...and trying to bargain with a baby in my tummy .
If she is born before 10am tomorrow, I will be home for Christmas, but if I don't go into labor soon, she needs to stay put until Christmas Day--in the evening.
My family is visiting for Christmas. I told my grandmother that if I'm in the hospital Christmas morning, I would like t hem to wait and not celebrate Christmas until I get home. I don't want to miss the look on C's face when he comes downstairs and sees all the presents under the tree. Nana acted like I was being selfish, and commented that it woud kill her and devastate her little grandson. I explained that he is 4, and he does not know exactly when Christmas is. If we wait until the 26th and tell him that its Christmas Day, he will have no clue that we changed the day. She sighed and said we'll cross that bridge when we get to it....
I told DH that if it looks like we are going to miss Christmas morning, he has to come home and 'steal' all the Santa gifts so we can at least see Munchkin open some of his presents. Am I being a selfish grinch-y momma?
Please say a quick prayer that baby girl doesn't keep us in the hospital Christmas morning, so I don't have to deal with drama.
Thank you for listening, ladies. I was up half the night worrying over this.
