Thursday Thirteen

Thirteen Things about Melanie
13 Resolutions for Me for 2006

1. After the baby is born, I want to lose 50 pounds from my pre-baby weight and get healthy!!

2. I will spend more time with my kids and less time worrying about household chores that can be put off to spend time with them

3. I will try to ask for help when I need it around the house instead of trying to be a Super Mom.

4. I will try to keep in better contact with family far away that I hardly have a chance to talk to - write more letters, send more emails, make more phone calls. Not just around the holidays!

5. I will spend more time working with Bam-Bam on his goals for speech and other goals for his development

6. I will spend more time reading with and to the Professor and working on basic math facts with him

7. I will spend more time on family outings so that the kids are not always in the house

8. I will try to reserve at least one time per month for just King Papa Bear and I to have some couple time - Need to reserve sitter too!!!

9. I will try to take some more time for just me - girly time to myself. This will involve reading a book in the tub, going out alone or with friends, taking the time to spoil me at the spa or something equally as relaxing

10. I want to try to instill more religion in our lives by getting the whole family to attend church more and learn more about our belief in God

11. I will become less of a procrastinator regarding work that needs to be done and get my work done timely to leave more family time available!

12. I will spend more time and effort advocating for Bam-Bam's needs and follow through with every opportunity we find

13. I will try to be a better mother for my children and all that comes with!
