so many new mamas! welcome, everyone!
Thanks, to the library I go.
Welcome NAABG12!  
Babysitters Club?  Yes, I laughed pretty hard :) I love this thread.  I'll have a 5yo DD and 2.5yo DS at my homebirth.  I think I'll get a kid kit for my son, and let my daughter take pictures.  Thanks for the suggestions! And for the throwback to my childhood reading habits!
