Summer Wish List: A Jewish Mama Meme

So I was recently tagged by Amy, over at HomeShuling, to participate in a summer to-do list. Though I must admit that it contains experiences that are so far beyond my parenting skills as this point in time that I can’t imagine getting my family to participate, I love and admire her list.

We just aren’t there (yet) as a family. Maybe next summer???

We have a different must-do list this year. With The Big Move just three weeks from now, there are things that must be done before we leave.

  1. Walk along the beach
  2. Well-kid check-ups
  3. Prep kids’ backpacks for the plane
  4. Break down and order prescription sunglasses
  5. Make a tea date for Poppyseed and Tante B
  6. Forward mail from our temporary address to our permanent address
  7. Eat at Wilma’s Patio
  8. Hair appointments for the kidlets
  9. Spa day for me (hey, I’ve got a gift card to use!)
  10. Write post for Smartly
  11. Write post for Modern Jewish Mom
  12. Write post for Jewcier
  13. Roll down the hill in Central Park (HB) with the kids
  14. Spend time with SuperMom and her fam
  15. Finish training staff on Facebook
  16. Take a tour of old haunts
  17. Bid farewell to BubbeGiraffe and ZaydeGiraffe
  18. Say goodbye to our little home

Not nearly ambitious as some other lists I’ve seen. But if we are able to cross off each of these items in the next three weeks, our leavetaking will be just a little sweeter.

    seriously, it’s not about parenting skills – some things are just easier when you live in a town of 30,000 in new england. i couldn’t do half of what you do.
