We are planning something fun in our January 2010 issue: our to-do lists.
To make it more interesting, we are asking you to mail us one (or some) of your to-do lists by November 1st. Don't re-copy it all nice. We want it in its raw form with all of the things you need to get done (or think you need to get done). Items crossed out and checked are just fine with us!
Our address is: baystateparent
117 Elm Street
Millbury, MA 01527
Attention: To-Do Lists
As our thank you, we'll pick a few of you and send you some prizes. Who doesn't like prizes! Make sure to include your contact information somewhere so that we can call and/or email you.
Aren't you curious to see what other parents like you hope to accomplish in a day? It will be funny to see the simple and mundane next to the ambitious.
And as my wise friend Judy says, at the end of the day, we should not focus on what did not get crossed off on the to-do list but we should make a list before bed about we DID accomplish! We need to pat ourselves on the back more often instead of beating ourselves up and feeling like such failures that we did not get to everything we had hoped. And we need to stop looking around the house as the judgment of what kind of person and mom we are.
If we were at the playground with the kids or volunteering at school, that's why the beds are not made!
Ladies, let's come together and share what our days look like! We hope it will be an
eye-opening, supportive, and fun way of looking at ourselves.
Now add "Mail baystateparent to-do list" to YOUR list.
Take Good Care,
