A new year is upon us, quicker they go as older I get! As I am now a parent I feel like adulthood has hit me full on! I have never really made resolutions, I've always thought about it as in "hmm what should I change this year" but have never have I set anything in writing to reflect back on through the year! This weeks theme at mamasaysom is uberlist! With the ultimate goal of 107 things for 2007! I'm not sure if I'll come up with 107 right now, and I give props to jemma for being the first one to contribute to mamasaysom with 107 things this year! Okay enough babbling, here's my list!
