To Do List

I have to say I was a little proud to see Emma writing a To Do List. Granted, as a 5th grader, her list isn’t too long but she covered the things that are most important to her.

My mom is famous for her post-it note To Do system. She puts a post-its all over one of her kitchen cupboards as a visual reminder of all the things that need to get done.

I love reading To Do lists – they reveal so much. Here’s Emma’s…

First To Do List

What can be gleaned from her list?

  • Friends are important to her. Emma is a care-taker.
  • Emma likes to spend time with her Mom (aw)
  • Emma loves all forms of shopping – even grocery shopping.
  • Emma enjoys her snowdrifts at Caribou.
  • Emma is great at Latin because she studies it every day. It really doesn’t need to be on her list, but it shows that she keeps it a top priority even though it’s already a habit.

What I love most about Emma’s list, is that she is really focusing on her needs. As Giuliana Rancic said, “We have to start putting ourselves on the to-do list.”
