to my girls


in my efforts to
ever improve in
the parenting arena,
a few of my thoughts
for the new year include:

relax more
say no less
sympathize more
expect less
play more
lose patience less
explain more
worry less
encourage more
hurry less
savor more

Jen, You are such a great Mom. You have precious children. Alex is a lucky man.

i love that pic of Avi. She's so beautiful. and well said on the resolutions. i hope for all those things, just don't say it nearly as well. nice one.

Beautiful! But, I fear that if you conquer all of those resolutions---you'll be translated. Add---be patient with yourself. You're doing a wonderful job!
