To correctly start off the New Year you should reflect on the year that has just passed.
Therefore, as my sister, her husband, their three children and I sat around their dining room table on Dec. 31, we all listed the high points for 2009.
My sister said her oldest son, Connor, doing spectacular in kindergarten and expanding the family to include their golden retriever, Bruno as among her favorite events of 2009.
My brother-in-law said he has enjoyed his 4-year-old daughter, Mairen, offering her assistance with household chores.
I can’t remember Connor’s and Mairen’s highlights – they were caught up in the excitement of the moment and had so many possibilities to select from: Mairen enrolled in had pre-school and ballet classes, while Connor attended kindergarten and hockey lessons.
They also received a dog that is their giant, white, curly-haired friend as well as the privilege to have grandparents who are just 10 minutes away to host birthday parties, Thanksgiving dinners and a scattering of sleepovers.
Their youngest son, Colin, hasn’t spoken words but he merrily chirped away that night, which seemed to indicate that he had a good year, too.
