10 New Year Resolutions for Parents

10 New Year Resolutions for Parents

What do you hope for, for 2017?

With Christmas over and 2017 looming over your shoulder, have you thought of your new year resolutions?

All I have been doing was stuffing my face since middle of December so I haven’t actually sat down to reflect on what has happened for the year. It has been a whirlwind of ups and downs for us this year. Right about now, what I really want is to be like this cute little newborn in the video below and not have a care for the world.

The Truth About My New year Resolutions

It isn’t because my willpower is really weak. I just haven’t really made time to prioritise on these things – especially with regards to myself. As a work at home mum (WAHM) a lot of my time goes to work and family.

I’m sure some of you may wonder why I bother listing new year resolutions at all. I wonder to myself too sometimes. But I guess it is to keep myself in check – having a list as guidance is better than having none at all.
