We make resolutions in our family. Setting goals with the hope of a better year can only be good idea, I always say. This year Harlo made some resolutions of her own and it went like this:
After explaining to her about the new year, 2012, and setting goals for us to do through the new year is a good idea, she quickly made up her own list.
Harlo: Coloring with more purple and green and red.
Me: hmm.. that sounds pretty.
Harlo: I want to play with my tooth fairies more in 2012. (“tooth fairies” are her tinkerbell and friends barbies)
Harlo: You hear that sound? (hand at her ear) It’s Kitty Figaro.
Harlo: Yeah, that’s my kitty. (she changes the cat’s name on a bi-yearly basis.. we’ll see how Figaro sticks in 2012)
Harlo: I want to go to Santa’s birthday party in 2012.
Me: Oh, Santa’s birthday? That sounds fun.
Harlo: Yeah.. I missed it last year. (with a face full of concern)
Me: Okay, well my goal for 2012 is taking more pictures of you and Stella. Do you think you can help me with that?
Harlo: Ummmmmmm….. yeah, we can take pictures of cakes!
