Do you have ‘Princess’ on YOUR todo list? Why not?

On September 7, 2012 by Aimee

My daughters absolutely LOVE writing up todo lists. They make them almost every weekend, detailing what they’re going to be doing each day. Sometimes, their lists are a little too detailed, with information down to the minute of their day. At other times, their lists are simple, made to ‘get the job done’.

My todo list is horrendously long. It has about a hundred things on it. They are all work related, chore related, blech related. You know. Work. Work. Work. Work.

Not like this.

This list was made for a fun day. These were the items they wanted to do (spelling corrected):

  • Princess
  • Bouncey Ball
  • Draw
  • Hide and seek
  • Webkins
  • Television
  • Reading
  • Math Superstars
  • Staring Contest
  • Wimpy Kid Dog Days

Now, the top entry “clean room” was added by me, after being asked to add one thing to the list. It did not get done, but the rest did!

You see, my kids, when they make a list or are given a list … have to finish it. It’s like that last bite of chocolate cake that’s left on the plate. You can’t just leave it. No, no, you can’t just leave it. It has to be eaten. An unfinished list has to be finished!

Don’t you want this list? I mean, mine is nothing client this.Β Nowhere on them do I get to be, play or even dress up as a princess.

Bouncey ball is not an option in my day.

Staring contest … with who? πŸ™ No one for me!

Hide and seek? None!

Why do kids get all the fun?

I think I’m going to start adding ‘princess’ to my list … at least then, I can wear a crown.

How about your kids? Do they create crazy lists that make you want to be a kid again?
