#3 is almost here – technically he/she is not due to arrive until 11/30 but intuition tells me it may be sooner. The kids are getting pretty anxious and in some ways it is showcased through their uncanny ability to “not hear” Shad and I as well as their knack of mastering the art of “crying/whining” when they are not getting their way.
Shad and I are truly challenged with keeping our patience these days. It’s been a test to say the least. Fortunately, for the most part, when one of us is feeling impatient the other is patient. I would tip my hat to me being more of the former than that of the latter.
The kids have both attended “sibling” classes at the hospital so they can have some insight into what is to come. It’s funny when I think about it Reilly is always going to be the “oldest” no matter how many members of the family come – but we are creating that not so envious position of “middle child” with Kate. She will now become the middle child and will either be the only girl or will have a sister. It’s really an interesting thing to change the whole family dynamic – for better or for worse.
Shad and I are looking forward to the coming weeks to understand how we have done so…
