Flavour Of The Day With Noora

Welcome Home Baby!

My delivery date has been scheduled to take place within the next two days. And although I knew that this day was coming, I somehow managed to busy myself with everything except the baby herself.

I completed the outdoor area of our house, completed everything that needed repair and finished any errands that I might need to do in the next 3 months.

Then, it hit me! The baby is coming in 2 days and I still didn't prepare any of her personal stuff. So yesterday, I arranged the crib, the portable cot, the car seat, and washed all her laundry. All the while, I had this nagging thought hovering over me: how is Yousef going to manage for 2 days without mama? He has never been away from me for more than 6 hours at the most. And then I realised that from now on, I will not be "only his".

It's so strange to think that I will have another baby that I will have to care for with the same dedication, someone who depends on me just as much as Yousef does. Just imagining it is making me and everyone who knows how clingy Yousef is laugh.

Any thoughts on juggling two babies?

It had to happen sometime...God help us all!
