Big project organising - the babies

Whoever thought you just fall pregnant, have a lovely glow and a bump to show off and 9 months later you have babies is sadly mistaken.

that would be me, by the way

Having babies involves serious project management and LOADS of decisions.

  • which pram?
  • which car seats?
  • do we want one cot or two?
  • who will deliver them?
  • at which hospital?
  • what about classes to show us what to do?
  • what do we buy?
  • can you be a minimalist
  • how do you sort out the babies' room?
  • etc
  • etc
The list seriously goes on and on and I've been threatening to do a master to-do list although it felt a bit...I don't know... cold when you think these are BABIES.

Nevertheless, I realised something had to be done because people would ask me things and I'd say "I don't know" or "haven't thought about it yet", which gets old really quickly.

So I caved and used one of my master to-do lists in the Organising Success Pack

And do you know what? It's not as bad as I thought.

There were only 16 items on there.

Which reinforces what I always tell my clients - write it down; it's usually much worse in your head than on paper :)

Do you use master to-do lists? How do you keep tasks on big projects organised in your mind?

Make your list! When there are two babies, your need to be organized is even greater, and you'll be glad you did.

I was always irritated when people I'd meet would say "I'm glad it's you and not me." After 20 years with my twins, I would say to them, "I'm glad, too!"

Best wishes.
