Over the weekend I had some stuff I was working out in my head and I thought about asking for advice. My first thought was to come here and ask you guys. How cool is that that (most of) you guys are so great that I thought about asking you first?

I got it figured out so I'm good, but I wanted to let you guys know how very awesome this little "community" we have is that we (mostly) all come here from time to time for advice and know we will get GOOD advice.

I just wanted to let you guys know...I love you guys!

I can relate... this is usually one of my first stops, if not THE first, on the advice asking and/or opinion polling.

At least it's warming up, I'll give it that much. I sat on my covered deck in the rain yesterday.

And the sun is coming up earlier -- there's daylight in the sky by 5:30, 6 a.m. now.

I thought it was weird that people showed up at the hospital with basics -- diapers, formula, etc. You'd think they'd know the hospital would have all of that. Wouldn't it?

It's a bit strange but perhaps they heard about it, wanted to do something but didn't know what to do -- so they picked up some items the baby would need.

Knowing how boys are prized over there, I wonder what the response would have been if it was a girl. Just sayin'.

I"m assuming it's either a second child (not allowed), or the mother is very young and didn't realize she was about to give birth (b/c I've had several moms tell me that they thought they were going to have a bowel movement while in labor, but nurses would tell them it just felt like that, that it's really the baby being born).

We had a half day on Friday and off yesterday for the holiday, and it feels like I've been gone for a week. How did this much work crap pile up in such a short amount of time? Yesterday was a holiday for EVERYONE!
