Countdown to kid #2

Uploaded: May 31, 2014

What should we do before baby #2 arrives? We have most of the logistics figured out (childcare, hospital, doctor, etc). Now, my family is brainstorming fun activities that are easiest with only a toddler in tow.

Last week we went to see the US National Soccer Team play in San Francisco. My husband carried our son on the hike from our car to the stadium. And we were thrilled to be able to enjoy the game as our son watched the blimp overhead, energetic crowd, running players, and bright lights.

We are also planning a casual park potluck with our friends. Over 15 moms in the group are pregnant (or with newborns). And that sounded like the perfect excuse to celebrate.

And finally, I am taking advantage of our son's naps. Rather than clean the house or make dinner, I spend the majority of his naps off my feet (taking a nap myself, reading a magazine, etc). I've heard it is possible for two kids to nap at the same time, but not an easy feat to accomplish.

What do you think we should we do before baby #2 arrives?
