Despite all the glitter, bubbles and optimism, New Year's Eve was never my favorite holiday. Not even close. But as a mom, it has taken on a completely new importance -- and it's so much fun!
We get so busy that it's hard to reflect on our day, let alone an entire year. But it's so very important to get introspective once in a while, and to feel gratitude for the blessings in our lives, the unexpected curveballs that life has thrown us, the place that we are in at this very moment, the wide open, unblemished future.
And balloon drops and noisemakers aside, kids love any excuse to celebrate. Chatting with them about the past year, looking through old photos and mapping out a plan for the next 12 months together is a really special way to spend part of New Year's Eve.
We've made it all a little bit simpler with this free printable. Grab the markers and let them color code their answers, then hang it up somewhere to serve as a reminder of their goals.
Here's to a bright, shiny New Year!
