The Casserole Party

It was a blast. In total, we received 12 casseroles all frozen and ready for consumption once Monkey makes her debut. It is a great party idea, especially for second-time moms. I figured I just had a baby last year, there isn't much I need, but food is always welcome. Now, my cooking after the bambina comes will be cut in half. Yay, for the casserole!

It was also nice yesterday because I got a mini-break from Lexie. Lord, I love that child with all my being, but sometimes a momma needs a vacation. S was kind enough to take the day off of work and watch her. He even got up with her in the morning so I could sleep in. Bliss.

A perk at the party was Alana. She's one of my step-mom's closest friends. She also happens to be a retired L&D nurse and is married to a high-risk pregnancy doctor (his official title has escaped my pregnancy-scattered brain). I got to chat with her at length about my fears of breech births, versions, c-sections, you name it - we covered it. She agrees with my hopes of scheduling a version then induction immediately after. I guess that's standard procedure for her hubby. I feel more confident now in my choice and have a feeling Dr. Not So Nice will agree with me.

So, that sums up my Saturday. Hope all of you are enjoying this fine weekend!

It sounds like you got a lot of great stuff at the casserole party. Can't wait to hear what the doctor has to say on Tuesday.

How great that you have all that food you don't have to make!!! That is going to be a lifesavor once your new little girl is here! That really is a cool idea.

I am glad you got a mommy break, every mom deserves those!

It sounds like you had a great time and the casserole party was a success! I think it is such a great idea and you will probably be even more excited after the baby comes and you dont have to cook as much :-) Keep us in touch with what happens with the doctor!
