THE NEW YEAR'S RESOLUTIONS OF L, AGED 5
I will keep my room tidy.
I will always hold a parent's hand when crossing the road.
I will not put my hand over my mouth and then blow yukky stuff out of my nose.
I will always go to sleep within five minutes of going to bed.
I will (not) always loudly ask for things when I go to the mall.
If I discover how to be invisible I will not go around punching people.
I will not lock myself in shop changing rooms because I don't want to try on a larger size that a parent has gone to get.
I will wear shorts in summer and not fleecy black tracksuit pants with thick socks and a long-sleeved top.
I will always be kind, honest, generous and gracious to all living beings, especially my mama.
