Happy New Year


Henry's vacation combined with the fourteen feet of snow dumped on us rendered most of our plans for the week impossible, so we sat around. And around, and around. And oh my, it was glorious. Some days I didn't get out of my pajamas. Some days I ate nothing but Christmas cookies until noon. I went to the gym yesterday, and my yoga pants were noticeably tighter. Surely this is a coincidence.

My Redbook posts for the week were only now put up, due to editors being unavailable (thanks, inclement weather!). So here you are, in the waning light of 2010:

First, a highly biased list of some of the best parenting-related tweets of 2010. Please let me know what I missed--I bet there are some goodies.

And second, a look at New Year's resolutions. In which I name my inner critic Wanda. She TOTALLY deserved it.

Happy new year, everyone. Thank you for reading, and commenting, and being wonderful in general. I get a little choked up when I think of how much this blog, and all of you, have brought me and my family. And I think 2011's going to be amazing for us all. This is our year! TEAM!

Alice -- I'm so glad to find your blog. And I do very much like your short hair. I don't have the nerve to have short hair. I don't want my neck-sag to be so vulnerably exposed (and I do have a slight hunch on the back of my neck, but don't tell anyone). In any case I would love to follow you, but I am new around the blogosphere and not exactly sure how that works. But will bookmark you. And I want to see a photo of the jeans even if I can't buy them. Because if I like them it might be a good excuse to go to New York. Thanks, Shannon

Happy New Year, Alice!!!!

2010 bit my butt big time. (Was reminded of just how much when I combed through the year for my 2010 "best of" wrap-up post)

Here's to a terrific 2011 for one and all!

now it's january and the snow is still here. I'm wondering how long I can use "the snow" as an excuse for not getting done all that needs to be done...and am also delighted that I can now justify my own constant intake of christmas cookies by pointing to your blog: "hey, it's on finslippy so it's okay! BACK OFF and don't touch the shortbread." I figure at least thru the weekend, right?

Tell Wanda to shut her yap because you are wonderful. So enjoy your writing. Happy New Year and give that puppy a big kiss, despite the death breath.

Thanks for the parenting tweets. I had missed most of them. And my yoga pants were tight before Christmas. What to do? What to do?

Happy New Year.

Happy New Year!
My yoga pants are tighter too. I think that's just because I didn't wear them enough over xmas, and now they've shrunk. Anyway, yoga pants are SUPPOSED to be tight. It's the whole point of them!

Those parenting Tweets are priceless! Thank you so much, it's been a fun pleasure following your blog.
