Mission of the Month: April 2013- Preparing for Baby {Accomplishments}

MamasMissionI participated with Mama Jenn’s: Mama’s Mission of the Month for the 1st time last month. I wasn’t sure how it would all turn out, but I think I fared pretty well. I got a lot of things done. Some I had even forgotten to add to this list. Of course, here we are in May and there are still things on this list which still need to be done.

I am happy to say though I am making progress. I have 13 days to go before baby’s due. No telling when the GRAND ENTRANCE will take place, but if it was to be today, I am ready. All the rest will get done in time. I have to keep the faith and know that it will all work out for the good.

So here it is, April’s Mission of the Month progress. I will do a may list hopefully by the end of the weekend.
