A letter to my soon-to-be-here baby…

Still here… Still pregnant… Probably will be for another two weeks or so (going by the due-date)… Though I’m really ready to write and swallow and eviction notice, cause as far as I’m concerned – it’s about time. But it will be a nice eviction notice. And it will say something along these lines:

My wonderful new kiddo, I think that it is time for you to consider coming out. I’m ready to meet you face to face… Trust me, it’s a lot more fun on the outside. There is more room, more noise, more everything. You’ll like it here. Seriously. We’ll take good care of you. We’ve even got the hospital bag packed already, with nicely sanitized baby clothes for you… And blankets… And tiny-tiny diapers… And everyone on our long extended family list has been notified to expect your appearance at any moment now, and they are all excited, and can’t wait to meet you too…

And I’ve made arrangements with my dad and brother bout how they are going to bring me some of my favourite foods to the hospital… Cause mommy is so ready to eat normally. And walk like a person, and not a penguin. Cause you wouldn’t want a penguin for a mommy, now would you?

I know we won’t be sleeping for a while, and life will be chaotic… I know I will be tired, and hormonal and hysterical now and then… I know that two kids will be no picnic and sometimes I’ll feel like “what the heck did I get myself into?”… Especially when daddy goes back to work…

But I also know it will pass. You will eventually slip into our crazy family schedule. You’ll grow big enough to play with your brother. You’ll have a gorgeous smile for greeting everyone around you. And you will uncover your own unique personality that makes you so special and yet such a perfect fit with the rest of us.

And then one day we will have a family stroll in the park. And it will be a sunny and beautiful day. And you’ll see the ducks and the geese, and maybe even swans… And you’ll be laughing and pointing them out, just like your brother does now… And your brother will teach you what they are called… And your parents will be so proud and happy for both of you. Cause this is all we’ve ever dreamt of…

So come out soon my little angel… I can’t wait to hold you in my arms…

That's a beautiful letter. You actually made me cry a little. That should do the trick - send it to him and he'll be out in no time.

Hee-hee. Now that you have practiced on the first child, you are all ready for the second one.

...just like your brother does now… And your brother will teach you what they are called…. Beautifully written.

That was sweet. I had a little tear.
I hope he or she comes out soon. I know you are ready.

I'm a 29 year old mom of two! A toddler (kiddo one) and a new baby (kiddo junior). I am also the most horrible (as in I barely ever do it) cook that I have met in my life. This blog is a diary of my attempts to feed my hungry growing family

PS: My name is not actually Vasilisa... But I find that honest reporting comes easier when there is a shred of anonymity. (Apparently, posting pics of my sons doesn't count...)

PPS: For those of you wondering where on the planet I am: I'm cosily tacked away in the Torontonian suburbia of the Great White North (Canada).

What is all this?


To music, naturally.


All kinds of books. Haven't figured out how to post links to them yet.
