Before January was born, I prepared in all the usual ways. I cleaned everything in our house from top to bottom, we tackled projects that needed finishing, & I made tons of freezer meals so we wouldn’t have to think about cooking or a lot of grocery shopping. A few weeks before she arrived, I came up with the brilliant idea of creating a “quiet box” filled with activities for Ruby to do, either on her own or sitting next to John or myself. When John had time off of work, we really didn’t need these, but when I was on my own (especially the first week!) & wasn’t really able to be up walking around, these little projects saved us!
