Hello there, baby girl! I know it’s got to be tight in there because you’re doing a lot of stretching these days and there’s just no place to go but out. And, speaking of “out”, you are now 5 days past your due date. While I realize you are technically not LATE until we get to 42 weeks, I kindly request that you consider coming before then.
You see, there’s this thing called a maternity leave. In our country I only get 12 weeks to meet you before I must go back to work. Yes, I know 12 weeks is not enough to adjust to being a family but it’s all we’ve got. We’re working to change the laws to get longer (and paid) maternity leaves but for now I only get 12 weeks. And, you see, I’ve already burned through a week and a half of leave and you haven’t arrived. I don’t know if you can do math yet, but that means we only get 10 weeks together. I’m not complaining. I really needed the last week and a half to get ready to meet you. But now I’m ready.
So come on, baby girl! It’s not too scary out here now that we have new President and all. Your daddy and the doggies can’t wait to meet you.
