In Case You Missed It:
Happy New Year, GEMs! We’re hoping that you are all having a fantastic start to 2015! Have a look at some of the great topics we covered here this week in case your week happened to fly by quickly just like ours did.
I always love to read how Rene’s perspective changes a bit with the beginning of each new year when she updates her Life Lessons.

As parents, we all have a few things we regret as we’re on the path to raising our children. Hopefully, we’re doing the best we can as we travel down the road of life and learning from our mistakes along the way. Julia shared her Tales From A Twin Mom: My 4, 2014 Parenting Regrets with us and number three is my very favorite and definitely resonates with me. Let us know which one hits home for you!
In this week’s 10 From GEM, Rene gave us 10 Parenting Resolutions For 2015 – I’m loving these because often times, I put resolutions for myself on hold and try to focus on everyone else in the family. These Parenting Resolutions give us a great way to focus on both! I love number one because, as we all know, there can be SO MANY battles to fight and it’s really important to choose which hill we want to die on – and not because we wonder if someone else will approve or not like Rene mentions in number six. Love number five too! Which one is your favorite? Let us know in the comments!
Rene shared Monday Morning Motivation: 6 Must-Do Habits for 2015 that she’s going to grow and develop to keep the momentum going. What will you do to ensure your success?
