The Hospital List for Delivery

What is the most important list you have ever made? For me, it is not the list we made when we were moving houses, not the list I made at my wedding, not a list made before traveling either. It was and still is my hospital list for when I was delivering my first child. I made such an extensive list that even I laughed at it later. But at least we can safely say that there wasn’t much that I missed.

I wanted to be ready and pretty for my baby. So I thought of everything. Makeup? Check. Blow dryer? Check. Did I look pretty though? Let’s not go there, I had no idea what becoming a mother for the first time would be like, and in all honesty, how I looked didn’t even cross my mind after birth. But it should have. I mean, why not? For my second child, I took my makeup all over again. But again, between choosing sleep and makeup, I chose to sleep and I’m not regretting that at all haha. I did put on some lipstick though so that’s cool right?

I’m sharing this list on the condition that no one will laugh. Okay, only a little, please. The list is in no particular order, so no, I don’t prioritize makeup over deodorant =p Also, I assumed, that the hospital will provide me with nothing. Hope this helps!
