So the other day, I was talking to my friend Tarry on the phone about how I am waiting for my water to break. The girls were in the room with me and, no doubt, overheard the whole conversation. A few minutes later, Emily kept trying to tell me something. I have been trying to teach her not to interrupt me when I am on the phone unless it is an emergency (aka BLOOD) so I kept shhhing her. She finally went over to Brittany and I overheard "I threw a quarter in the potty." THAT got my attention. I asked her to come over and tell me what she did. She said "I threw a quarter in the potty to try to break your water so you can have Ethan today." Up until this point, apparently "my water" was the toilet to her!!! I tried to tell her, very sweetly, thank you, but that wouldn't work but she broke down in tears. I had to hang up with Tarry and love on my sweet little misguided girl.
As a side note, I did take her to a couple of internet pages and show her the bag of waters that Ethan was surrounded in. She understands a lot better now! LOL
Speaking of breaking my water.... My hubby asked me the funniest thing the other day. He said, "are you SURE you can't have the baby without your water breaking first?" (it was the night he was worried Ethan would just end up in bed with us)
Apparently my family needs some good old fashioned lessons on baby birthing around here! (HEATHER!!! WHERE ARE YOU??? LOL)
