I’ve never been a New Year's person. The idea of an overhyped, overpriced night on the town wasn’t usually my idea of a good time. The best New Year's I’ve had were spent with close friends, at home with good food and perhaps an inappropriately competitive board game.
As chronically sleep-deprived parents, Dilip and I now have a better excuse than ever before to stay home (and hopefully fall asleep) well before midnight. That’s pretty much exactly what we planned to do to ring in 2013.
But I do think that this time of year is the perfect time to reflect on our past actions, celebrate our accomplishments and plan how to build an even better life in the future.
I’m so proud of how far Syona has come in the past year. She’s celebrated so many milestones — from finding a way to move around on her own to making new sounds. Her wins are my wins. And my biggest accomplishment is seeing her happy and content. I want to make sure that as a parent I give her as much as I can to continue propelling her forward and I know that will require a few things on my part in 2013.
