With just 4 months left to go, I am often asked: OMG, are you ready??
The answer: Heck No!!!
No, I am not ready. Not one bit ready. While I know how to change a diaper, prepare a bottle and burp a baby, I don’t know the first thing about raising one. But let’s be honest, who does??? So while I don’t feel ready, I absolutely am ready. I am terrified, but ready.
For me, being able to get pregnant- and God willing carry to term!- is a great honor and privilege. Anyone can make a child, but not everyone can parent. My only hope is that I do a well enough job, where the adults of tomorrow will look at my child and be happy that they know him/her. I hope that this person that I am about to mold and shape, turns out to be one of those amazing memorable people that make you feel good when they walk into a room.
So while I am in no rush for this peanut to arrive, I am nervously excited for our first meeting!!
