Hank: I’m doing my hair, mama.
Hank: (bathroom door opening) I’m done, but can you help me with my shoes? They have knots.
Me: Sure, honey.
Hank: When is Molly coming? You said after my birthday and it is officially after my birthday.
Me: Truth. Molly will most probably be born the last week of November. And it is October… so a few more months.
Hank: That is soon.
Me: Yup. She needs a bit more time to incubate.
Hank: I hope she comes while I am at school.
Me: That would be very convenient.
Hank: I don’t want her to come at night.
Me: Listen to me, Hank. If Molly comes at night I will let you sleep and you can stay with your Papa and I will go have her with the Nurses at the hospital and then you can come and meet her in the morning. There is nothing to be nervous about.
Hank: But I don’t want you to be alone.
Me: I won’t be alone. I am going to make so many friends at the hospital.
Hank: That is true.
Me: Here are your shoes. Any questions?
Hank: I guess no. But I will think while I am at school.
Me: Would it help if we took a walk to the hospital tomorrow so you can see where I will be. You will be able to see me from your bedroom window. Perks of living across the street from the hospital, you know. It is not all sirens and ambulances.
Hank: That is exactly what I need, yes please. And while you are in the hospital you can take a flash light and shine it to my window so I can see you!
Hank: And we can think of a code.
Hank: Now I am excited.
Me: Me, too.
