So I have been thinking about my resolutions for the year. For the toddler side of my life I’ve come up with the following. Be sure to add yours in the comments!
I resolve to not go to the store with food smashed into my shirt (even if it happens to be on my back where I can’t see it) or my pants or my skirt, ok, or even in my hair.
I resolve to eat one meal a week where I am not coughed on, spit on, drooled on, or sneezed on while eating.
I resolve to read a book that does not begin with “Once upon a time” or where every other word rhymes or can’t be found in the dictionary.
I resolved to poop alone at least once a week.
I further resolve that no children may be on my lap while I am pooping if I cannot have the luxury of pooping alone.
I resolve to have a phone conversation that does not involve me having to move the phone to the side so I don’t hurt my friend’s ear while yelling, “Oh no you don’t! Get out of that! I mean it! NO!”
I resolve to not hide in my bedroom while snacking on hidden chocolate when the noise of my house just gets too loud.
On second thought, these resolutions seem like I might be setting myself up for failure. I may need to reevaluate these! Do you have any great resolutions?
