Happy New Year! Welcome 2015!!

Happy New Year from Lucky Seven Family!

It’s January 1, 2015 and time to make New Year’s resolutions for Lucky Seven Family!

1.  Focus on gratitude – I want our children to appreciate what they have; not only physical possessions – more importantly, the lifelong connections they are making and the incredible experiences they are fortunate enough to enjoy.

2.  Relax!  This one is really a reminder to myself.  When we are together as a blended family, I often find myself trying to make everything the “perfect” occasion.  Whether it is a dinner, an outing or other event, this year my goal is to enjoy our time together and not worry too much about “how it is supposed to be”.  #Live the moment!

3.  Find one way to connect with each of the kids this year and use it to grow my relationship with each child.  Some of my current ideas are:  muscle cars, basketball, tennis, and brain games.  This will be a fun way to learn more about the children and learn something new; all with the goal of growing important relationships!

BIRTHDAYS!  Today is the youngest child’s birthday – how appropriate then, to discuss birthday celebrations!  Given our geographic distance, we cannot always celebrate birthdays together on the actual birth date.  However, we make it an important point to celebrate when we are together.  By doing so, we provide an opportunity for the children to grow closer together by recognizing each child’s important day.  Celebrations don’t have to be over the top — a special dinner that the birthday child gets to choose, a “champagne” (sparkling grape juice!) toast to the birthday child, a special outing or a small gift provides the birthday child special recognition within our blended family.
