Based on latest reports from my sister, Nephew B is really REALLY ready to get here. So instead of a nice slow drive today ending with a pleasant watchalong, I’m gonna shoot for getting within a few hours of their house by the end of the day so I can be on call. Unfortunately, all the way there just seems EXTREMELY unlikely. Unless I get an Auntie adrenaline rush.
I did ask, just to be prepared, what I should tell Nephew A if he wakes up to find his parents gone. Family line is “they are at the hospital where the doctors are helping Baby Brother get out of Mommy’s tummy”. That’s not terrifying, right? To be told by a near stranger who just arrived at your house?
I’m sure it will be fine. I’ll bribe him with food and movies. Which reminds me, this song is good for me while on the road today, AND might be a good “look at the pretty song and forget that both your parents are gone for the first time in your life” distraction!
