I Hate New Year's Resolutions

Since the boys have been out of state with their grandparents for the last few days, I've had the chance to take a breath and figure out how to be a better mother this year (read: calm down and stop yelling so much). Like the rest of society, I hate making--and breaking--New Year's resolutions, but I feel like I have to try. So here are my top three parenting-related goals for 2012:
  • Enforce nap/rest time (for all of us!)
  • Start having the boys sit in the corner (I hate the term "time-out")
  • Bite the bullet and stop responding to whining ("I'll listen to you when you speak nicely")
I have about 12 more things written down, but we can tackle those later.
