Before I Procreate

I realize the title of this page, Before I Procreate, may seem a bit strange.  I’m going to attempt to explain… It was spawned out of a conversation with my mom.  One day I was going over all the things I wanted to accomplish and she referred to it as my bucket list.  I stopped and thought about it for a second and realized that I have much, much more I’d like to accomplish before I die.  These were things that I wanted to do before having kids.  Thus, my before I procreate list was born.  Some of them are totally silly, some (according to my husband) are irresponsible, but all are totally me!  As I complete each of these, I’ll make a note with the date next to it.
