The 2010 Mommy & Wife

Ok, so still feeling the newness of the new year, I have been trying to use this week to get the Kennedy family organized and in some kind of routine. I do enjoy routines/schedules/lists but don't always stick to them (even though I do LOVE to make them). However, this week between cleaning, organizing, trial and error, I think I am going to be able to get on board with some mommy & wife 2010 goals for myself. I mean who doesn't want to feel like the best mommy & wife ever?!

Now, first off I am not perfect by any means nor do I want to be. BUT...I would like to feel like I am doing my best daily for my 3 boys. I am very blessed to have the life I have and not to mention the time I have. The Kennedy house is more or less pretty mellow, day in and day out, and truly God has blessed us with a very peaceful existence we can truly enjoy. SO...I am going to do my best to not take it for granted. I will be content and happy being a great mommy to Cutter and Christian AND a very appreciative and loving wife to Collin.

After all...I think they are worth it!!!

So, this post is really about ME! I figured if I put the words out there it might help me stay in check and committed to what I want to accomplish. Let's get started...shall we???


1. Boys in bed at 8 pm.
2. READ, READ, READ with Cutter and Christian.
3. Consistent discipline
4. Teeth brushed 2x a day...UGH! (not gonna lie, not one of best duties)
5. Play more with them...use 1 on 1 time better with them.


1. Take better care of house, so Collin feels more relaxed after working.
2. Be more appreciative & loving.
3. Cooking
4. Being financially responsible
5. Quality time with Collin (the boys in bed @ 8 will help with this)


I will make sure to be my best to my family that I will take time for myself too.

That's it...I guess I am on my way to that perfection I talked about...HA...wish me luck!!!

(Seriously...I can't freakin' figure this font stuff out...WTH!!!)


  1. those are some serouse goals and im loving them, especialy the date night thing, os dose that mean you might actually come to something? im hopin so.

    those boys are oh so lucky to have you!!!

  2. Great goals, Lorie. I don't even bother thinking about goals becuase they are out the window at the first sign of chaos. I'm sure you'll reach yours though. :-) Happy 2010!
