Getting closer to another New Year....Start the Resolutions

As we move in closer to another New Year 2010, I am going to try something different this year. I am actually go to make resolutions that I have a shot at keeping up with.  I am going to pick 5 things to work on, a new one each day this week ending with one on Friday and Fridays Final Thoughts.

Resolution #1. Be a better Father. This is something I really need to work on for the sake of This Daddy, T and the 4 C's. I have come to realize that as my children grow up, I need to also. I need to find the fountain of patience and bath in it for about a week straight. I forget way to often that my C's are children. Just because they are smart and can get things done without me, doesn't mean I can expect them to not act like kids. I have trouble with my patience and temper and flying off the handle at the kids and I have to change that. I want my C's to grow and respect us and themselves and bossing, yelling, acting like a drill sergeant towards them doesn't work. I have to read more and learn how to teach them more instead of just telling them what or how to do, I need to show them and I need to learn how to do a better job of leading by example and before I do that I need to be a better example. So for starting off 2010 I am going to make a huge effort to change myself as a daddy.  I know this will make This Daddys life better, T's life better and most importantly the 4 C's life better.

That's a great resolution. Hubby and I talk often about expecting too much from our 5 and 2 year old. I tend to get impatient and forget that most of the crazy and irritating behavior is just what they do at that age!
