with probably (hopefully) about three weeks to go i told my farmer we should start thinking about getting our hospital bags together.

being the sensitive sort, he asked why we would need a hospital bag if we weren't going to stay overnight?

that led us down a rabbit hole of...i'm having this baby. he is not having this baby. i'll stay two full days in the hospital if i want to. don't say another word about it. ps. you can go back to the farm if you want.

about five minutes later he said he was sorry and that i could stay in the hospital for as long as i wanted. i think two nights is sufficient simply because we live so far away...and god forbid something should go wrong! it's not a fun thought. anyway...

so i said we should get our bags together. he grabbed a toothbrush, his leatherman, and a granola bar. that's my guy. throw in some shoelaces and he could deliver the baby safely on the way to the hospital himself.

me on the other hand...easy-does-her high-maintenance. it's how i roll. i'll be having a 45 minute tutorial with the nurse showing her how to use our camera. god help her.
