Meet your Portland Red Tricycle writers, bringing the best of the best parent stuff to you on the regular. Not only are they an uber-talented, hard-working crew, they’re also moms, dads and community-minded folks just like you –braving the throngs of hipsters at the latest food carts, composting everything, washing mountains of cloth diapers and stomping through thick mud in the rain to find the perfect holiday tree. Read on to find out what they’re hopeful for and working hard to accomplish in 2016. Happy New Year, Portland readers! We love you!

My resolution for 2016 is to have more family dance parties in the mornings when we're getting ready. Spontaneous dancing instantly brightens the mood and creates some fun and connection before we all go our separate ways for the day. Monday mornings will even better when we're listening to "Happy" and dancing around the kitchen!

What’s your resolution for the new year? Let us know in the comments below!
