I hacked all of these from Mark and Angel Hack Life’s List of 70 Things To Do Before Having Children, because a) I love them and their blog, and b) it included several things I have already accomplished, so I felt a little better about my life by the end of it and was also excited for all the things that are hopefully still to come! I edited a lot of them, though, because the original is very “with your partner” based and has one too many suggestions to “make love all day” for my taste. Vomit.
