This week, my family is waiting on the arrival of our third child.
He’s two days past the due date: we thought he would come a few days or weeks ago.
Naturally, we planned to be ready before the due date–then had last minute details we forgot to take care of.
Now, all our preparations are made. The carseat, clothes, and crib are all ready. Our projects at work are handed off; our hospital bag is packed.
Unfortunately, it’s not our habit to be remarkable well-prepared for an event, and left ready, calm, and waiting for the big moment to come.
But we’re enjoying the peace of well-prepared; we should try it more often 🙂
