The year that was

So here we are at the end of 2012. Strange how in some ways, this year has flown and in other ways, it seems like it’s been so dragged out. Ever get that?

Well, looking back, this has been a year of eating healthier. It’s not always easy, given how crazy our schedules can get, but we do try. We’ve included previously untried or balked at food into our diet and quite unexpectedly, we’ve gained new respect for such alien stuff as eggplants and zucchinis. With the exception of quinoa, of course 😆 .

As a mom, my eyes are constantly peeled for any parenting approach that’s different than mine and I have to say, this year has been eye-opening. When I see behavior that baffles me or that I have an opinion (not judgement) about, I’m wont to throw in a post or two to see what other parents think. Like whether fairy tales are too scary for kids, or if parents should correct their kids when they misbehave in public, or pay their kids to do the chores. Am absolutely thrilled with the responses.

And of course, there were lots to see and do and learn. Lots of LOLs with my kids this year over conversations about everything and nothing. Lots of movie nights and hanging out. No New Year’s resolutions for me though. I don’t do those. ’nuff said, here’s to a brand new year of love, laughs, health, happiness and hugs, and saying it like it is. Happy New Year!
