END OF YEAR “SALES” (Not the store kind!)
As 2010 comes to a close, here are some our resolutions for the New Year:
• Build and foster positive relationships between the great/grandparents, the children and their parents.
• Have “Fun” and “Rewarding” become part of our plans for ourselves and our family.
• Cherish and remember some of the many accomplishments our great/grandchildren have made this year: learning to walk and talk, becoming toilet trained, transitioning to school, learning to read, riding a bike, learning to play an instrument, sleeping through the night, exploring their own independence, making new friends, sleepovers, etc.
• Acknowledge some of the many accomplishments WE have made this year: learning to keep our mouth “zipped” when necessary, helping our family without burdening ourselves, learning to put in and take out a car seat, revisiting and reading some of our favorite children’s picture & chapter books, trying to relax when everything around us is tense, trying new activities with the children without stressing perfection (so what if the cookies are like rocks), etc.
