8 days. Just over a week. One week and a day. Two weeks minus 6 days. That’s how much time is left before Ali comes and changes our lives forever (again).
Are we ready for this? As much as I’d like to tell myself that of course we can’t possibly be ready to have two kids already, I can’t help but think that we’ll be just fine. Now don’t get me wrong, I’m not delusional enough to think that it’ll be easy; because it certainly won’t be. I’m just confident that Meg and I can handle just about anything that comes our way. I mean, in the past year and a half alone we’ve done pretty much all the big stuff a couple can do, and while it has certainly been rough (admittedly even rougher on Megan), we are still hanging in there. We also have the huge benefit of having very loving and helpful family members and friends to come and help out with the kids during Megan’s recovery. So that’s a huge plus (thanks everyone). Just about the only thing we need to do is get Xavier healthy before she gets here. Scratch that, forgot about all the things we still need to buy. A double stroller being the big one, but also another baby monitor and who knows what else.
So Ali, 8 more days; we’ll be ready for you… I think.
