The Happiness Project: February

I'm a little slow getting my February goals in gear, but better late than never, right?  This month's resolutions are well-timed.  As I am struggling to keep my chin above water, my family relationships are suffering.  It's a good time for Mommy boot camp.

This month's theme is "Connect with kids."  I chose a Louise Hay quote as a sub-theme: "I allow the playful child within me to emerge and have fun."  Yes, I'm a weirdo; having fun does not come naturally to me.  I'm also not the Mom who loves working puzzles and doing crafts and playing Chutes and Ladders.  This month I will work on that, especially with my preschoolers.

My kid-focused goals include: read out loud daily; play on the floor; cultivate a soothing, happy voice; pray for each child individually; praise success; make time for one-on-one.  Hopefully as these new habits become ingrained, we will all be happier!
