And you thought YOU were busy! Check out my seven-year-old’s TO DO List.

Hayden brought these Post-its home from school the other day. I asked if the teacher assigned them the job of making a list. He said, “No, a few of us just wanted to make them.” I love how he put the heading at the top of each page–with an exclamation point! Please read til the end–he saved the best for last:)

  1. Hysterical! Now I know what is missing in my life…armpit farts!!! Also, I loved your posts last week about the harrowing trip to Sunrise. Even though I knew Hayden was ok after seeing him at soccer it was still really frightening – ugh! Love you – MP

  2. I love this post. Thanks for sharing it.
    I like how ‘play Lego’ and ‘have fun at Lego’ are 2 separate entries. Yes, doing an action is not sufficient. One must enjoy it too. 🙂


  3. I don’t know what it is about making lists that is just so awesome, especially when it is our own kiddos that do it. Thanks for sharing his list. To cute.


  4. A fantastic list that has me still giggling. Looks like I have been doing it wrong all these years. But this shall be remedied and I will be practicing my armpit farts to impress my sister when she comes over.
