This morning my 2YO & I went to Target for a few items that we needed. She’s been overdue for an outing (it has been COLD where we live and it seems everyone has some sort of illness, so we’ve been hibernating,) and overdue for some Mommy & B one on one time since little brother came along.

The little goof was up to her usual tricks as we made our way through the store, and on our way out the door, she made eye contact with a 20-something guy who was browsing the sports apparel.

“Ahoy, mate!”

I couldn’t help but laugh when I saw the look on his face– an expression that said, “Wtf?”

It was awkward, friendly, random, and silly. What would you have done if a strange child greeted you like that?

The reason for the resolution is this: sometimes, toddlers are tough creatures. Sometimes, I get distracted by my to-do list and forget to see the silly. This year, I’m going to make an effort to “be light” and LAUGH. It’s so, so worth it.
