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….
