Settling In

Okay, we have made it into the Labor and Delivery room. Aunt Linda is an RN nurse here in the unit and is taking great care of my Sweetheart. Actually, we know quite a few of the staff here, which should make the stay a lot better. If not, Sweetheart can call NICU, respiratory therapy, and radiology and rattle a few cages.

Now that we are at the hospital, I can update the rest of the community about the secret between the boys. Row has not told a single soul about the sex of the baby. Red Ant is another story. If you asked Red Ant about the sex of the baby, he would tell you that you were trying to trick him. After a few minutes, and alone, he would saddle up to them and whisper, "I have a secret to tell you. It's a boy, but it's okay to tell a secret to one person...if you really need to,but don't tell your neighbor." Well, he has told both Grandmothers, Mimi, two Aunts, and our neighbor (that we know of).

I was talking with the neighbor, and he asked if we knew the sex of the baby yet? He knows the situation about the secret. I told him about how Red Ant had been telling people, and he started to laugh that Red Ant had told him about a month ago. Red Ant came over to visit his boys for a Nerf War, and matter of factly told him that, "Oh yeah, It's a boy."

@Wolfman : Row kept the secret, and Red Ant came pretty darn close.

My new job has been amazing, and over whelming at the same time. I set high standards for myself, and want to do excellent work. So, I tend to be a little hard on myself, but after a week, I'm starting to get a little more comfortable filling out paperwork, and running the MRI scans. There are only six people in the office and everyone pitches in and helps one another, which is refreshing.

The next post should be a photo of the newest little boy to our family.

Keep Right On Prepping - K


  1. Many Congratulations ! I won't tell a soul the sex of the baby ! It's just between us. LOL

  2. Congratulations, both about the new baby and your admirable young men! We all know how hard it is to keep a secret when EVERYONE wants to know. Nicely done, Row, and a valiant effort on Red Ant's part! Mazel Tov!
