With just a handful of days left prebaby, I have been accumulating a mental checklist of to do's. In trying to keep life simple, my to do lists have gone by the wayside. And in looking toward maternity leave, I imagine the concept of a timetable will become foreign save for the rising and falling of the sun. But in these last days of pregnancy, here's what I hope to do:
*Go to a local farm to find out what kind of goodies they have
*Purchase knitting supplies so I can learn how to knit
*Get maternity portraits taken
*Finish reading A Wrinkle in Time
*Take lots of naps and watch as much TV as I want
My postbaby list is quite a bit more extensive, but I prefer to keep it in my head so I can forget things I want to do and not get overwhelmed. And in the interest of keeping life simple, I don't want any lists or goals hanging over my head as I adjust to being a mama. Really, nothing on a to do list can compare to the big to do of motherhood.
