The Parents’ Voice By Shelley Heaphy

New Year, new leaf

As another year ends and a new one begins my mind always runs over what we’ve just been through.
I start to replay all the memories we’ve made as a family, all the things we’ve accomplished, how much each child has grown, how much I’ve aged (hahaha), and on and on …
A year really does pass by so quickly, when we look back at photos (on my camera because of course I haven’t printed them out yet!) I see squishier faces and shorter legs, I see experiences we’ve had and places we visited. Lots of smiles and tears from this past year and just so much to appreciate and cherish.
As we look forward to 2018, many of us have goals, wishes, hopes and dreams. Good luck pursuing them.
Below are some common doable New Years Resolutions for parents. Have a look and see if maybe one of these applies to you. Maybe you have a different resolution to share with us or maybe you’re searching for one, either way we’d love to hear from you on our Facebook page.
