Sorry sorry sorry! LOL Yes, I am here, and still preggers. I don't post a lot on the weekends, and I'm actually trying to wrap up some things at work, but I did want to pop in here for a few minutes to check in. I'm starting to think that even though I *could* go in to labor at any minute, Rocket has settled in for the long haul. I've had a few contractions here and there, but definitely nothing that makes me suspect that I'm going to go at any second. Today is my last day of work though, so yay for that!
T goes to all day pre-school 3 days a week, so I will keep him in that this week. Next week and the week after are their Spring Break, so M, W, and F he will be home with me unless I'm in the hospital. Note to self: think of some things to do to keep him occupied next week!!!!
We have to pay for daycare whether he goes or not (or else lose our spot, which we do NOT want to do) so I figure that I may take T to daycare at least part time this week and next. Tomorrow morning we are going to a live play of the Wizard of Oz at 10 am, so I thought I would take him to daycare for a couple of hours after lunch so I can try to get some things done around the house. Wednesday he will be with me in the morning until I drop him off at 9 at school, and then my MIL is going to take him in the afternoon after school so that I can go to my drs appt. Thursday is another day care day, and I haven't decided yet what I'm going to do, and then Friday is school again, so I'll take him in at 9 and pick him up at 3.
Next week is still up in the air, but like I said, it's Spring Break so he will def be home with me on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, unless I'm in labor or in the hospital.
ETA: Oh yeah, maternity leave. Again, he'll be in school 3 days a week for the majority of that, so I will keep him in that. I will probably play the daycare thing by ear since we'll be paying for it - maybe do some mornings home and some afternoons at daycare or something. It will be nice to have him home with me for part of the time, but I know I'm going to be tired and wanting to rest when the baby is napping, and I also think that in a way he might prefer to be at daycare at least part of the time where he has lots of kids to play with, as opposed to stuck at home with a newborn and a bleary eyed me. LOL So we will play the daycare days by ear for the most part I think.

Excited to hear you are so close Alissa! not much longer and Rocket will be here. I know you must be super excited! Keeping you in my prayers
We are thinking pretty much the same for daycare and stuff. For the little kids the routine and their friends are big parts of their lives. My daughter loves school(daycare) and doesn't understand when she has to be home lol. I figure April she will go everyday and maybe some of may I will take days with her depending on weather and stuff.
