Happy New Year! Resolutions for 2016

Wow- it's been a while. 

Here is why:

Henry was born on November 25 and he is perfect!  I am loving every minute of being a mommy-minus the lack of sleep!  Here's to the little man sleeping more in 2016 :)
Now for my goals for 2016! I am linking up with Aileen Miracle over at Mrs. Miracle's Music Room to share my 2016 goals. 
Personal: I want to be the best mommy I can for Mr. Henry.  He deserves the best and I want to give it to him. I want to love him and cherish him and save money for his education. 
Health: To help loose the baby weight and help Henry get outside as much as possible I want to do at least 2 or 3 Hike-It Baby hikes a month!  If you haven't heard of Hike-It Baby, check out their website!  Moms and dads get together for fun and exercise all with babies and toddlers in tow.  There are toddler-paced hikes, adult paced hikes, coffee strolls and more.  So fun and a great way to meet other parents around town. I have an awesome baby-wearing coat so Henry and I are ready for the chilly Ohio weather!
School: I want to give great 2nd and 4th grade programs this year, despite being on Maternity Leave for 2 months AND having never done a 2nd grade program before.  I am still deciding if I want to do a 2nd grade informance or a program based on a book.  4th grade we always do a multi-cultural showcase with songs and dances from around the world.  I realized last year that many parents didn't know what was happening in the music room during primary years (1-3) because I never showed them! I am hoping this program will help share all the awesome learning that takes place in my room!
Blog/TPT:  I want to really get back into blogging/ making and revising TPT products in the new year.  I have definitely been slacking since my 3rd Trimester hit.  I have so many ideas for products- I just need to make them!  Same with blog posts!  Hopefully I can kick my own behind into gear and get back to sharing with you all!  Speaking of- did you know there is an awesome sale on TPT for the new year- select music stores will all be 20% off on Dec 31 and Jan 1! Check it out! My "Do you Wanna Build a Snowman" matching games will be great for your return to school in January! There are solfa/ rhythm levels, a music symbols version AND an orchestral instruments version. 
What are your 2016 goals??  Share in the comments!
