DH and I live a minimum of a 14 hour drive from any family, and only a few of our friends have or really knows how to care for little kids. One of our closest friends has no kids, but knows DD really well and has recently learned how to pick her up fom day care, use the car seat, do the basics of bedtime, etc in order to be "on call" for us in case new baby comes before my parents do at the end of next week (38 weeks). (DD was born at 37 wks, 6 days).
Well, tonight, while talking with other friends we come to find out our "on call" friend is leaving town this Friday morning to return Monday night and she hasn't told us (I'll be 37 weeks on Friday)!! And I talked to her earlier today! Clearly, she doesn't get it. Now, I'm scrambling to find back-up because the last thing I need to be dealing with during labor is figuring out who can care for DD. Hopefully, no baby this early, but it's possible.
