Word of the Year

I loved this idea from a couple of years ago and was just reminded of it on my friend's blog (love my friends!).

My word for the year is  

When I look back I want to remember the fun times with my kids.

When I look back I want to say I learned to not take myself too seriously! 

When my kids look back I don't want them to say, "Mom never laughed." 

I don't want to ever hear my kids say (as they did a year or so ago), "Wow, Mom, I've never heard your really laugh like that."  sigh.

When I look back I want to recognize that I laughed in the moment of mishaps, not just after the fact. 

And, most importantly, I want to really laugh with my husband.  :-)  

Did you know, "On average, children laugh 400 times a day, while adults laugh about 15 times (The Power of Laughter)?"  How sad is that.  I want to be the adult that beats out the kids on that one.

Wish me luck!
