Well, for my parenting plan, this month I’m working on going to the gym 3 or more times a week so I can have more energy to spend some extra quality time with my kids. It’s a New Year’s Resolution of sorts. Last week I went to the gym 4 times. I haven’t found that I have had more energy though. Maybe it will take more time and patience is not a virtue I was blessed with.
I had a rough day yesterday, I was really tired and grumpy. I have found my kids don’t care. They will crawl in bed with me or jump on the couch next to where I’m sitting and just want to talk, even on (my) bad days. That’s why I love them so much because they are so forgiving. I have such a long way to go to becoming better and I’m constantly aware of that. I do feel better when I’m trying. Not every week of this parenting plan has been a success for me and I’m sure there will be many in the future that bomb big time, but I’d like to keep trying despite failures and look forward to successes. I’m going to keep up with this and I will let you know how it goes next week!
Please post a comment if you have any suggestions for me!
