My new year's resolution this year is to take time with my children. I am pretty much a SAHM, so you would think I have lots of time with them...and I do. BUT - I am trying to get the laundry done, meals cooked, clothes put away, beds made, kitchen tidied up etc etc.
My goal for this year is to focus on my children more; no more saying "give me 10 minutes to do xyz". I have known for a long time that my oldest needs lots of 1-1 time. If he doesn't get it, he starts to go wild and act out. If I just take the time with him to play the game he wants to play, then I can often get 30 minutes to do what needs to be done.
However, if I try to get my stuff done and put him off for 30 minutes, it doesn't work - and we both end up frustrated and as much as I hate to admit, I lose my patience.
What are your New Years resolutions - do you even make them?
