My word for the year is
When I look back I want to remember the fun times with my kids.
When I look back I want to say I learned to not take myself too seriously!
When my kids look back I don't want them to say, "Mom never laughed."
I don't want to ever hear my kids say (as they did a year or so ago), "Wow, Mom, I've never heard your really laugh like that." sigh.
When I look back I want to recognize that I laughed in the moment of mishaps, not just after the fact.
And, most importantly, I want to really laugh with my husband. :-)
Did you know, "On average, children laugh 400 times a day, while adults laugh about 15 times (The Power of Laughter)?" How sad is that. I want to be the adult that beats out the kids on that one.
Wish me luck!
