The kids have been asking several times a day how much longer until their little sister arrives... so I finally made a count down for them. (Now they can just go and look at the chalkboard whenever they forget!) I think everyone is ready to meet this little girl.

Except perhaps this little guy who has no clue what's about to hit him... and seems to be going through a rough spot right now. He knows exactly what he wants but doesn't have the words to communicate. Which results in many temper tantrums and one exhausted mama. I do worry about the combination of his fits and a newborn in the house... but I suppose we'll muddle through somehow.

I said I'm ready to meet our little girl, but I'm not ready to leave for the hospital yet... I think we've finally got childcare squared away for the week. But I still have a laundry list of things to do like: pack bags for the entire family, make some frozen meals so I won't have to cook as soon as I return, set up a crib, and visit my doctors a million more times... better get to work!

Hope you're having a great week!
