Gizmo is due is exactly 2 months from today.
Which on one hand…
2 months! Oh Yay! We’re finally going to meet this little person we created and we finally get to see what they look like and what their personality is like and get to actually know what body part that is instead of just playing the “I think that might have been a foot” game and I don’t have to be pregnant anymore and we finally get to be parents and I. Am. So. EXCITED!
But on the other hand…
2 months?! Oh Shit! We have so much to do… the birthing class hasn’t even started yet and the baby’s room isn’t anywhere near done and we’re actually going to be parents and in charge of an entire other human being and we can’t even make sure that Dexter takes his medication every day not to mention that stupid dog just cost us $80 because of a “skin condition” and how are we going to afford things like that when I’m not working full-time and I. Am. So. TERRIFIED!
I’m guessing this is a normal response.
So since I know a lot of people who read this are parents what do you guys suggest for the final countdown? Anything that absolutely should be on our to-do list? I mean we have a list of the obvious things – set up nursery, wash baby clothes, assemble all of the plastic goods, get changing table ready, buy diapers/nursing tops/wipes, etc… but what else am I missing?
And just so this post isn’t completely about the baby I’m happy to report that the Arrested Development Movie is finally happening. In honor of that – and of our final countdown – how about a magic... I mean illusion... courtesy of GOB?
