A Mother’s Day Reminder

April 27, 2015

Here is short list of things I am really, really ridiculously behind on right now that I should have done this weekend:

10. Clean the dishes that have been sitting in the sink since last night.

9. Fill out the my May and June calendar in my planner (because apparently the planner in my  head is not as reliable as I once thought). There’s…..just…..too…….much.

8. Plan meals for the week.

which reminds me….

7. When is the last time I’ve cleaned out the pantry?

6. Fill out milestones in the baby books. Mental note: buy a baby book for the “baby” who just turned 2.

5. And while I’m at it, I need to organize all of the photographs on my computer, delete excess, categorize, do a frame size inventory around the house, order prints, then update all the pictures.

4. Change out the kid’s clothes for the new season, box up hand-me-downs, separate clothes to donate, and burn dispose of everything that has seen better days – like everything my third child is wearing.

3. Figure out what that smell is in my car.

2. Match socks. (*gag*)

1. Look through the kid’s papers and volunteer for “things”. Then mark them down in the planner, set alerts on the phone, and book babysitters to care for the siblings.

I really wanted to check at least one of these things off my list this weekend.

Yet my list remains untouched……

…because it was sunny out. I got a new toy. And, guess what?

I got over my list.

Thank you to Micro Kickboard for this ridiculously fun scooter which successfully distracted me from my really, really ridiculously long list of things I am currently “behind” on. As Mother’s Day approaches, I pass the baton and remind you all to remember just that: We are moms – not maids, not chefs, not professional sock matchers (thank God). Join in on the fun and enjoy your kids. This is the perfect Mother’s Day gift to encourage just that.
