I am just under 38 weeks pregnant and I wanted my daughter to have one last day to have mommy all to herself. I asked her what she wanted to do for her day, and the first thing that she thought of was to go and get her nails done.
I also bought her a hopscotch mat, that she has yet to stop playing with.
Finally, I asked her if she wanted to go apple picking. She has been looking forward to this because then she knew that the baby is going to arrive any minute. (Because I told her that we could go before the baby came.) However, when we arrived at the orchard there were no apples to be picked, making a not so happy Ella. However we bought some, and then she noticed the tractor, and the dogs that she could play with. That didn’t stop her from looking all over the orchard to find the one tree with apples on it. She didn’t but she informed me that next year there will be apples for her to pick.
All in all it was a very good day, and Ella won’t forget it. Or at least she won’t until the baby comes.
And no one knows when that will be.
