As I sit here writing this, there is
only less than ONE WEEK until I find out the sex of Baby #3.
How do people wait until birth to find out?! I could never. I’m barely able to wait until September 19th at 8:00 A.M. (Yes, I took the first available appointment of the day!)
Confession: on Thursday, I called to try to reschedule my ultrasound to an earlier date. I lied and told the lady that I couldn’t get child care for my son on my original appointment date.
I think she was on to me, though…she said I could only reschedule for a date that was later than my original appointment. No thanks, lady!
At least by the time you are reading this it is already Monday and now there are only four more days to wait. That’s not so bad.
I’m trying to plan something special for each day this week to distract myself.
Today I am taking the kids apple picking with my mother-in-law. (My husband has started renovating our kitchen so it’s best to just stay out of his way. More on the kitchen project this week.)
Monday– maybe we will make an apple pie with the apples we picked? Lame, I know.
Tuesday– my daughter has her first dance class (despite protests from my husband). Sorry, but this just feels like a decision where moms carry more weight! He will just have to deal with it.
Wednesday– I want to get the fall decorations down from the attic and set them up. That always puts me in a good mood!
Thursday– I’ll take the kids to the library. We haven’t been in awhile.
Friday– ULTRASOUND DAY!!
Usually I like to drive straight from the ultrasound to Babies ‘R Us to buy a few cute outfits once I know the gender, but I have a blogger event at Discovery Museum right after my appointment, so the shopping excursion will have to wait until the weekend.
Ahh! I’m so excited! Can’t wait to share the news with everyone!
And no, I won’t be having a gender reveal party or making people wait to tell them. Once I know, then EVERYONE will know…via text, via Facebook, via skywriters if I must!
