    Michael K's Having a Baby

    Post by Michael K. on Wed Jan 07, 2015 4:18 am

    Rather than polluting other threads with this noise, I'll keep it contained here.

    We went to our first birthing class tonight. Wild stuff. I'd be foolish if I were to say I feel prepared, but I definitely feel capable of kicking ass as emotional doula/director of operations during the birthing process and after. We're 6.25 months into this, btw.

    Meredith needed to make a call after the class, but before we got dinner. Parked outside of a whiskey joint, so I drank whisk(e)y while she talked on the phone. Luckily she came in to get me as I was polishing off my second glass. If she hadn't, there were a couple oz of Pappy Van w/ my name on them.

    And Lord knows I need to spend $60 on a shot of bourbon right now like I need a hole in my head.

    Good job buddy. For certain, a net gain for the world. Best of luck with the craziness.

    We're having a girl. My wife isn't super keen on enforcing traditional childhood gender roles, which is lovely because I won't be surrounded by pink - nothing against pink, I just would rather not be inundated by any single color - and we'll be able to use some of the clothing no matter what when we do this again in a couple years.

    Thanks for all the well-wishes, even though I'm pretty sure they were all covered in a previous (off-topic) thread w/ very few details.

    We were the same way with Miniboss but now I'm trying to find a good price on one of these:

    A little girly is fine. Particularly when it's something that badass.

    Don't know what to tell you; it's just a picture of a baby though, so nothing super special. Here's another one:
