One thought has impressed me more than any other this New Year: How much my kids have changed in such a short amount of time.
I’ve been looking back at what I wrote from last year and reliving the moments, Christmas, sledding, playing in the snow. I’ve been scrolling through old photos. Both of my kids have changed so much. Pax was a wily one year old with a bad haircut and Ella was a three year old who was learning how to talk.
One year changes so much, doesn’t it?
This isn’t a resolution really as much as a revelation. My kids are changing. Not just physically, they talk different, think different, and engage with me differently, too. I want to be constantly learning about how best to interact with them. This is the year that Ella will turn 5 and go to Kindergarten! Pax will be 3 and he’s already talking and acting more like a big kid. And hopefully this will be the year Macy will finally be home. I can’t believe it is already 2012…
What does 2012 have in store for you and your family?
