Summer is pretty much over. I failed at completing most goals on my 30 Things to Do This Summer list. So time to make another list to fail at, shall we?

50 Things to Do While on Maternity Leave 
(Part one! - The first 25)

1. Write a post solely about poop
2. Decorate a garbage can
3. Make at least 50 handmade greeting cards (the ones made before September 3rd don't count)
4. Get rid of anything and everything that I don't really use
5. Be awesome enough to sell my handmade crap at a crafts fair or flea market
6. Teach a baby to walk before she's a year old!
7. Think long and hard about going back to school
8. Take baby girl out for her first Halloween like Mom did with me
9. Start planning the most awesome 1st birthday party for baby ever
10. Take my grandfather up to stay with us for a few nights after the baby is born

I love decorating for holidays and the baby will know from pictures that you celebrated! I want Halloween pictures!!! I would suggest take a trip to NB x 2 or more, haha! You're off work, just get here and don't worry about anything else :) perhaps for my super fabulous kid friendly Halloween party ;) for trip 1

This is a great list! I wish I could take more than 6 weeks maternity then maybe I could also accomplish a few of these :)

Love the list and love the idea of making one too. I think I might have to do this myself, although I can already imagine that I won't even make a dent. You are so industrious. :)

What a list, you are braver than I. I pretty much sat on my butt and stared at my baby my entire maternity leave...all three of them!
