     Learning from a spot of whimsy about writing a letter of intention has really pumped me up for 2011. I have never been one to make resolutions or even set goals. It's too easy to "fail" and then feel guilty...doesn't fit in with my idea of being positive and sending out positive energy to others. But writing a "letter of intentions" is simply listing the things you intend to do this year - clean closets, finish writing a book, donate blood, start a family game night - whatever you'd like to accomplish. Check the list 3 or 4 times a year to see how you're doing. The list can then continue from year to year if you wish. It's so much more positive in feel and therefor more lighthearted and easy-going.  I actually already donated blood this year...the first time in over twenty-five years!! It felt good!
     Do you intend to have fun with your kids, both indoors and out??
Bundle up and spend time together.

     Can you instill manners and good behavior, but still let loose and laugh with each other? You should be able to work toward that "intention"! Give it a try!!

Have Fun!
Happy Parenting!
