I've been having such a hard time with the holidays and then tomorrow is Eli's original EDD and I have no idea how I am going to handle it. It seems like if I am around people, then I do ok. But, if I am by myself (or just with my daughter) I have a much harder time. I'll be around people for the first half of the day but then after that I am sure I am going to be doing a lot of crying. I hate this.

(((hugs))) Maybe go to a restuarant with a play area and let your daughter run around there for a while? You won't be alone that way.

For me the actual day isn't as hard as the day of for some reason. Take any time you need for yourself, and we're here when you need us.

Thanks to babydoll213 for the siggy! My kids' blog Cora's blog

to you.

Katrina's EDD was Dec. 10, 2008 and I found it to be extremely tough. When the day actually came it wasn't as bad as I had anticipated though. It was the months and weeks and then days leading up to it. I just couldn't believe that the time had come that she should have been coming home with us.

We did a big lunch with both Jon and my immediate family and then went to visit her at her grave. It was a day just for Katrina.

Puts such a damper on the holiday season

I agree with Steph, the days leading up to Ethan's EDD were a nightmare but the actual EDD wasn't so bad.

Thank you Vicki for my awesome siggy!!

Roald's EDD was really really hard. It was a very depressing day so we stayed to ourselves and did not go around anyone.
