Thoughts on my last day..

So today is (unless something unexpected happens) my last day as a mother of one.. as my husband put it - 'we are going to be parents again'. Such simple words and yet it does make me reflect.. I have tried to make an effort to really enjoy my son and spend some extra time with him this past week as I know that things will be changing greatly in this household again! I am excited for tomorrow and nervous at the same time - like will I remember how to take care of a baby again? Will I be able to breastfeed again? Will my baby be good or cry all the time? will I be able to handle the hormone rush one more time? and so much more - but I know that is all normal.. and I know that things will work out just fine.. it's just one more step into the unknown :)

P.S. Check out Stacey's contest at Fun with the Friesens she is giving away a nursing bracelet from Amy May's Mei Tai's Store. Stacey's got pics and info to enter so check it out.

Seeing as I am just checking this out now - hopefully things are all going well and that your labor is progressing nicely. Good luck today - I will be thinking of you and sending good vibes.

And don't worry, you will be a fabulous mother again this go around. You may even find it a little easier as you have been through it before so will have that much more confidence.
