Please tell me I am not the only one who hasn’t done a resolution yet? I mean, I did see the New Year in but I was complaining about how much I wanted to sleep from 9:30pm onwards so thinking of a resolution was out of the question.
As a new mom, the kind of resolutions I want to make are:
- Have more sleep
- Shower more
- Make an effort with my appearance
- Wear a bra more often.
Truth be told, I’m only interested in the first one. Dillon has slept through the night for months now but I can’t get over that feeling of exhaustion.
I’m still being advised to ‘sleep when they sleep’ but when Dillon sleeps, I’m only interested in one thing and that is a hot cup of coffee and some normal tv.
And who wants to wear a bra anyway?
As a wife, the kind of resolutions I’d like to make are:
- Learn to cook
- Tidy up more often
- Be more attentative to my husband
- Be more motivated to communicate and not just make random gargle noises.
I don’t cook and I’m a low standard kind of cleaning person. If we lived in the 1950s where it was expected to be a good housewife, to clean and cook meals I would fail miserably. I would be a spinster.
I could make some resolutions to change my perception of myself, to better myself, to become a better person towards others.
All that would require the energy to 1: put a bra on and 2: put make up on.
Okay. If I think really hard about what kind of resolutions I want to make and stick to being a first time, tired mom. It would be these, in no particular order:
- I want to take time for myself and not just as a treat.
- I want to love what I see in the mirror.
- I will get into a routine of eating healthy but I won’t be strict on myself.
- I want to make more of an effort to regain a social life, more importantly, time with my husband.
- I want to become better at organising myself and my home. It’s completely cluttered.
- I want to become more patient
- I want to learn to cook after learning how to be patient.
- I want to find a way to be a stay at home mom and earn enough to support my husband with the bills.
- Or; I want to become successful in a career I’d be happy in.
- I want to not panic about turning 30.
I think 10 is a healthy double figure number just like the number 30. Which I will not obsess over. I will not, I will not, I will not!!
