s/he’ll be comin’….

can anyone else finish that lyric???…………….. ’round the mountain when s/he comes.

now, i don’t feel like racking my brain for other stupid lyrics. & i’m sure they’re out there.  but really?  isn’t that a dumb lyric?  of COURSE she’ll be coming—when she comes.   guess whoever wrote that wasn’t very concerned w/ accurate timing.       i can hear it now:    “hey! Joe- when’s mom coming home?”  “she’ll be coming round the mountain when she comes….  now bugoff!”

well, i guess whoever  wrote that song also invented the concept of maternity leave.

i’m sure i’m not the only one who finds it a little stressful to not know when little bean will come.  i’m not wanting to plan a c-section or anything—-  really!  but, man.  trying to figure out leave time on a bunch of “what ifs” can be quite difficult.  besides, i’m not wanting to rush it. i’m enjoying this time. i need to soak in more info. 

so you plan around the “magic” date; which we all know is rare.  but that’s kinda what you have to bank on.  & considering it’s vacation time that’s paid or sick days that are paid or short term disability, there’s a lot of banking here.

this is just one of many times i’ve asked in pregnancy:   just how DOES this work?

when we first got pregnant, i secretly hoped i’d meet Little Bean 3 weeks early so I could have a June baby.  now—  oh gosh, no! please!!!!  b/c i’m taking 2 weeks off before LB comes so i won’t go into labor at work and can have some time to myself.  because i want to be lazy get things done.  so if LB makes a june appearance, i’m screwed!

so, y’all- when’s baby comin’?   guess it’ll get here when it gets here.  just like the song says….

    As a July baby myself, I’m hoping you do get your two weeks to yourself. Little Elvis was due 3 days after Valentine’s Day, and my boss kept telling me he would be a Valentine’s baby. He actually arrived a week early, so I think he might be a George Washington’s birthday baby? I understand, though. It’s hard not knowing when you get to meet your baby.

  3. […] day late…. i wanted to post last night to mark the monumentous occasion that could possibly be ONE MONTH to go till Little Bean comes.  however, we didn’t get back from our 1st session of […]
