11 Days

Almost down to single digits, y’all. I am happy to have arrived in that place where labor is a welcome experience, just so I can get a little bit of my body back. I’m ready to haul this little guy around on the outside rather than nestling him up under my lungs. And, of course, I’m ready to meet him. He’s more rambunctious than Alden was and I’m so curious to know if that will translate.

My mom has arrived, and not a moment too soon. Alden gave us five nights in a row of 3am fit throwing and I was starting to hope for the sweet release of death. Yesterday she hustled him off to the mall playground and engaged in a 3.5-hour forced fun session that finally ended when he laid on the floor and sighed, “Go home please.” Finally, he slept through the night. There never was a more grateful mommy.

I’ve started looking at every pesky thing on my work calendar and thinking, “Huh, maybe I’ll go into labor and I won’t have to attend that meeting.”

So, yeah, it’s all about the waiting now. I’m also pretty tickled with the timing, as maternity leave will coincide with all the new fall shows. I shall nurse to the rhythm of Dancing With the Stars. Anything else I shouldn’t miss?

  3. I’m looking forward to FlashForward, but I like incomprehensible vaguely scifi shows like Lost. ๐Ÿ™‚

    • I am too. For some reason I can’t get it to come up on Tivo. Do you know when it starts?

      • Thursday the 24th. I was able to get it programmed on mine a couple of days ago. When did your Tivo last pull programming information from the servers? (Sometimes it loses network connection because…things are out of alignment or whatever.)

  5. This would not be a good time to mention I was two weeks late, then?

  7. I love Glee, even though it’s going to cost me a fortune on mp3s.

  9. You’re a terrible person.
    I will commit my first tough-love act if necessary, and will have him evicted long before he hits 42 weeks.

  11. Probably shouldn’t mention I was nearly 11 pounds, either…
    Seriously, best wishes for no excitement and what used to be known as a good confinement!
