Okay, so I decided to take the challenge to make a list of to dos. I began most enthusiastically knowing the first things on my list were already completed so I could immediately check them off. Then the momentum began to slow to till it hit the wall. Nearly four pages of to dos later... I began to cry. "This is ridiculous", I said aloud as my two year old repeated that same phrase.
This stupid magazine said that there is usually a list of 43 things that a mom-to-be would have on her list..............Mine was more like 43 million!!!
So, I crumpled up the list, opened the garbage can, and dunked it like Michael Jordan! Went back to my clean paper and wrote at the top:
1. Stop taking advice from magazines, especially ones with perfect looking people on them.
That was the beginning and end of my list! Time for me to be gentle on myself and just be proud of the accomplishments made. (Which today's number one accomplishment is that I have not yet peed my pants or farted....unintentionally!)
