Rob's New Years Resolution

I really like what Rob came up for his New Years resolution and we are mandating the children to do it too...Rob's resolution is to do one thing a day for everyone in the family...it can be something small, like laying out the kids shoes for me the night before...or something big, like letting me sleep in on his day off. Then writing it down and sharing it at the end of the week. We are making the kids do this too, they have to tell us what they did for someone, and we'll write it down for them, it can be anything from playing a game the other wants to play or doing the other persons chores, anything... the point is to get them thinking about the other person and doing something nice for them. I guess like pay it forward. Then at the end of the week, we'll go threw and read what everyone did for each other. They are not too thrilled w/ the idea, but hopefully once we start doing it, they'll get into it. I think that's such a great idea, and will be such a positive experience for our family.
