As I sit here, half my brain power is being used to obsess about the number/size of bags I am bringing to the hospital.
AOL laptop bag
Purse (which no longer fits in my big green bag)
Medium sized duffle
AOL laptop bag with purse inside
Medium sized duffle (with purse inside)
Is that excessive? This is when the not knowing what to expect eats away at me. I imagine people's reactions to my freaking luggage. I have no clue what normal people bring to the hospital. I've never known we were going in, so I've never had to prepare before.
Yes, I do know that this is called "avoidance" and that I'm "fixating on the bags to distract myself from the anxiety caused by the impending hospitalization". But thanks for checking. ;)
So the goodies list for KayTar includes:
Mr. Potato Head and lots of spare parts
ABC wooden block set
Playdoh (3 colors) and cookie cutters
Little People animals (she isn't much for the people)
Coloring sheets with her favorite characters
Foam stickers, tons of them.
Flashcards, a few different sets
Cars (I figure we can draw roads on the paper and drive 'em around, or make ramps with books and watch glide)
Guess How Much I Love You
Is Your Mama a Llama?
Five Little Monkeys
(I think I'm forgetting one or two)
Photo album of her favorite people
Then the laptop, of which we have joint custody, and a few choice DVDs.
So, preschool room in a bag, really. And evidently, preschool rooms are heavy. Just ask Josh, since he'll be the one carrying it. ;)
Thanks for the thoughts and prayers, I'm sure it will make all the difference for us. To show our appreciation, KayTar will now preform a trick for you all.
She likes to watch TV that way. My little contortionist.
I'm hoping I'll be able to update, at least at night once she is asleep. Be back soon, I hope.
