Timing is everything

Hope this isn't TMI, but husband & I were ... well, let's just say we were having fun together after midnight ... and the phone rang at a most inopportune time.

I answered, since my daughter is away in Virginia and you just never know what might go wrong... I was hoping it was a wrong number.

It was my friend's husband. My friend is having a baby. She's due in two weeks, but the baby is arriving now. She needed someone to come stay with her other 5 kids while she goes to the hospital to give birth.

So here I am, wide awake at 3 a.m., glad I could help but (if I'm honest) also wishing I were still at home snuggling with my guy. And then again I'm grinning ear to ear, because I'm so glad it was happy news and not bad news, at 2 a.m. when the telephone rang.

If there's one thing I've learned in life, it's that babies come when they're ready. They do not wait for it to be "convenient" for everyone else.

I can't wait to meet the new little one.

Happy to hear it was good news, and by the way, only a women would answer the phone at that time. A guy wouldn't care if a plane crashed into the house, I'm just sayin...

I agree with SkylersDad except with a daughter being away, I probably would have answered, though not very friendly like. ;0)

Glad the kid is okay. And a married woman was getting it on with her husband at home?! OH MY GOD! LA LA LA I CAN'T HEAR YOU TMI! j/k

Oh, my! The idea of your friend having 6 kids just might make me never want to get busy after midnight again!

that's what friends are for! I'm glad it was good news too. I always feared the worst if the phone rang after midnight too.
