38 hours to go

My c-section is scheduled for 10:30 AM on Monday morning.

That's like 38 hours away.

I'm making peace with the fact that my long "to do before the baby comes" list is not going to be completed. I hadn't factored in many of the basic requirements such as "make sure that all of the kids fingernails are cut short before bringing a newborn into the house."

Cutting children's fingernails is a long, painful act of penance in my house.

At this rate slow prep rate, I'm going to be lucky to have my hospital bag packed by Monday.


  1. Good luck! Don't worry about that list- you won't care when you're holding your new baby! :-)

  2. No one ever gets it all done... in 24 hours you won't care a bit!

    Praying for you.

  3. I'll be sure to pray for you and hope all goes well with the birth.

    By the way, have you ever tried to cut the kids nails when they are deep in sleep?

    Good Luck!
