This baby doesn’t have a name yet, but he does have a birthday: January 21. People of a certain age look at us with some skepticism when we tell them that the induction has been scheduled and that will be the day, but after this many babies, I’m pretty confident that he will not be early, nor will the induction fail. That will be the day. Go ahead and pre-order the flower arrangements.
I have developed kind of a waddle.
I seem to be “nesting”, and have miraculously found the energy to tackle a couple of annoying projects, such as cleaning out the (many) cabinets and drawers in my laundry room.
My kids’ new “checklists” aren’t a perfect solution, but are basically working. Turns out if you really ask them EVERY SINGLE TIME whether they have put their clothes in the hamper, their toothbrush in the drawer, or their bowl in the sink, they start to get the hang of it.
