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.

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.
