Three Years
Possibly the Most Foul-Mouthed Entry I've Ever Published & That's Fucking Saying Something

Probably Not One For the Baby Book

It just occurred to me that by this time in TWO WEEKS, as in TWO WEEKS from today, I will have another child, as in an infant living outside of my body, plus a three-year-old, in just TWO WEEKS, TWO WEEKS, and that's if I make it to the c-section date, which I might not, but either way, TWO WEEKS, holy fucking shit popsicle on a fucking stick.

That is all. As you were.



alright!!! let's calm down here lady!!!

let's all take a deep breath.... Together breathe in....Together breathe out......see! all better!

You haven't screwed Noah up just yet (give it time) so I'm sure everything will be juuuuuuust fine. :):)


Believe me, 2 kids are waaay better than a shit popsicle. Deep breaths and think of noms on baby chub!


I just went back and looked at your Sept-Oct 05 archives to see pictures of you and Noah when he was all shiny and new (and you weren't quite as shiny and fact, you looked, um, well...tired. Let's just leave it at that.)

I cannot wait to meet Baby Tivo. Babalah Version 2.

But probably not nearly as much as YOU and Jason want to meet him!

:) Hang in there.

Two weeks. Two weeks.


You just made me fast forward 14 weeks to when I'll be two weeks away from my due date with my first child. I didn't really need that by the way. I'm already freaking out. By the by, I read your archives a while back and you mentioned that you didn't want anyone staying at your house the first two weeks after Noah was born. Would you do that again? I'm kind of wishing I could keep everyone out for a while, but that's not going to happen. Just wanted to know what your experience was like then and looking back on it. Your blog is the shiznit BTW.


And?....Oh, I'm just teasing ya, Amy. It'll be fine. You'll do great and have some hilarious, crazy story to tell us to boot. What an exciting time of your life! Glad to share it with you in our small way.


All I can say is "YIKES"


That's really exciting!! In two weeks I will be twenty, which is freaking me out. I don't think it's *quite* the same as a new human being though..


Just remember: in 2 weeks!!! you will have another baby boy who, along with his big brother, will light up your life even more than it is now! :)

Eeek, sorry about the double post!!! Stupid computer delay.


Hell, I think you should get that engraved on the bookplate. Alternatively: on the first page, under the title "Prologue."

Nothing But Bonfires

Wow, and to think I was freaking out about being on vacation in Rome in only TWO WEEKS and all the things I need to do before then. You put things in perspective for me, thank you. I think a baby is better than Rome though.


great little post! wow 2 weeks, ahh! super excited for you.


Yeah... it's crazy, isn't it? But you can do it! Seriously though, if I can do it, you can too. And after a month or two, it'll feel like your family has always had two kids.

Thinking good thoughts your way!


As a mom of twins, let me just say that 2 kids are the best!




wait. when? I missed it.


I'm so excited for you! I'm sure you will be a pro at the two child thing! Yaaaa! Oh, and try to stay calm :).


Yup. Riiiiight there with ya - except I don't have a scheduled date, just a general acknowledgment of impending doom.

"Holy Fucking Shit Popsicle On A Fucking Stick" - coming soon to your grocer's freezer section!
Hang in there!


As you might say.... Squeee!!!


You'll be fine. Take a deep breath and go eat some ice cream. :-)


My c-section is 2 weeks from yesteday. I am so scared. I am much more nervous about the 2nd than I was the first.


I like when you swear. he he.


Yah, I totally hear you! I'm due Oct. 30th with #2, but, let's face it, anything after next week is fair game. I feel a bit guilty because I'm thinking totally about logistics: having enough food in the house for post-partum period, who will look after toddler while I give birth, bags to pack, things to buy, etc...I forget sometimes that, holy crap, there's going to be a new PERSON living here by the end of the month. It freaks me out.

So please, continue to freak out when needed, it makes me feel less lonely over here in freaky freak out world.


Ditto! Except, replace TWO weeks with FOUR weeks but more likely THREE weeks and you're right on target.

Trippy, huh?


"holy fucking shit popsicle on a fucking stick"

That's catchy. I think I'll have it put on a t-shirt. ;)


So excited for you and your boys! I just found out I'm having my second in June and I'm already freaking out, I can't imagine what I'll be like two weeks before my due date... "holy fucking shit popsicle on a fucking stick" might be adequate. I keep thinking before your page loads we'll get a post from Jason saying, HE'S HERE!!


Yup, two weeks! Hey, my daughter turns three that day. Its a great birthday!


Is "holy fucking shit popsicle on a fucking stick" a copyrighted phrase??? I think I'd like that on a onesie...

Deep Breaths. Happy Thoughts. Rinse and repeat. You can do this!


Get ready -- it's a whole different ballgame with a toddler around. Just line people up to play with Noah so can either sleep or stare at the new baby. You'll need that for a good two weeks. Then, you'll come out of your newborn fog and realize you need to play with the older one too. And it will be somewhat easy in the beginning because NewBaby will sleep most of the time. If you are lucky. Which I am hoping you will be!


TWO WEEKS! at least you won't be afflicted with the pregnancy body :)... and 10 months of waiting over!


You're gonna be awesome!


It's hard to believe, isn't it? And two months from now you will hardly be able to remember life with one baby...uhhh..I mean big boy.


Everything will be okay, sweetie. You'll have wee little diapers and that delicious baby neck to snuffle and tiny footie jammies. You'll teach Noah signs for "baby" and "brother" and "I love you", and you will have more love in your life than you thought possible. Hang in there! :)




I don't know about you, but...I can't wait!


For the love of God, woman what are you doing up in front of a computer! Get back to sleep, now. And take a shit load of cake with you. And maybe some crappy tv.

It will be good. Really. Honest. I say that with the breezy amnesia of a mother of 2 boys 22 months apart, so, yunno, you can trust me.


"Holy Fucking Shit Popsicle On A Fucking Stick"...oh my God, I love that.

Can't wait to meet the new little one.


That Popsicle bit was basically our reaction when the ultrasound tech told us we're having twins. Yikes! Best of luck to you. You've done an awesome job as mom to one. I'm sure it won't take you long to get the hang of two.


It isn't that two are 2 1/2 years apart. You will be pleasantly surprised!


And those of us sitting at only 15 1/2 weeks are like...I'm SO jealous.


Ok. Don't panic. I have a set of twin boys at home...and I'm due with #3 less than two weeks after they turn two years old in April. You are totally gonna be fine. Me, on the other hand, may need some live in help...


Reading this brought tears to my eyes. Of course, I'm close to being in the same boat you are - my son just turned 20 months old and I am months pregnant with our 2nd son. I can't believe that soon I'm going to have two boys almost 2 years apart.

Also - you look great! I haven't commented in a long time but I log on to see how you are every few days. Hang in there!!

Happy Birthday, Noah! He is just beautiful.


I'm more than a wee bit jealous...


you. will. be. fine.
my biggest fear at that moment was "how the hell do you take two kids shopping at target?" i figured it out...and so will you.
and incredibly awesome to watch them TOGETHER. having her meet her, was my favorite moment of my littlest's life.


I can just tell that you are SO EXCITED!


Exciting and terrifying all at the same time!!


Speaking from experience: things are about to get shit-ass CRAZY! You'll do great :) You survived one, you can handle two.
