Babies are the most beautiful sight in the world. Yet everyone who has turned parents knows that with their added responsibilities there are some things that seem like a dream. So here is a bucket list of things you must do before stepping into parenthood.
Have A Career
Though there are many women who manage to juggle between a successful job and child well, it is better to have fulfilled some of your ambition before taking a break to enjoy motherhood.
A child means responsibilities- emotional, physical and financial. It is better that you get the fun quotient flushed out of your system before settling down to do the serious stuff.
Once you start planning for a child, chances are that your savings will far exceed your expenditure which means that you might be cutting corners or forgoing the things that you find “impractical”. So before you plan, splurge!
If there is one thing that is really difficult with kids it is travelling. Go places and see the world before you settle down.
You will never be able to have wild night outs (if you are responsible parents).
Settling down also means that your risk appetite will reduce. While you are young and unfettered with responsibilities take chances in life.
Own A Home
Once you have children you will need to make sure that you are able to provide for all their needs and requirements. So be prepared and own a home at least.
Having a kid can often mean putting your social life and love life on hold. So before you do that, be sexy!
One – On – One Time
Once you have a kid you will not be able to give each other enough time. So before you plan a baby, plan romantic getaways and outings.
With no responsibilities tying you down, there is no reason that you cannot make spontaneous decisions.
