So, its December, my 3 year old is now on holiday school until 15th December when he will be home with me until school goes back in January, our nanny is going away for 3 weeks on 10th December and I am going on maternity leave on 10th December and expecting our little bundle sometime in the next 4 weeks.  To top it all off, Paul is working through December.

To say I am slightly freaked out is an understatement.

Hopefully the baby stays where she is until January when our nanny is back.  Hopefully if she does come early it wont be too difficult for Paul to work from home so he can help me with both kids.  Hopefully I will be able to keep my super charged, energetic 3 year old boy happily occupied for 2 weeks without breaking my bank account and without subjecting him to too much TV baby sitting.

I know in my heart of hearts that it will all be fine.  We have an amazing park down the road that Aaron and I can play in, my mom is around the corner and only working part time through December so she can help out if I need her, Paul is able to work from home as he doesn’t need to be in an office all day.

I also know that many many women stay home and manage to raise their children, clean their homes, cook meals and that I am fully capable of doing the same thing.  Im just not used to it and that makes me nervous.

One things for sure though… This December is going to be very interesting!
