I’ve been pondering how to write my review of 2012 for a while and inspiration has not been my friend on this one - until I saw this week’s listicle topic on NorthWest Mommy’s website!
2012 in 10 tweets - make that 12, one for each month and I’m in!

I like to think I’m multi-tasking, but I’m really just procrastinating simultaneoulsy on Twitter, Facebook and Tumblr.— Kerstin Auer (@kerstinauer) February 27, 2012
Last night I got to watch my husband eat ice cream directly out of the container while using a dish towel as a bib. Be still my heart.— Kerstin Auer (@kerstinauer) March 16, 2012
About to step out of my comfort zone and drink a Raspberry Fizz Martini for the first time. This business trip is really challenging.— Kerstin Auer (@kerstinauer) April 24, 2012
MIL to husband:”Tuck your shirt in! It’s windy!” Son to husband: *whip-cracking motion and sound*. He is now my favourite child!— Kerstin Auer (@kerstinauer) May 22, 2012
Yes, people, this is where I will be camping this weekend! twitter.com/kerstinauer/st…— Kerstin Auer (@kerstinauer) June 15, 2012
Son invented new unit of measure. It’s called “Auer Hour” and he charges $10 to do chores per Auer Hour, but it’s only 15 min long. Genius.— Kerstin Auer (@kerstinauer) July 21, 2012
Another one off the bucket list: thanks to my daughter I was the FIRST person at Walmart this morning. So she could buy the Hunger Games DVD— Kerstin Auer (@kerstinauer) August 18, 2012
11 yo boys still have full-blown tantrums on public streets over a sock feeling funny in a shoe. Just an FYI for y’all.— Kerstin Auer (@kerstinauer) September 27, 2012
My husband’s man-cold is so exhausting that I had to take a long nap. I feel better now.— Kerstin Auer (@kerstinauer) October 13, 2012
I accidentally answered the phone when my husband’s wacko sister called and I had to pretend that I’m the French-speaking maid.— Kerstin Auer (@kerstinauer) November 28, 2012
My husband acts like this PMS business comes easy to me. He has no idea what kind of restraint I actually have to exercise.— Kerstin Auer (@kerstinauer) December 21, 2012
And a bonus one, because 13 is my favourite and lucky number:
Son:”What would anyone buy a dildo for?” Daughter:”That’s for women without boyfriends. Next thing you know they’ll invent rubber vaginas.”— Kerstin Auer (@kerstinauer) April 2, 2012
Happy New Year, everyone!
