Have you heard of a Babymoon? I sure hadn't ... until today.

A babymoon is a period of time that parents spend bonding with a recently-born baby. BUT ... more recently the term is used to describe a vacation taken by the couple that is expecting, to allow the couple to enjoy a final trip together before the many sleepless nights that usually accompany a newborn baby. Babymoons usually take place at a resort that offers spa-like services like prenatal massage.

I think it's a great idea! In a sense, we just took a "familymoon". It was our last big vacation, just Doug, Aidan and I, to California before the baby girl arrives. Since I will most like have a c-section, a scheduled birth date, I think we'll do a "home babymoon" the week before the big day clearing our calendar and enjoying some down time at home just the three of us. Even Aidan can call the shots, choosing his favorite activities, meals and movies that week. Maybe he can miss a day of school or so ...
