Preparation

Enough with all the posts about Abby’s preparations for Henry.

Enough with the monthly pictures of her belly, Enough with the pictures of Henry’s room. Enough with pictures of all the gifts and showers. Enough.

Lets talk about me and how I’m preparing for Henry.

I have recently had my hair colored and cut for his arrival. I have acquired a new set of hot rollers(because I loved the 80’s!!) and am sure to woo this little bundle with my beautiful, straight brown hair. I’m hoping he falls in love with its texture and style. It is so unlike his mothers that I just know he will be aching to feel it and look at it so often that his parents will have to bring him to see me!!

I have also been plucking my eyebrows. Oh, the pain and agony that causes. But for Henry it is worth it. The last time I got them waxed the girl did a great job and they have been pretty easy to keep up with. I really don’t want Henry to think I have mustaches or caterpillars above my eyes the first time he sees me.

This one has been the toughest one yet. Clothes! What to wear?! I remember hearing that if you wear red when in front of a group it gives a sense of authority and respect. So, I’m thinking no red! HA! I have a couple of new sweaters that are in the running for this special event.

I have one that is belted that is oh so cute, but I don’t know if it is comfy enough to wear for a long day of labor and pain management (Abby’s of course, not mine). I have a black one that is super comfy and they say babies can’t see colors too good at birth. So, this could be the sweater. He could fall in love with me and have to go home with me if I wear this sweater. OK! I’ve just made up my mind. It’s going to be the black sweater!

The last thing is lip stick. I’m in kinda of a slump in that department. So, today I’m going to go out and buy a new lipstick. One that is sure to bring attention to my face (so that he looks at me!) and one that will not iritate Henry’s skin when I kiss his little face over and over and over….

Have I left anything out? Is there something else I need to add to my list of preparations? Help!!!!

Celebrating and decorating with purpose is my favorite thing to do. When I am not filling a tree with ornaments or throwing a birthday party for my golden doodle, I am being mom to a super cool tween son, the wife to a fine blue eyed man and selling real estate. I call northeast Arkansas home and when I am not loving on my people or celebrating in our space, I am using words to express myself here or on my podcast. Be sure to follow me! I am the co-author of a blog called Life with My Sister and have a podcast called Abby As-Is. You can also follow me on Instagram, Facebook, Pinterest and YouTube.
