As if being pregnant and totally exhausted already wasn’t enough, I know after I have this baby there’s not going to be rest in sight for the first few days. In my dream world, I’ll go and have the baby Wednesday morning and be heading home from the hospital on Saturday morning to spend some time with my other two kiddos. My oldest is on spring break for the week and Easter’s the following Sunday so I won’t have a ton of time for rest right away. The boys want to go to a local pumpkin patch for their Easter egg hunt and have their annual egg hunt at our house. I’m hoping to pull everything off and keep it as “normal” as possible for them. On top of all that, hubby’s mom is planning on coming and staying through Easter to see the new baby too. I also want to try and do newborn pictures with the baby (it never occurred to me the first time around and the second time, we missed that window of time because of his stay in the NICU) as well as take the little one to meet the Easter Bunny for the first time.
Believe it or not, I’ve already got a working schedule for those few days through Easter along with plenty of lists about what needs to be made in advance, what’s for Easter dinner, groceries to stock up on and other things. No I haven’t totally lost my mind (ok maybe I have…), but I have to have a plan and get things figured out hence my planning and list making already. Hubby will have some time off work so hopefully he’ll help me make sure everything gets pulled off without a hitch.
Now the following Monday morning when everyone’s back at work and school, you better believe Mommy and the two little ones will spend most of our day on the couch watching Disney Junior and doing as little as possible! We’ve got a couple of trips coming up for Memorial Day and when school gets out in June as well as our company’s summer picnic in June then my oldest son’s birthday party in July so the craziness won’t really stop any time soon…
Did you get any rest when you brought your little one home?
