So many things are on my mind this am. As per my ticker we have 30 days left. This could either be extended or quickly shortened if babe decides to arrive early, as it did for my dear friend Leah.
CONGRATULATIONS ON MADYLYNN LOUISE!! LEAH & KEVIN!! :)
Leah is a dear college friend, we didn't go to school together but rather met @ the Market Basket, our summer job. At the time we met we were young & pretty free spirited. Having fun @ work & even more fun outside of work. I can think of many crazy, spontaneous things that we did. Now She is a wife, a mom of two & a professional in the workplace & I'm a wife, a worker bee too & a soon to be mom as well. Her babe was due next weekend, but decided to arrive 9 days early. They, like us, didn't find out the sex either. Leah is, a Monica in Friends, very anal & a planner down to the last detail, agrees she loved not knowing & wouldn't change it either.
My heart goes out them; a new baby, a three yr. old & a new home of only 2 weeks. Congrats guys I miss you!!
This is going to be a fun filled weekend:
TODAY: Mother's Blessing
TONIGHT: Date w/hubby--dinner & pick out hospital-to-home baby clothes- girl & boy :)
TOMORROW:Church--always a good way to fill up the soul & a work baby shower.
& now my mind goes back to work & my day yesterday. I took care of a babe that was born 2 weeks premature, 35 weeks & most babes are fine at this stage, but somehow, some reason why this babe took a hit either while in utero or during birth & they are doing tests--genetic, diagnostic, lab...everything to figure out why this sweet boy is not able to suck & has poor body tone. All you can do is pray & place your faith of this child's future in God's hand. I take these babies home with me in my heart & as it stands I still can't imagine walking away & not being a part of it. Could I be a person that doesn't work??? I know at this point that I have NO idea how consuming motherhood is, but I do enjoy the work I do. Even on the long/emotional days, I still walk away wondering what will happen & look forward to going back.
So after this weekend--I work the next 3 Saturdays & my last day is June 25th!!
