whose water breaks on the midnight eve of their due date? who? i mean seriously.
we are waiting now, at home, while S moves through early labor. contractions are every 8-10 minutes, sometimes in clusters. fairly painful.
little Smarty has been so sweet…rubbing S’s legs, talking about the baby, asking to hold her. he’s excited to go to the hospital and has been pretending to be a baby in my tummy (along with his lovie, a kangaroo, who is the little baby).
Smarty is out gardening with S. so fucking cute.
and WTF decided to come! her comment on my earlier post made me cry for some reason. i’m just excited, and trying to enjoy this…you know something going right, something happy, something so abundant and lovely that maybe my pessimism can’t touch it.
