As the end of the year approaches, I thought it would be nice to take a quiet moment to reflect on the past 12 months. You know - sum up what I've learned, what I need to work on, how my children have grown and inspired me...
But that sounded like way too much work.
So instead, I'm just going to reflect on my favorite posts over 2010. It's been quite a crazy year at Twinsomnia, if I do say so myself!
January: Ashley and I had a deep conversation while finger painting. She really makes me think, you know? Also, I posted pictures of the boys wearing fake moustaches when they were babies. Babies wearing fake moustaches!!!!!! How can you not click on that?!?!
February: In February, I got a really bad haircut. And thus learned the importance of bringing a picture to show your stylist instead of trying to describe the haircut you want. I also showed the kids Star Wars for the very first time. Hey, did you know that there are robots in it?
March: I realized the importance of supervising your child's craft projects - especially when they expect you to hang them on the fridge when they're done. I was also horrified by an episode of Little Bear. The things they show on children's tv!!!
April: I was almost killed by a barbecue. Carpe diem, my friends - you never know when it's all gonna end.
May: I explained why Scott's the one who handles car issues in our household. But I don't care what you say, that thing looked like a helicopter.
June: A gorilla fell in love with me. Yup. I've still got it. Also, I realized that Owen is an evil genius.
July: July was a big month for me - it was the start of both Little Things That Make Me Stupid Excited and Date Night Challenge. And yeah - I know I've gotta get back on that date night challenge thing.
August: Speaking of Date Night Challenge, my favorite one we did was Breakfast in Bed, which included a video reenactment by Scott and I of key scenes from the 80's classic - The Breakfast Club. If you didn't check it out then, you really should now. There may be dancing. And lots of emoting. I think I missed my calling as an actress.
September: In September, the kids went back to school. And Ashley made a really great impression on her teacher with her riddle-solving skills.
October: I attempted to make a wreath out of candy corn and almost burned off all of my fingerprints in the process.
November: I lamented my lack of understanding of the sport of football. Still don't get it. Also, I invented the Booger Turkey.
December: Scott came up with a fantastic idea for a book. Maybe we'll see it published in 2011. ;-)
Hope you've all enjoyed the ride this year! I know I have. Thanks for reading, everybody!
