    We ended up going with 4 days of 9 - 3.

    I couldn't justify the cost of 5 full days, and I am just not ready to give up that much time with her! Plus, neither of us are morning people, and getting...

    I definitely will have her help push. I'm sure she'll want to do that a lot! But she will also want to ride. And I know she won't "need" to, but I guess, as the oldest myself, I just want to be...

    Sit and stand stroller

    Despite the fact that Maiya can walk miles, I KNOW that when the baby is here, if he will sit in a stroller (she refused quite often!), she will also BEG to ride with him. I know this for absolute...
