile of laundry, the stack of dishes, and those dust bunnies in the corner will still be there tomorrow. Tomorrow, your children will be another day older; and they may no longer enjoy tickle wars on the rug, or have the time to sit and play with paper dolls. When they ask you to play with them – do it. There will always be something else you “should” be doing. The most important thing a mother has to do is mother her children. Mother them with love and attention, and be present in every moment.
