Are we ever really ready??

Over the last few days, a lot of people have asked me if I'm ready for Maggie to come. anyone ever ready? The closer that I get the more I realize that I have NO idea how to really be a mom. I'm not even talking about raising Maggie right. I'm just talking about taking care of her physical needs. I guess every new mom feels like this, but some seem to be better than others. Someone said you're just in "survival mode" at the beginning. That doesn't sound very enjoyable, but I'm sure that's where I'll be. Then I start thinking about how huge of a commitment this is. I mean we'll be worrying about Maggie for the REST OF HER LIFE. It actually never ends. Again, not sounding very enjoyable. I have actually been hoping that she doesn't come early, so I actually get spring break off with nothing to do. I figure it will be the last time that I can say that for the next 20 years. :o) But then I start thinking of all the wonderful it will feel to hold she will it's up to us to raise her God has given us this blessing. Then I start thinking that tomorrow wouldn't be too soon to see her. Wow! Talk about pregnancy really messing with your mind!!! So I guess I'm soon as we get through a million things we HAVE to do before she comes. :o)
