It’s the time of year when everyhuman thinks about resolutions. They want to climb higher, do better, get healthier, and be happier. They swear they’re going to eat right, get organized, be creative, and break all their bad habits.
I’m here to say, resolutions can be fun. I resolve to:
Knock over the garbage pail.
Push through the baby gate.
Sleep on top of the bedspread when Mom isn’t home.
Eat a shoe.
Drink from the toilet.
And bite my winter coat AND BOOTS.
Mom’s resolutions are a little more modest. She will:
Read 200 picture books again (and drink 200 chai lattes).
Submit 10 stories to publishers, agents, RYS, or her online writing group.
Write 10 brand new stories.
And meditate 4 times a week (she’ll need it).
