It's a new year! A time to look forward and make positive changes in our lives. Perhaps I will make a concerted effort to see the world through less snarky and a little more sweet set of eyes. Perhaps I will catch up on the Mt. Everest sized pile of laundry that constantly accumulates. Or, perhaps the the 8yr old will stop creating the best blog fodder I could ever hope for. Perhaps...
While playing a very intense game of Monopoly during winter break the 8yr old pauses, dips his nose into the whipped cream on top of his ice cream, and loudly announces to us ..."I am the Queen of Jamaica!"
The 11yr old chimes in ..."Ignore him. You should never have let him watch 'Cool Runnings'. He always says that now."
"Okay. But, don't you mean you are the King of Jamaica?"
"No Mon. I am the Queen of Jamaica, Mon. Just look at my hair."
Okay, so perhaps things will not change in 2011. Maybe it's best if things just stay the same! Happy New Year!
