I am having the best time reading through everyone's birthday and weight guesses for the belleh babe. If you want to make your OWN guess without my ridiculous neuroses tainting your judgement read no further!
Let us entitle this Being Weird About Numbers and Junk.
And via the power of the internet, I already know there are others out there like me. Others who can't leave the volume on the t.v. at an odd number, for example. Or who wear their watch on their right wrist because they wear their wedding band on their left hand. STOP LOOKING AT ME LIKE THAT. I'M TOTALLY FINE.
Anyway, on to my birthday picking method. Consider the following:
I have only ever gone into labor on Friday. My first baby was induced on a Thursday, so her arrival doesn't figure into the equation, obvi. And now, based on subsequent deliveries, she totally would have come on her own the following day. Clearly.
All our at-home kids have birthdays in the 20s with NO REPEATS : 29th, 28th, 27th, 24th, and 22nd so far.
The birthday, ideally, can be turned into a mathematical equation, e.g. 6/28 ---> 6+2=8
|This is from a few months ago. Can you believe I thought I was "huge" already? HAHAHAHA!|
SO! According to the very important information outlined above, I must go into labor on a Friday and this child can only be born on the 26th, the 25th, the 23rd, the 21st or the 20th. AND if we consult our handy dandy calendars, we will see that cleeeeeeeeeeeeeeearly there is but one birthday option for this young man, and that is May 23rd. Which is a Friday. And a day we've not used. And is in the 20s. And makes an excellent mathematical equation (5-2=3, naturally)
Et voila! Clearly there is no other option. Mea culpa to all of you who've picked other days because I just don't see any other way that this could work out.
God, are you taking notes?
