Maternity Lists

Truly crazy thoughts go through the minds of new mothers.

An actual list I wrote while 9 months pregnant and thinking about my maternity leave:

To do during leave:

  1. Scrapbook
  2. Clean out all closets (approximately 5, including a walk-in)
  3. Train for a 10K (not really a runner)
  4. Weave a basket
  5. Garden
  6. Tile the master bathroom (I’ve never tiled anything)

An actual list my husband left to me before leaving for work, while I was home on leave:

Try and do everyday:

  1. Eat lunch
  2. Brush your teeth
  3. Talk to someone
  4. Step outside

** note, showering was not on this list
