The Mom's from CiCircle have been so incredible with their advice and suggestions on how to prepare for Monday.
Here's what we're doing to get ready for Monday:
-Heading over to Gymboree to find some shirts that button up. We need to make sure we can dress him after surgery without pulling something over his head. The little one's get all bandaged up and his noggin is going to be swollen.
-Packing a little day bag, for all of us. I'm planning on bringing some extra toys and clothes for the monkey, and also bringing some extra clothes for Chuck and I...just in case.
-Hiding all of our hats in the house. Christian is OBSESSED with any hat he can get his hands on. We definitely don't want him putting anything on his head with his bandages, so they are all going into a bin in the laundry room...for now.
-Heading over to PR at Partners in Chevy Chase to get a hair cut for the little man. I just couldn't bare to think that his first haircut would be by the surgeons. So, our good friend who styles my hair (and Chuck's too) is going to do the ceremonial first cut. Christian doesn't even need a cut, but again...I don't want my memory of his first hair cut to be from this surgery.
-Doing all of our laundry, and just everyday cleaning. I don't know what to expect, so I don't want to have to worry about washing clothes or doing grocery shopping. I just want to be able to focus on Christian. So, it's 80 degrees today, and I'm spending it folding clothes!
-Lots, and lots of praying.
