New Rules of the Baby Pool

If you haven't entered the baby pool, go here and leave a comment as for your prediction of when this new little bundle of joy will be joining our family. For those of you who have entered, thanks! This will be fun!

New Rule Number One:
The winner will not get the chance to name the baby. Sorry Dan, but Mufasa and Mack are not currently in the running for the name on which I will bestow my child for life. Dad, I'm not naming him Pear. Marty, we are not going with Whoopsie. I have not had the honor of naming any of my children, and I am not giving the right to anyone else. Sorry.

New Rule Number Two:
If Tracie misses the birth of this child, I will not continue to push babies out of my body just for the sole purpose of letting Tracie watch. Darling, this is three chances. If you can't make it to one, it's your loss. I might suggest living in your trailer in our driveway for a while, so you don't miss it. Or tell Grandpa to delay his birthday for a few weeks so you are not out of town every time. Your choice.

New Rule Number Three:
OK, I really only had two new rules, but it seemed a bit short. So I will stall a little, let's all pretend I am coming up with a new rule here, ok? Doo, dee, doo, doo, doo, dee, doo... can anyone name the song? Alrighty then, I think we've stalled enough.

Have fun with the pool!

I have never had a problem with your posts, until this one. Here's why...

I think you're being mean to Marty, Whoopsie is a great name! He'll never know what it means!!

I think you're being selfish and mean to Tracie, and grandpa! Just cross your legs and wait for Tracie to come back. This is her last chance to be there, you should respect her wishes, especially this time of year. I'm ashamed.

And lastly, I think you were singing the jeopardy song.

I love you! Can't wait to hear a wonderful baby story :)

I am surprised at you!! It has not been three chances to watch the birth of your children. I have only had one chance so far. I did not know you very well when you were pregnant with Emma, and I missed the birth of the twins. That is only one chance. I pray I make it to this one, but if not, I will be ok. I just have to respect that God has other plans for me and seeing you give birth may not be one of them. I hope it is though.
Love you (and baby Mustafa)

Wow, I'm getting yelled at here! :) Tracie, this will be three chances. Just because the second chance was four minutes after the first doesn't mean there wasn't a chance! I will do my best to take Brenda's advice and cross my legs. I think you will make it, though! Love you!

Brenda, congrats, it was the jeopardy song. You are the big winner!!! Yay!!!
