It is always fun to look back on a year and think, “Wow, that happened THIS year?” Time is a funny thing.
The year started off with 10 Things I had no intention of changing. I did pretty well with the exception of my little dancers who are trying to become Karate Kids.
But then I had the plague and shared all the reasons Moms can NEVER, EVER be sick. The plague sucks. Truly.
I rounded out the month with truly brilliant unmotivational cleaning tips. I do what I can. It’s possible that cleaning is NOT my forte.
February is always so brutal and cold in my neck of the woods. I spend most of the month waiting for better weather. All that waiting inspires some fairly awesome discoveries, such as the fact that teenagers and toddlers have an awful lot in common. It’s a good thing they are both cute.
It is also the time of year that I make trips to McDonald’s out of sheer desperation to 1.)Leave my house and 2.)Allow small people to run free.
Remember that lady who wrote the letter to the Mom telling her to put the Iphone down? Well, I do. And I decided to cut her a little slack. Being a SAHM requires a lot of “watch me do this” 5 million times.
So it turns out that February may also be on the boring side of life around my house, but by March we spice things up a bit. I made a startling discovery that my children are very much like professional basketball players. You know, the fake bumping into one another. The over dramatic rolling around on the floor clutching a body part and screaming in pain. It’s really exciting. Or something.
And since March is enough time away from Christmas to have truly discovered which presents were worthwhile and which ones you wish you had never bought, I offered my 2 cents on the beloved Furby. Lets just say that when the batteries died, I conveniently forgot to buy new ones for about six months.
After that, we were all abducted by aliens. We had the bruises to prove it and we made ourselves some protection gear just in case.
It was a good first quarter of the year. It seems so far away as we approach Christmas, but I know this next year will fly by too.
What was the biggest thing to happen in your first quarter of 2013?
