Happy Valentine’s Day! Hope yours is very sweet & filled with all the things & people you love. My littles are at daycare dressed in red & pink. We skipped learned at 6p on the 13th that we’d be doing Valentine’s cards for their classmates {que running to Kmart in the rain with both babies in tow} & chose also to treat their teachers with DD’s Munchkins using Brandy’s teacher appreciation idea.

I’m sharing over on Liberating Working Moms today my love of to-do lists. And why I think I’m a better parent when I toss {some of} them aside.

I thrive on lists. I love making them. I always have. Shopping lists, to-do lists, grocery lists, packing lists, weekly schedule list. I love seeing it on paper {yes, I still hand write my lists}. I love checking off items; it leaves me with a quick feeling of accomplishment.

With the arrival of Zach & Lucy & my return to work, list making has been crucial. Without one of my precious lists, errands get forgotten as does applesauce.

Jump over to LWM to read the rest & I’d love to hear what household chores you can or can’t put off for your kids.

PS~ For the sake of true openness, I will say that I have a two page to-do list & pack list combination on-going for this upcoming week’s work trip. My list broken down to two words: thirty bottles.
