You Can Do It

"You can do it, you can do it, you can, you can! You can do it, you can, you can!"

When I found out the recent news my second child was on the way this popular cheer (at least back when I was in high school) went off in my head. It was either that or the "You can do it!" catch-phrase made popular by Rob Schneider. :)

There will now be 2:
  • minds to educate
  • sleeping patterns
  • mouths to feed and eating rituals
  • bodies to clean and clothe
  • car seats to strap in the kids
And the list could go on and on. It's not a list of worries, but just the opposite. It's a motivator stressing me to get up each day, stay healthy, be responsible, and be an example. I'll now have twice the joy and experiences of helping to raise another little miracle. Of course I'll lose some sleep and have more responsibility. It's going to be a great adventure and having more to do makes life more meaningful and interesting. Just look at Jon and Kate Plus 8. Talk about major responsibility. I'll do my best. I can do it, I can, I can.

Now, is it going to be a boy or girl? My wife has been quite sick during this pregnancy. More so than with Madeline. It's been rough, but we're almost out of the sick phase. The baby's heart rate is high and the Chinese birth chart says it's a girl. We'll see, but both the doctor and I think it's another girl.
