I wanted to know if my kids understood what New Year’s Resolutions entailed since most adults don’t fully understand the concept, so I asked them outright. Their first answers went something like, “pizza” and “playing”! While enthusiastic, my preassessment of their knowledge of the word “resolution” told me that they either resolved to eat more pizza or play more or they had no idea what the heck I just asked them. I then explained that I resolution was a goal for the year and started with Squeaker. This round of questioning went slightly better.
8 Whopping New Year’s Resolutions From My Kids
Squeaker’s New Year’s Resolutions:
- For Himself: To do better at math.
- For Mommy: To do better at work. (he clearly knows nothing about my work life)
- For Daddy: To do better at work. (well, I suppose Daddy could make a little more money…)
- For Brother: Drawing a picture.
Big Guy’s New Year’s Resolutions:
- For Himself: to get better at daycare. (I have no idea what this actually means)
- For Mommy: playing at the house.
- For Daddy: playing at the house.
- For Brother: to work on kissing. (Don’t ask. I tried, and I couldn’t figure it out. Probably best left unanswered.)

So, in summary, I suppose my husband and I both need to do better at work and playing at the house. Squeaker will get better at math and, um, kissing… (maybe just math). Big Guy will work on drawing a picture (more pictures, actually) and “get better at daycare.” Our family resolutions have so been set by our children, and they shall not be forsaken.
