Baby watch

During her last visit to the ob-gyn, my sister-in-law was told she'll deliver this week. I picked March 17th on the baby pool. For real, my niece is coming on St. Patty's day, and I'm going to win the pot.



I have a hard-and-fast rule about obstetric predictions. I don't predict the birth date until the first stage of labor. And I don't predict the sex until the third stage of labor.

Hope you win the pool, though. And I know she's going to love her room!

Should we start calling you "Auntie Drina" once the young'un arrives?

Drina-diva, are "Your Old Roomie" and Steph the same woman? Also, I forgot the curtain last time, dangit! Sayonara!

You shouldn't call a boy your niece, it may develope a complex. It can't be born on St. Pat's day because I already have plans that day.

I predict the BABY will be born on
March 23

Roses are red, Violets are blue,
the baby will come when it darn well wants to!

Pools and plans don't concern "it" a bit, for no matter what, it will be a hit.

Mom, dad and the grandparents, aunts and uncle too, are all waiting PATIENTLY for the arriaval anew!

Joan, thanks! I hope she does love her room... if she doesn't, she'll have to pretend, at least when I'm around.

Monster, yes, they are one and the same. And no, do not call me Auntie Drina. Drina-Diva will do just fine.

Pat, my niece doesn't like your attitude. And neither do I.

Bro, stop encouraging him.

Teta Micika, one fabulous person being born on March 23rd is quite enough. I think the 17th will do just fine.

Mommy-to-be, the baby doesn't understand poetry yet. Incidentally, neither does her uncle or father, so you may have lost half your audience on that last one. Nice touch, though.
