8 Things... (Reminder Post)

I posted this list a few years ago and its time to post it again. I love this list. Love it. It is so simple and so GREAT! So here you go:
I've had this magical list floating around my house for a few years now and decided it was time to share what it says because I believe we all need these little reminders.

8 "Resolutions" Every Mom Should Make

1. I will embrace the fact that I am not perfect.
2. I will get down on the floor and play with my child(ren) every day.
3. I will take care of my body.
4. I will learn to love the chaos.
5. I will make family dinner a priority.
6. I will focus a little more on my marriage.
7. I will make time for my friends.
8. I will remind myself daily that time with my children is precious.

I remember when you posted this a while ago and loving it. Then I remember dropping by your house one time to pick up my pictures and you were down on the floor playing go fish with one of your little boys and thinking what an awesome mom you are. Thanks for posting this list again. I'll have to print it off and save it for the future :)
