Okay, so I've been really worried about what's going to happen with my 3 kids while I'm in the hospital having a baby. My mother flew out for Allison's birth, but she works retail, so the week before Christmas just isn't going to happen.

So we've been discussing option of family and such. Yesterday Matt was skyping his younger sister. Kim currently lives in New Zealand. She's teaching at the university of Wellington, but her contract is up for renewal at the end of the year, and she's not sure if they're going to give it to her or someone else. But if she gets it, she'll have a 5 week break (if she doesn't she'll just be coming home trying to figure out what she's doing). So she and Matt have decided that she'll try to come see us that week. Details need to be ironed out (obviously my induction isn't scheduled yet), but I feel so much better about things! It's nice to have at least a tentative plan.

Woo hoo! Hope it works out!
It took three years to get pregnant with my first and surprisingly I had my second 19 months after him!

I think you are too kind. Kind people give the people around them a hard time. You can't express yourself honestly, because you are worried about hurting other people's feelings, and that makes you miserable.~"Winter Sonata"
