Two things will be done this weekend: 1) We will organize and go through everything we can donate to the church rummage sale this week. 2) We will wait for the baby. I’ve been waiting for the baby for awhile now, but with every day that passes the waiting intensity increases. Will you or will you not arrive today? Though I know it is likely I will go past-due (after June 3), I keep hoping that I will be an exception to the first time mother rule and baby will show up just a little bit early (I start my 39th week on Monday).
For now, I’m sitting on the couch, compression socks on, feet propped up, and have spent most of this morning reading, internet searching, and kitchen cleaning. It has not been the most productive day, but I’m doing a little bit here and there. Plus, it has been hard to concentrate with the baby on my mind.
Here are this week’s favorite things:
Laura Vanderkam answers a reader question: can I pursue my own interests after having a baby? Thankfully, that answer is an emphatic yes.
I’ve always been fascinated by the catacombs of Paris.
I kind of want to make this cake…with ice cream.
As I prepare for the baby, I really enjoyed this post and its accompanying resources on the one parent rule for a less hectic home.
What are your plans for this weekend?
