How the heck we are already in 2019 I will never understand… but nevertheless a new year means a new list… and I think it is going to be fun.
I feel like… well I am hoping 2019 is going to be a year of home and family, where we get to do things together and make the most of our family time. A year for good health (minus all the childcare bugs we are bound to pick up), activities and learning. I am not sure if we will be able to cross everything off the list, but we will give it a good crack.
We are up to list number 11 this year… pretty nuts ey? So if you are new here… firstly welcome… but you might want to check out some of the old lists here: 2006, 2007, 2010, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017 & 2018). What can you expect from this year’s list? Well like normal… some self improvement tasks (physical, spiritual and mental), some fun tasks, some things I just have to do and some more baby friendly things… because mum life is now in full swing.
Seeing as Isaac did so well on his list this year he gets another one too, it has been fun to document some of his milestones through here… and I really hope to do a better job of it this year, because really that’s a long standing goal… be better at blogging interesting things more consistently. Anyway, enough chat… my list is below and you can read Isaac’s here.
