Hailey's Turn

I set 10 goals this year--fairly accomplishable--2 each in the areas of Physical, Mental, Social, Emotional and Spiritual. My hope is to post my success stories throughout 2010.

However... one additional thing I'm trying to do this year is CONNECT with my kids on a deeper level. Besides the monthly individual "mom dates" that I have planned (yes, even driving down to Provo for Hillary), I want my children to know I truly am aware of their inner core and know what is important to them.

SO... Hailey loves dogs. Hailey loves Cooper. I love Hailey. I guess I love Cooper. I made a 2010 calendar for Hailey to hang in her school locker.
She's so happy they share May birthdays (Hailey on the 12th; Cooper on the 26th)



She really liked it.

What a great idea to have "dates" with your kids. I always think I'm going to do that, but I always let it slide. I need to do better. I love your calendar! A perfect gift for Hailey! You are amazing and I can't wait to hear about your progress in 2010.

Thanks for the motivation and inspiration! I never make resolutions, but you got me thinking and I actually followed your lead and wrote down a bunch along with my "plan" for accomplishing them!
