2013 - At least a day late and a dollar short

For those of you that don't know, I am very generally very sentimental on New Years and love to be a Sappy McEmoPants and reflect deeply upon my year at it's close. Until this point I had considered anyone that didn't stay up to watch the ball drop and throw confetti a total SCROOGE. But alas, this is apparently the year that I became an old curmudgeon. It's kind of disconcerting.

I'm with Jen this year - "just trying to survive today" - but I mean that in the best way possible. Maybe a better way of putting it is "trying to enjoy today in survival mode". In any case, I'm not going to bother with any lofty ambitions this year. I'm an old curmudgeon now! I'm becoming a bit more practical:
*Update: If you haven't heard, pray for Jen!

1. Tame the curly mops.
Neither one of these poor girls has ever had a haircut. I'm lucky if I get a brush through their hair twice a week. It's out of control. It needs to stop. I have no idea what to do with it but I need to figure it out. No more slapping a headband on as a band aid as we walk out the door.

2. Lock up the art supplies.
If a picture is worth a thousand words, I could write a novel about this one.
Need I say more?

3. Potty training.

Can't decide if this is a potty chair fail or win...

Let's not do 2 in diapers for another year. Please?

And last but not least, "blog makeover" makes the list as an honorary mention.

Happy New Year, everyone!! Best of luck with your resolutions, be they lofty or not!!


  1. When was that potty chair picture taken?! I was just laying on that pillow!

    1. Stephen, I really thought you would have come to terms with the fact that every single surface in our entire apartment is covered in baby heinie germs by now...

  2. I have a vague notion of using a day planner this year. Pretty inspirational, no?

    1. Well it helped you get your Quick Takes show on the road a day early so I'd say - YES :) Gotta get me one of those...

  3. Um, your girls are precious. Crayon on the walls and bare bottom on the pillow and all.

    And these goals sound pretty lofty to me. I have -100 knowledge points about blog design which is why I sought outside help. And potty training? Ihhhhhhh...

    1. Oh they are most definitely lofty...I think I've only brushed Ava's hair once so far this year hahahahaha
