What’s left?


I think I have officially done everything that I could possibly do to prepare. Last night I even opened the two-pack of pacifiers and boiled them. To give you a point of reference, this was more than likely completely unnecessary. Both of my other babies refused pacifiers of any type and I have no reason to expect this one to be any different. But we’re ready to go, just in case. The swing is also set up, the bed’s been set up for over a week, all the clothes, burp cloths and blankets are washed and put away. The pocket in my nursing pillow has the necessary supplies in it. The diaper bag is packed with the necessities for our first outing. I dug through the boxes of still-unpacked knicknacks in my closet and found my statue of Heket, the Egyptian goddess of childbirth, who accompanied me to the hospital and hung out on my i.v. stand the previous two times. I am DONE getting ready. I can’t think of another thing I could possibly do.
Any time now, kid.


About msmaryb

I'm a native Californian who lives in Oklahoma. I'm a full-time student, pursuing a Bachelors in Anthropology, following which I hope to attain a Masters in Archaeology. I have three kids, one husband, no pets, and a lot of friends - most of whom live inside my computer. I love to read, write, watch tv (shut up, we can't all be brain surgeons), shop, and travel. I'm trying to set foot in all 50 states before I die. I have 38, so far. I love the Beatles and Maroon 5, and if you think those two things are incongruous, well, they are. But that's me. When I love something, I love it 100%. I don't do anything halfway. I want to know everything there is to know, so I'm trying to cram as much into my brain as I can in the short amount of time I'm allotted in this dimension.
