1-Have a C-Section
2-Finish the remaining 4 hours of petocin dosing, if she doesn't come, come back on Sunday (3 days later) and try again.
Option 3-Pick a new plan...cuz I ain't having a C-Section and I ain't leaving without a baby!!
Roughly a decade later....she presents her tiny 6lb. 12oz. little body to us and I couldn't have cried harder.
Matt and I made fools of ourselves trying to be perfect parents. Including the following:
-Rushing a sleeping child to the ER because "she was sleeping too long and would not wake up!!" I kidd you not. We really did. From that point forward.....she never slept again. Until now...and she's still the worst in the world to wake up.
-Buckling her carseat in "backwards/upside down/in the wrong seatbelt" only to be driving back from SLC to Orem and Matt say to me...."hey, check on her". I look in the back seat and her carrier is literally laying on its side. Do you think she woke up?
Okay....this was not the "retarded parents post"...let's talk about her.
-She's amazing. Kind of bossy....but amazing.
-She's selfless. Except to her brother and sister...I'm pretty sure that's allowed. No teacher loves a child more than they do Maddie. She'd give you the shirt off her back.
-She's funny. And when she laughs, she laughs so hard she cries. I love it.
-She can sing. God bless America!!! She got the good talents!!! She really does have a set of pipes, and i'm excited to get her into vocal lessons. Sure wish her Gramma Vicki lived closer...what's the use of having a Gramma who's a vocal coach when you can't take lessons from her? What are the odds???
-She is SUCH a girl....and my mother dared say to me tonight, "What? She's exactly like you were!! Only you were worse!" And then Dad agreed!! Oy Vey!!
-She's my oldest baby. I love her more than life!!! And she's 10. I'm gonna throw up.
Being sung to in the office at school. She was the only one in the entire school with a birthday on the 29th. That's the most amazing thing in the world to me. When you grow up in a family as large as mine, we shared EVERYTHING. I love it that no matter what, you might have to share clothes, a room, a bathroom, a car and possibly a toothbrush (put that in there to see if you actually read this crap!) but never a birthday. It's all yours!!! I made that perfectly clear to the Dr. that delivered T. One day earlier, or one day later...so be it....just NOT the same day as anyone else!!!
Being a girl....The 1st day of 4th grade
At her 10th Birthday party....caught in a web!!
One of my favorite pics of her. This is one of those times she was laughing her little head off. Her smile is contagious!!
