A Monday morning to-do list.
Written, unbeknownst to me, by my eight-year-old, Chase.
He had carefully laid out his plans and must-do tasks for the day. They are:
- Wake up (already done and crossed off)
- Eat breakfast
- Do jobs
- Do mathsheets
- Read Chet Gecko #3
- Play with McKay and Hannah?
- Eat lunch
- Specile [special] family outing
- Come home
- Eat dinner
- Read the Little House in the Big Woods?
- Go to sleep
What I love more than just the fact that he's actually written this list himself (which, I'll be honest, does make my heart go all a flutter), is that he put a question mark on playing with his brother and sister, and reading a book before bed.
Because one certainly cannot count on later wanting to do these items.
One must always leave room for changing one's mind.
I think we definitely got the right baby at the hospital. No doubt in my mind.
