|the mummy bucket list|
Evening was feeling quite obliging, so I am making this photo my official logo of the mummy bucket list (you can use your own kid-in-a-bucket of course). I reserve the right to change it but as you can see, she is almost bigger than that bucket and while I could get a larger bucket, at some point she is not going to sit in buckets for me and I don't want a teenager who hates me because all of her childhood photos involve a bucket of some sort. Or one with a terrible phobia of buckets (pailophobia??).
The mummy bucket list items can, and possibly should, be ridiculously difficult to achieve (because then our imaginations will find some way to make it happen) or as simple as colouring together. It's up to the mummy and what that mummy wishes.
So here goes...the inaugural item of the mummy bucket list is:
1. Make up a story together, telling each other pieces before bedtime and recording our voices with some sort of device. Then, when she is fast asleep, I will set about transcribing the story so that when we are finished, we can send our story to a one-off publisher like createspace and have our own professional looking copies to keep forever and cherish/be embarrassed about. With an extra one, in case she burns hers when she's a teenager because it is so terribly uncool to write a book with one's mummy.
I plan on making the mummy bucket list an ongoing theme, and again, please share your ideas, thoughts, use my idea on your own blog (feel free to stop by and share the link), and have fun!!
