When Baby Makes the Schedule

Let me tell you there are times when it is very hard to work for a church, one of those times are when you are pregnant and the baby has not been born on the exact day the doctors say you are due. Now suddenly everyone looks at you mystified and demands. "Where's the baby." Like I somehow have a say in the matter and I am intentionally delaying the baby. As if we somehow stepped into some twilight zone where all babies are born exactly when they are due and I am somehow messing with the system. I am so glad that everyone is excited for baby, I am excited too, but baby will come when she wants, and I am just fine with that.

Amen, sister! I was home from work for a week and a half before Elise was born, and everyone and their mothers called me to see if Baby had arrived. I stopped answering the phone. Even close relatives - like my mother - called. Why? Just in case I had had the baby and somehow forgotten to tell her? It was maddening.

Dearest Katie,

I'm are going to be the perfect Mommy, starting with when the baby arrives!
"....I am just fine with that", stay in that zone ( for the next 25 years!!) - you'll have the most happy and content children!

I'll be here, waiting for the News!
