It's like a kid waiting for Christmas, knowing your due date is just around the corner, knowing you're about to become a mom. Whether it's the first time, or the third time, that same excitement swirls around. Except you know when Santa will arrive. He won't pass you by for a few more days, or surprise you a few days early, which lends to that deep anticipation. Marking those days off the calendar, passing by "due date" you vibrantly wrote on the calendar. It's the first experience of this new world that awaits you- the unexpected your children bring, the excitement, the swirling of emotions, the beginning of new adventures.
