Is it too late to update my birth plan?

On the way to the hospital to have our first baby, we made lots of stops. Well, it was the height of the Christmas shopping season and to be honest, I was scared. So I threw all of my energy into the list of things to bring to the hospital provided in one of the many birth books I had at the time, and announced Champagne. We had to have Champagne. I waited in the car, probably having a contraction, while Erik ran inside a liquor store and bought a bottle of Dom. 
                                                                                                                                  
Then I asked if we could please stop at Toys 'R Us to buy a - omg, I can't believe this now - a car seat. Horrible, horrible, I know. But it was 7 years ago. And ummmmmm - I was first time mom, living in hippy, dippy SF and I thought the hand-me-down car seat I had procured would do just fine, thank you very much. Until, I was faced with the option of actually delivering or an opportunity for more shopping! 


We strolled up and down Haight Street. Maybe I waddled? I remember buying a new robe and new candle. I remember asking to use the restroom and being told that it was for "employees only" and Erik threatening the manager with I-don't-remember-what if they didn't let his wife who was about to give birth go pee.

Today, almost seven years later, I remember nothing about the candle. The bottle of Champagne is still in our fridge. I still wear the robe. But most importantly, we got to come home with the kid!!!
