This year we will be kind.

In December I asked all the children about their resolutions for the 2015.   After getting sarcastic answers,  (sarcasm is a native language in my home)  I decided to make an universal decision for everyone.  As a mother and dictator of this house it is my prerogative to make rules as and when I feel like it.  To get my minions to abide with these rules might be another story, but I’m starting to ramble.  Back to the 2015 resolution.

This year, in this house, We are going to be kind.  Hopefully being kind at home will spill over into being a good human being but for now we are going to concentrate on being kind to everyone who lives under my roof.

I think the world can do with an extra bit of kindness and the best place to start is at home.  There might also be a chance that I will end up with less children in the end of 2015 than what I started with if I do not teach them to be nicer to each other.

To make this concrete I made a list of things as examples on how to be kind especially for my kids, but you are welcome to use it.
