    The good news cancels out the second thing. By a mile. God Bless.

    Poor planning.

    Both my children were born in September.

    Congratulations!

    You'll know your child's first name on May 27th around 3:30 PM pending any rain and/or red flags.

    Our first was due at the end of May 2009.

    He held out until the first minute of June. (He would have been a May baby if not for DST. )
    In addition to math, science, and language studies, our schools should be teaching personal finance and logic, both of which are key to personal success and wisdom -- and which are seriously lacking in the general population.

    Look at it this way - your mandatory participation in the event has already ended. The rest can be done without you.

    My mom and dad planned me for November because mom knew that dad would be at the track instead of at the hospital.
    Insert something witty here. I don't care.

    Chris, I cannot believe there is a woman who allows you to take such liberties.

    Seriously...congratulations and Indy is not that far away from where you live. On Southwest.

    COngrats! My daughter was born the day before Nazareth in 97. My wife said go to the race on Sunday because they weren’t supposed to send them home until monday. I got home from the race and they were home.

    Congratulations! I was born in the middle of may - my Dad was on a plane to Indy a day or two later. I feel for my mother on that one!!! She put up with an awful lot.
