New baby soon...

Discussion in 'Off Topic [BG]' started by mike_v_s, Feb 21, 2005.

  1. My second child, nicknamed "Deuce", is scheduled for delivery (we will induce the Deuce) later this week. I've been buried under so much work that I haven't had time for the moment to sink in. I've been given a list of things that need to be sewn up at work before I take the next week off.... anybody hiring?

    Anyway, it's crazy and I'm starting to wonder how I'll ever juggle it all and not lose it. Just rambling.......

    You'll be fine. Just don't get too stressed about anything, because there is always a way for things to work out just fine.

    Im sorry :(

  4. I'm sorry... but what if you drop him accidentally? Then he would be teased by all his classmates!

    "He dropped a deuce!"

    I'm sorry, it's just too much...

    Seriously, congrats... :)
  5. "Duece" will actually be a girl, and probably never called that to her face, but before the gender was identified, we went with it.

    When I hear the name Slidell, I think of Bob Slidell, the "efficiency expert" from Office Space.

    how about "secunda"

    true story, it wasnt uncommon in the roman empire to name daughters prima, secunda, etc........in terms of birth order. "real" names being reserved for the boys.

    congrats. the 2nd kid isnt as big of an adjustment as the 1st. the families i knwo with several children all claim that the 1st and the 3rd child are the biggest adjustments. anyhow, be prepared to be amazed at how unlike each other your children are. also, if you're like most, in a few years you will realize that you havn't taken half the pictures of the second kid as you did of the 1st.
  11. CONGRATS!!!!!!! :hyper: :D :hyper: :D Deuce, that is a great name.

    I think Moon Unit is a nice safe name to go with.

    Congrats Mike! That's a pretty funny post though. :D

    I've seen a bunch of new fathers get really "out there", the world tends to become pretty wild during those times, doesn't it? :)

    Now you can look forward to some more sleepless nights!

    Seriously though, that's pretty cool. Well worth it, isn't it? :):):)
  14. Thanks everyone....my sanity will probably be taking a temporary leave of absence.

    Actually, we're going to Lakeview in Mandeville...it's a long story.

    Congrats, Mike! :hyper:

    Wow, you're only taking a week off eh? I took a month off and I still wasn't ready to come back to work! ;) Have you figured out what her name will be?

    Best of luck!

    Dude...you live in Lousiana, you left your sanity at the border!


    ...and there's proof...


    Must be a VERY GOOD reason for it, as that's probably what...a 45 minute drive???

    In any event, hope things go well, and definitely keep us posted!!
  17. I was able to take 2 weeks off with my first. I wish taking more time was an option, but my job REALLY sucks (I'll be working while at home next week, so I'm not even really off). I'll reiterate again...if anyone is hiring, I'm looking. Name?
