On New Year's day there are tons of resolutions made and by Valentine's day they are broken!! I have been a victim of RMB syndrome for so long that I have stopped making any resolutions. O btw, RMB syndrome is not a disease... it is Resolution Make and Break Syndrome... that I just discovered while I was typing this.

During 2009 I intend to:
  • be more active on my blog
  • be more involved with my kids (why do I always feel that I don't do enough? Am I a normal Mom?)
  • follow the 3 R's religiously
  • set realistic expectations from my kids
  • eat healthy and lose weight (its my intention not my resolution)
  • find cheap activities for my kids
  • be more creative at home and implement 'Count your blessings not your sorrows and Think positive and move on' in my life.
I want to teach the last one to my kids also without making it sound like a lecture and boring. Gosh..... the joys of mommyhood are endless!!

That reminds me of a cute incident that SP4 told me happened at school...

SP4: Mom, you know President Lincoln was a very nice President.
Me: O yeah! What did he do?
SP4: He said slavery is not good. Do you know what are slaves?
Me: No, can you tell me please?
SP4: Slaves are when people sell people for things. President Lincoln ran in the elections, but he lost.
Me: Then, what happened?
SP4: Then, he ran and ran and ran and then he won!!!

More next time... I hope by the next post I have increased my creativity. I want to take scrap booking lessons... but don't know when..


  1. Hey Hetal...if nothing else, do try and keep your resolution abt taking scrapbooking classes. I got so hooked onto them before N was born that I enjoyed every second of it. And now I crave to find time to get back to it someday.

  2. Hey Hetal, good post once again. I stopped making resolutions long back. I just make short term goals and a few long term. My goals are as short as this needs to be done by the end of the day or in the next hour and as long as I get that work done, I feel satisfied. I totally agree with you on the think positive and move ahead, but sometimes its hard to do. I guess we need each other to motivate us to do that and you have my full support.
