Three More Sleeps!

OK, it's been far too long. Here's the deal; firstly, Candance at Crazy Texas Mommy nominated me for an award, so I've been working on my response, which entails further nominations, and some personal revelations. That's taken awhile, but I promise, it's coming.

Secondly, nesting instinct is in full swing. THREE SLEEPS LEFT! I spent my morning cleaning the bathrooms (I've taken that one on since Andrea's been breathing for two), vacuuming, then cleaning some grisly sludge from under the pet food stand. Any parenting book will say that it's time for dad to step up, and pull a little more domestic weight, and honey, step up, I did! I mean, I did chores before, but since I heard the term “Chore Play,” I've really brought my A-Game.

Yesterday at work, a friend asked how I was doing, and honestly, I've kinda settled into the waiting space. I guess I've spent-out my anxiety, for now, and I'm getting a little tired of having the same conversation with co-workers. “Yes, we're excited...” “We're as ready as we can be...” yadda, yadda. Then this friend said, “Dude, you're gonna be a mess! You're gonna be crying out your nose!” Even typing it, I'm laughing; he painted quite a picture!

Well, there it is. Wish I had more time, but I've got to get ready for work. yippee. Just wanted to let y'all know I was thinking of you! (Please pardon the Hallmark moment)


  1. So are you excited, do you want a girl or a boy... sorry just being a wise arse.

    Seriously good luck. I have managed to not kill mine and they are now 15 and 20. lol


  2. I could go either way, but boys definitely have the cooler toys!

  3. dude, I know how you feel!!

    the same convo over and over and over and over and over and over and over...

    Good luck sir, and we'll be waiting here to see how it all goes!

    Hope your wife's labor is fast and easy, and yes, it is possible.

  4. I beg to differ on who has cooler toys... at least girls can play with trucks and dolls. Boys playing with dolls aren't so accepted...not that I would mind..just saying.

    And Orientation to Life is what they call Life Skills where my daughter goes to HS or freshman seminar... in other words, health class, sex ed and how to cope with HS and social pressures etc..

    think how fun it will be when your child finally gets there. lol

  5. Maybe by the time my young'un goes to high school. it'll be "Just Say No to the Downloadably High." EPot, and EMeth and EE.
