If moms wrote all the New Year’s resolutions.

I’ve never been one for big New Year’s celebrations. I think I’m so utterly drained after Christmas, I’m just kinda like, “Meh. It’s another day. There’s a big ball. Lots of people proving they can, indeed, count backwards. Whatever.”

New Year’s resolutions are kind of a joke, too. Moms frequently want to put “Make more time for myself,” on that list. You and I both know that ain’t happening until the pitter patter of little feet is made as they pack up the car to leave for college.

But I think the reason these resolutions are so often an epic FAIL is that there’s no genius behind them. Natural fix for that? Let the moms do the writing. Oh. heck. yes. Because we know what’s best for everyone, and if they would just listen to us we wouldn’t need so much wine coffee therapy alone time.

I came up with a brief list of mediocre resolutions for the family. Feel free to use these as you see fit.

And from my Mediocre family to yours, Happy New Year!

  4. I don’t usually make New Year’s resolutions, but I now resolve to get my big kids to make these resolutions. Especially the ones about the veggies and the rolling of the eyes. Happy New Year.
