new parents walking

As we were discussing what to take with us on the plane flight this weekend, I started thinking about the fact that this will be the last weekend away from home as just the two of us for a long time.  Even if we get out sans children for a little while, it will be finding someone to babysit and make sure we can be reached in case of emergency... The needle is a little closer to terrified than it is to excited all of a sudden.

(And as a follow-up to the heads up vs. heads down position Beta currently has, I'm really hoping for heads up, because I would hate to think I've been talking to her butt all this time.)
