Baby alert?

Younger Daughter's time is drawing near. My wife's antenna have been up for a few days now, since Younger Daughter recounted her last doctor's visit.

Not only does the original October 2 due date appear unattainable, it also looks like I went too long picking a date in the family pool (September 29 if you need to know). I don't know that I'll be a grandfather at this time tomorrow... "nothing's organized," says Younger Daughter, referring to the signs and symptoms... but Long Suffering Spouse is pretty sure we'll be grandparents by Monday.

On the other hand, Olaf had a job interview this week and it went well. Another is planned. Perhaps tomorrow.

If, of course, he's available.

And his actuary exam is Monday, too.

Everything happens at once. Maybe I'll get some calls on my cases today too. Or is that too much to hope for?

I am so happy for all of you. Praying it all goes well and you are in for the biggest surprise of your life. It's much different with grandchildren than with our own children. Just wait, you'll find out...A whole new kind of feelings and love is just around your corner...All good things coming your way...:):)

P.S. I'm to tired to carry on our conversation below but I will continue it tonight or tomorrow...Absolutely none of it is personal against you. Surely you realize that

Thank you both.

And, Anon, don't worry -- I'm not that fragile; I'm enjoying the give and take... and I hope you can get back to it. I just don't want it to look like I'm defending one guy or trashing the other because I don't mean to.
