The first and last bands listed on my Ipod meme in the post below bring back memories relating to The Boy.
In between the loss of Baby Snowpea and my next pregnancy we went to a friend's party where they played a game where we all sat in a circle with a pen and a piece of paper that had a particular writing category on it. For instance, mine said 'recipe' another said 'fable' another said 'short story', etc... We would write for a couple of minutes and then pass the paper to the next person. We did this until they went all the way around the circle and then we read them.
I forget what the heading of the story was but one of them started talking about babies and the various challenges - all humorous - that come with having them. And then the tone of the paper turned saying something like :but babies are warm and snuggly and make you want to kiss them all over and sing cheesy Air Supply songs to them... To my surprise it was TDH who had written that and for so many reasons that was a relief and a joy.
When I found out I was pregnant with The Boy I told TDH by blaring Air Supply's greatest hits through the house and watching as he slowly realized what that meant.
As for the Timberlake, well that is a slightly less gentile story. Basically my friend who gave me that as a fun gift for my birthday takes TOTAL credit for The Boy being with us today since I told her I was going to open it immediately 'to get in the mood' and we do believe that the conception date was my birthday.
I know, iw.
