Today my sweet superwoman is officially 34 weeks. What that means is in the next two weeks, or so, we will have 2 babies join this family…..OMG, this can’t be coming that fast. We are definitely getting a little panicked at this point in time. It just doesn’t seem right that we are that close, and I don’t feel ready, logistically, for these boys. I have found, however, that life is similar to a game of hide and seek, ready or not hear “they” come!
It is now time for the Dad Checklist of, To Dos and Fix These and Put Together This:
Cribs: Check, Double Stroller: check, 4 million diapers: working on it, 2 wipe warmers: really unnecessary, Car Seats: bought, but not installed, etc, etc, etc, etc
Basically the prep for this is immense and immensely expensive since its all TIMES TWO! I am really not sure how any of us survived life as an infant without wipe warmers, or bouncy seats, or spy camera baby monitors, the list is long. Why do we think we actually NEED all this stuff for our babies? Well, need it or not we got it all and then some. I personally think John Lennon said it best for these boys, “all you need is love”. Isn’t that what it all boils down too anyway?
As we get closer to the end of this journey I still almost daily recall the day we decided to take this journey. We were on vacation at possibly one of the best places we have ever visited, Capella Pedregal. It is one of the most tranquil spots on the earth that I have been. We were laying on the bed one morning, doors open with the Pacific crashing in the background, and she looks at me and says, “Lets have one more”. Of course I took a big gulp and said “lets do it”. Little did I know in 2 weeks that dream will come to reality, except we will be getting TWO, not just one more. And, honestly, I couldn’t be happier then I will be when those angels gasp their first breath. I always dreamed of a big family, but never in my wildest dreams did I think this would be my life. Job of my dreams, girl of my dreams, and a life I would have never imagined could come true with the past I have been through. Carpe diem……
