It was kind of important to me until she put off coming almost a week PURELY because the airport would be crowded on the day she initially planned to come out. She flies out of an airport where it takes less than an hour to get through security on the busiest days of the year - each security line serves 4 gates. My dad is dropping her off, and now has to take off work to do so, unlike with the original plan.
(Sorry, I get a little ranty here.) Then she has the nerve to say "well, if you do go into labor before then, keep your legs crossed until I get there." Because she doesn't want to stand in line for an extra half hour. As of tomorrow, this pregnancy will be longer than my mom's was with me - an optional c-section (my brother was an optional c-section after 6 hours of labor. She scheduled me early to avoid labor.) As of the time she planned on getting here, only one birth from the last two generations will have gone that long - when I pointed that out, she went "well, I'll come two days earlier then." My mom's birth choices don't bother me, but considering them, she has NO right to even joke about me "holding him in" for 10 hours just so she doesn't have to stand in line for an extra half an hour! And she does it EVERY time she calls.
