Crying "where is Mommy?"

I am at my friends house who I have never been at before. We are good friends, but not super close. I am here cus she went into labor in the middle of the night. Her MIL was supposed to watch the kids but when she called her she discovered she was sick with the stomach flu.

Soooo....... I am now sitting at my friends house with my 3 yr old sleeping in her pack n play and 2 kids ages 2 and 3 sleeping in their room who barely know me and have no idea I am here. Their mom did not tell them cus she was not in labor when they went to bed. But, she woke at 11:00 with contractions 5 min. apart, then there where 2 mins apart and some one on top of each other by the time I got here.

Please pray for me cus I am gonna have an interesting time in the morning! LOL!

Aldo hoping my friend has a great labor and a happy, healthy baby! :-)


Update on the morning and pics on page 3.

The kids know me very well now. They were at my house almost all afternoon and evening yesterday. And their dad just dropped them off with me for a few hours this evening so he can go visit his wife and baby in the hospital. I am beyond wiped out, but at least they are really good kids.

Although, i have to say having 5 kids around the house the last 2 days I think i just felt my tubes tying themselves! LOL!

Just tell them that Mommy went to have the new baby, & that Daddy will be home soon to tell them all about it.  Don't promise he will take them to meet the baby right away, just in case he doesn't plan that.  They will be fine.

 I would see if they want to decorate the house with congratulations mommy. Grab some markers and crayons and have them welcome the new baby? Make it memorable for them. That way they are doing something for mommy and their new sibling?

Update-
The kids were great. To my surprise they were not put off by it at all. Tje luttlest one ran tonme hugged me, asked where her mom was and after i td her, she said, "okay can we eat now?" and the 3 yr old was thrilled to see my DD. he ran to her and said, lets play Molly.

My friend had her baby at 2:15. 8 lb 4 oz natural birth .

I took the 3 yr d with me for the day and the dad took the 2 yr old to a Dr. Appt. I just met the dad at 1:00 and he is putting the kids down for nap.

I went to see my friend and the baby is so cute!!!!

The dad is bringing the kids to my house after nap so he can go back to the hospital for a while.

I am gonna be so whiped out. I have my DD's birthday party in Saturday and was supposed to spend today shopping and getting ready for it. Oh, we'll tomorrow is gonna be busy!

Thanks for all the replies last night!
