1- Become a more confident mum, I often feel like such a failure when it comes to motherhood and feel like people see me as that too. I want that to change.
2- Keep up with the housework and get the house organised. Some days I can let it get on top of me so I want to make it a routine to get bits done before I do anything else.
3- Lose weight, or at the very least be more healthy.
4- Reduce the amount of time I spend on my phone and spend more time playing with Pops, even if she does always want me to sit on the freezing cold floor.
5- Do my hair more and wear my pj’s less – pretty self explanatory. I never spend time getting ready now I have a toddler and it definitely shows.
5 Blog wishes;
1- Bring my DA up to 25. That may not make sense to most people but the higher the number the better in the world of blogging.
2- Earn a regular income through sponsored posts – not too many but i would love for the blog to help contribute to our family.
3 – Post at least 2/3 times a week. I can be hit and miss with my updates so I want to start being more consistent.
4 – Start a linky. A linky is where a bunch of bloggers can link up and share posts about the same topic.
5 – Collaborate with other bloggers. I’d love to work with other bloggers on posts. I’m not sure who or what yet but I definitely want to get something sorted.
5 Family wishes;
1- Spend weekends doing fun things and not always sorting out the house.
2- Buy our first home – something weve always wanted to do but finding it more of a struggle since i give up work to have Pops.
3- Have baby number 2 or at least plan for it.
4- Decorate the house.(if we haven’t managed to buy our own)
5- To watch Pops grow into an even more kind and loving little girl, to watch her start preschool and learn and develop.
5 Hopes & wishes for 2017;
1- Interact with our blog readers more. I’d love to get to know you all more and see what you want more of from the blog.
2- I hope my family and friends stay healthy and happy.
3- To teach myself and Pops Turkish.
4- For pops to enjoy preschool and be able to strive, develop and become an independent (not too much) little lady.
5- Date nights, I want to spend the year being more of a couple and not just parents so hopefully making regular date nights will help.
I’m tagging the following blogs to post their 20 wishes;
Hannah – Hansplans.
Hannah – The Ampletts.
Mandi – Big family little adventures.
Sophie – Life as Mrs D.
and Laura – Five little doves.
Until the next post,
Are and Pops.
