New way of looking at things

I've decided to try and look at this a new way and see if it helps out. I have decided to look at it as "there is ONLY one year left" before our son arrives. We ONLY have 12 months or so to get everything done around here that is needed. We ONLY have 12 months or so of hardly any responsibilities, we ONLY have 12 months or so to do what we want when we want to do it. We ONLY have 12 months or so to enjoy our time alone together before our whole life changes and our priorities change (for the best of course) so I will try this way of thinking and see where it leads me...I'll keep you all posted.

Thanks again for the support.

Good perspective and one that I definitely need to apply to my life.

That's exactly how I am trying to see it too!!!! I'll let you know how that works out for me if you let me know how it works out for you!

That sounds like a great attitude Natalie! I sure hope it helps you get through the wait. Like I said on facebook, you are going to be an amazing mom and this wait will all be worth it. I am going away this week (San Francisco), if you want to chat I'll try to call you Tuesday (around lunch, my time?)or sometime next week. Lots of love!

That's a good way to look at it. One thing I miss about not having a child is being spontaneous. Now we can't just decide to go out to the movies because we need to plan for a babysitter. etc.
We still are able to do somethings spur of the moment as long as the diaper bag is packed, there are snacks and a baba in there, and it's not too close to nap time!

Enjoy your lasts.
