become a mom, your whole life changes. Priorities, free time, activities and
things that were simple before become quite different. This includes your new
year's resolutions. Sure, you could make a bunch of resolutions that you'll
never actually follow through with, or you could stick with these much more
1. Get at
least four hours of sleep a night. Now this may seem like a long shot, but you can
do it, mama! I mean, granted, if your little angel allows it.

better for everyone involved.
3. Try to
take fewer than 100 photos of your child per day. This will prevent your phone
from running out of memory in a week! But it won't be easy, I know.
out of the door at least once a week. That's not too much to ask, right? I know
it's hard to get yourself ready and also dress and feed the baby and get out of

enough before guzzling the whole cup. Avoid a burnt tongue as much as possible
9. Stick within some sort
of reasonable budget when it comes to baby clothes. You will want to buy all of
the things, but they will grow out of them so fast. So yes, it's all cute, but
no,you don't need it. Not all of it, anyway.
10. Don't forget about
yourself. Treat yourself to a shower, and maybe even a shampoo! And the
delicacy of perhaps one hot meal a week. Oh, what a treat!
