But I have a question.

Soon, by the way. Due date was last week. Dr is closely monitoring the situation. Current plan is to induce labor in the next few days.

So for the question. Last night my wife said "Well, once she goes in the hospital, J needs to be with her until the baby is born."

Now, I'm not dumb enough to argue with my wife about something like that, so I shut up. But inside I thought "Why? The boy is working 40 hours a week and taking 9 credit hours. Why does he need to miss a day or two of work and a class when her mom and MIL both live within five minutes from the hospital? What's he gonna do, boil water?"

Just thinking guy thoughts here. Thoughts I'm keeping to myself, because I know as much about birthing babies as Butterfly Mcqueen.
