I'm nervous about leaving my babies for 3 days, and about meeting my new baby, and I'm even more nervous about traveling by myself. I know that people do it every day but I don't. I'm going to be a wreck away from my kids. I've never spent a night away from them all! I'm so worried that I'll get all the way down there and something will happen up here and I can't get home. I know it's crazy but I really get a lot of anxiety when there's a lot of distance between me and my family. I'm just glad that four days from today it will be all over and she'll finally be here.
I spent the greater majority of the day doing laundry, getting my house straightened up, and getting the kids' beds all rearranged. I think I posted the whole configuration before on a previous post :o) I was able to get it all to work so I'm really glad that it's all coming together.
I had to do a little more baby proofing because while "P" will chew on things occasionally and stick things down her throat, "A2" will eat everything. I had to make sure that all of "A"s Barbie clothes were all in the bucket where they go and that there wasn't anything that was soft enough for "A2" to swallow. She doesn't really crawl much I guess so that will give us some time to see just what the extent of her eating things is. The living room is all just baby/toddler toys so if she's hanging out there most of the time she'll be ok for a bit. I have a feeling though that the other kids, especially "P", will be very motivating for her to get going with her crawling.
Cross your fingers for a smooth trip :o)
