Let's Talk Babies!

baby prep

I feel like I’ve been in prep mode forever. Between getting things ready for Maya’s big day next week, her first day of kindergarten, and getting things ready for Little Miss #3’s arrival and now getting things ready for my in-laws’ visit late next week I feel like I’ve been on the go and in constant preparation mode for months. Sometimes being a planner is annoying.

Finally, I feel like things are ready for Maya’s big first day of school next week and for Little Miss #3’s arrival. Now I just need to finish getting things ready for the in-laws’ visit. One day I’ll be able to sit down again and not worry about making a list of things that still need to be done or writing out a meal plan and accompanying grocery shopping list or deciding which part of my house to deep clean that day….one day. Probably not until I’m forced to by the arrival of baby #3 😉

I’m a planner, I don’t feel comfortable leaving things to chance. I don’t procrastinate and feel incredibly stressed out when things end up getting left to the last minute. I feel most at peace when things are ready well in advance and I don’t feel like I have to rush to get things done. Hence the fact that I’m already working on a meal plan for a visit from my in-laws that won’t start until late next week and figuring out what cleaning I can do now so that I don’t have to do it all in the last 2 days before they get here. Once my fridge is stocked and all the necessary cleaning is complete I will feel much better. The planner in my will breath a sigh of relief and I’ll be glad to be done with this crazy prep mode that taken over my brain the last couple of months.

Of course, I try to work in some time to sit and put my feet up, because my body just doesn’t have the stamina at almost 37 weeks pregnant that my brain wishes it did. I don’t baby girl to arrive earlier than she should because I’m over doing it 😉
