4 Things to do before you have a baby

Are you and your new hubby thinking about bringing a baby into the mix? No worries -- your life won't end when you do. But, there are some things you should probably check off of your 'life list' before you do:

  1. Go bungee jumping, zip-lining or whatever crazy, life-risking activity you have on your bucket list. These things are not looked highly upon when you have little ones who basically depend on you to be injure-free and alive. So do them before the baby.
  2. Value your alone time in the bathroom. Seriously. Really appreciate it.
  3. Go on a road trip. To anywhere, together or alone. It doesn't matter; just completely enjoy total silence or blast whatever kid-unfriendly music you want. Only stop when you want or need to, and really enjoy the freedom. Your car will never be the same after you have a child.
  4. Take that career risk. Try for that promotion, change careers or any other risk that's work-related that will feel too precarious once you have dependents. You'll have the rest of your life to worry about stability, your income and shelling out for diapers and college. Make the most of this time by pursuing your passion or determining what you really want to do.
