The waiting is the hardest part

It looks like our parent initiation will be put off one more day. The hospital is apparently chock full o' delivering women, so there's no room at the inn unless we want to deliver TBD in a stable. The plan is to get The Lovely Becky in the hospital this afternoon and induce tomorrow morning. Since we're just hanging out and waiting, I'll turn things over to today's house band:

AAArrgghhh!! TBD, come on! The suspense is killing us!!!

billy pilgrim said...

Appropriate video. Tom looks like a frickin baby.

At this point, Missus pilgrim was all "I just want it OUT of me!!"

came close to having induction, but Young made it just under the wire. But still, he was in no hurry to come out.

Neither was I, come to think of it. two weeks late.

Hang in there!

That's what happens when there's a full moon. I had my daughter when there was a full moon and there were so many women delivering way too early, that they kind of forgot about me. Weird, huh?

Adorable Girlfriend said...

That is crazzzy.

Well, while you are there. Howz about checking out the doctor's lounge for kippas, stars of davids and no wedding bands?

Seriously, TBD, AG wants to hold you and go "aaaawwwwh"!

Man oh man oh man oh man!

The full moon got in the way when BK was born, too. A ton of pregnant women in labor and the hospital was short on staff.

Haven't they figured out the full moon situation yet??!!

Hang in there, guys! (Easy for me to say...)

Noelle said...

Wait a second, I just finished reading my celebrity blogs... Is TLB really Jamie Lynn Spears?

Snag said...

You know what was hilarious during my wife's own first pregnancy? When they missed the window for the epidural and she had to go without. We still laugh about that one.

Thinking of you both here.

Jennifer said...

Good things are worth the wait, but believe me, I know how READY YOU BOTH ARE!!@!1!! :)

I truly hope TBD starts the ball rolling on his/her own and to hell with induction!

Brando said...

Snag, you need to write a book with that kind of stuff in it.

It appears we will get in the hospital tonight -- we're waiting to be cleared for landing. I do think the full moon triggered a 21-womb salute. TLB is doing some editing and I played a game of video baseball to take my mind off things.

Kathleen said...

hope you are all checked in to the hospital and everything is going well!!

fish said...

This is exactly why fish opt for external fertilization.

Don't worry, when they induce with 10X the normal hormone dose, the contractions are much weaker than when they occur naturally. Ignore those scars on the back of my hand, that was a hunting accident. Really.

Brando, I hope everything goes well tonight. I want you to know that I watched the moon rise over Fenway Park, and it was so beautiful, I just felt whoever was born under that moon is already part of something special. Or tomorrow. Whenever.

Pinko Punko said...

Bebbeh- get outta ma belleh!

To UC- that was no moon!

Adorable Girlfriend said...

TBD: Today is your day!!!!

Judge Smails said...

Welllllllll? We're waiting.

blue girl said...

A little music (that I'm sure BP will *love) while we wait.

billy pilgrim said...

Bad music videos are, I hear, an Internet Tradition.

Jennifer said...

I'm sticking with this.

blue girl said...

How 'bout this?!

I can see Brando singin' it in his hipster white tight pants.

Kathleen said...

and his sweater vest!!!!

Kathleen said...

ps. that Paul Anka song SUCKS.

"you're having my baby.
what a lovely way to show yo're thinking of me"


Um, next time, try a card.

blue girl said...

Kathleen, Oh my God, I know! It actually makes my skin crawl.

I guess TLB might be showing Brando how much she loves him right about now with a good smack upside his head! lol.

Maybe not. I didn't punch The Skimmer even once.

Kathleen said...

I have a feeling Brando & TLB might need something to help them relax a little. Is that possible? here ya go.

Jennifer said...

relax??

fish said...

Little too late for that J.

Jennifer said...

For TLB.

Yes, it's alright to cry, crying gets the baby out of you... :)

Fish... I know, I know. Relaxing is usually gets people into this quandary.

Brando said...

I think Blue Girl was on the right track -- John Waite would be a good name for this kid.

Kathleen said...

hey now, let's not forget that Brando and TLB are people!
