Happy New Year, Parenthackers!
Ah, a new year and a fresh start! I'm not generally one for resolutions, but I do have plans for organizing and simplifying my life, establishing some simple home routines, and kicking back and enjoying my friends and my family.
Amazing how easy it can be to get lost in the work of parenting -- forgetting to have fun along the way. A friend of mine, whose son is a freshman in high school, was stunned by the sudden realization that he'll be moving out, as in LEAVING HOME, in three years. Never seemed a possibility during those toddler and preschool years, and yet, here she is, mother of a person who strangely resembles a man.
Whatever your hopes are for 2008...why not take a step toward them today? Perhaps we can do it together.
