    Default New shirt

    Well, my wife came to meet me for lunch yesterday, and I learned that she bought Jillian a new shirt.

    Thank you, thank you. God surely has blessed my wife and I. We're very excited, especially since we both were caught by surprise.

    Well... Surely, you can't be that surprised...?

    I mean.... you know what you've been doing....and you knew what that might turn into....

    Well, let's just say we were playing Roman Roulette and our number came up. It's not that we weren't 'ready' for this outcome, and we're very happy about it. It's just weren't 'trying', like we were with Jillian. Based on how long it took for Jillian to come along, I was actually very (pleasantly) surprised.

    Ha, great way to share the news, your wife has. Congrats! Now, you know that part of the Multi-Child Parenthood Pledge is alternating the gender of your children, so that you have to buy entirely new wardrobes. Right?

    I think I'd have had a small heart attack if I was in your position, Don. Rather, uh, interesting way of communicating it, your wife did. Congrats!

    Thank you everyone. And Drone, yeah, I got punched in the stomach by my beloved yesterday for saying, in my best Bill Cosby voice "Well, let's make sure the doctor doesn't slap the stem off the apple this time...".

    Seriously? I'm really on the fence. A matched set or bookends is just fine by me. Healthy and happy, that's all I'm hoping for. Oh, I forgot the Jillian blessing... and that this one two favors his/her mama.

    Jillian says she doesn't care if its a boy or girl either. Just so long as they're quiet and can take orders well.

    That's a clever wife you got there, Don. A keeper.

    Congrats congrats congrats! I know what you mean about gender -- when your wife is all knocked up, all you can think about is "Healthy, please be healthy, please be healthy ..." I didn't really exhale until I could look at the baby for myself, and confirm that all was okay.

    When you think about everything you want for your kid, male and female come way down on the list. (Please be healthy, please be smart, please be attractive, please be strong, please have a sense of humor, please be kind ...oh yeah, I guess I'd like a girl.)

    Assuming you'll have another girl, since Jillian is the Big Sister, that would make the newborn a Little Sister ... and you, Don, will have to get used to playing the part of a Big Daddy.
