The start of a new year is always exciting. While I don't always set a 'New Year's Resolution', I am this year. I am going to be focusing on getting more organized and on losing some weight. Three children later and both are major areas of chaos in my life right now!
To become more organized, I am using scheduling charts for the kids and a daily/monthly planner for myself. I am also making a conscious effort to write things down as soon as I know about them. That planner doesn't work unless I actually put things in it!
As for the weight issue....I just feel gross lately. I'm not happy with the image in the mirror, so it is time to do something about it! No more cookies, no more cake, I am going to be making a conscious effort to drink more water and eat more healthfully.
What are your resolutions this year?

Every January 1st, a countdown begins. Every year, it's the same thing, 105 days until taxes are due. For most of us, this is not a fun time. Even if you are looking forward to getting some money back, it's never as much as you want and there is a bunch of perplexing paperwork to get through first. As parents, we are entitled to some pretty great tax breaks. Here are six of the best:
Weaning. During the early days of nursing, when it hurts and your baby is wiggling and even biting down (ouch!), weaning sounds like a lovely distant thing.
In my house, we are currently in one of those phases where my older children (Alex, 8 and Shari, 5) are constantly fighting. Sometimes it is over something legitimate, like a sibling who took something that doesn't belong to them, but it's usually over something completely inane, like when my daughter got angry at her brother for "Looking out her window in the car."
With the weather being what it has been lately, we have all been spending a lot of time indoors. After staring at the same things day in and day out, I decided it would be fun to add some color here and there. Not wanting to leave the house (brrrr!!!), I looked for what I could do with what I had around already.
I have so enjoyed all of your comments and support as "More Than Mommy". Now, as the blog has grown and changed, I feel that a more appropriate name would be, "Mostly Together Mommy".
