He's so much like his mother....

I am a list maker. I have to-do lists, grocery lists, lists of things I want to do around the home, lists of paperwork due at work, lists of everything automatic that comes out of my account...lists, lists, lists... Around my house, I have more than one little notebook to write these lists-that's the other thing-I LOVE a pretty notebook!!!But I digress....

Two nights ago when Seamus and I were in bed reading and all of a sudden he rose up and said he had something important to do-well.... I really didn't think much of it-Seamus always has something important to do!! He was taking a little longer than I expected and so I reluctantly got out of my warm and cozy bed to see what this important thing was....

This is what I saw.......
                                



        


I love the use of bullets on the side for his points and the use of the \ (slash) symbol between night\morning. I also love the drawing-the corner is a hockey picture to of course illustrate what game he will be playing on his PlayStation.

I laughed and laughed remembering how many nights I have lept out of bed to write my own to-do list....and then I almost cried thinking once again how grown up he is becoming, how he could do all of this without my help, and how in so many ways in him, I see me......

Me.

    Chantele-I highly recommend the whole blog writing experiment I have begun-it is quite therapeutic and helps with perspective I find...along with a great way to remember all the crazy/amazing moments of mothering....

    I am glad you enjoy...
