11 Upcoming Trends in A Mom’s World — what’s hot, what’s out

Instead of reflecting about last year or setting goals for this year, I thought I’d give you predictions for what’s gonna be hot in A Mom’s World this year. (Sugar-free? That was so 2011! 2012 will be filled with all that’s sweet!)


     2011                                  2012


Raising my voice to get the kids’ attention                Using a bullhorn to get the kids’ attention

Picking up after the kids                                            Throwing away what the kids don’t pick up

Time outs                                                                  Manual labor

Cooking for the masses                                            Cooking what I like

Moon Dough                                                             Old-school Play-Dough

Red wine                                                                   White wine

iTunes                                                                       My acoustic guitar

Staying up to watch bad TV                                      Staying up to read good books

Chocolate as self-medication                                    Chocolate as breakfast

Writing for publication                                                Writing for myself

Being grumpy                                                            Being grateful


What do you hope will change in your world? Stay the same?

Cheers to a wonderful year to come!

    • Thank you, Ruth! Sometimes it’s hard to remember to be grateful, especially in the thick of chaos, but I want to try to do better at it this year! Also, chocolate.

  1. Great ideas Jen. I know you’ll be able to keep some of them. But reallly,a bull horn to get the kids attention seems drastic to me.

    Being grateful is the most important thing you do. It’s easy if you do it 1 day at a time and have remined notes posted on your computer.

    Love U

  2. After I originally left a comment I appear to have clicked the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and from now on every time a comment is added I receive four emails with the exact same comment. Perhaps there is a means you can remove me from that service? Kudos!

    • Hi there! Sorry about that — I have no idea what happened there. Could you tell me which post it was, and I’ll see what I can do? 🙂
