false alarm!

I wanted to take a minute to share a funny story. Wednesday night SU played Georgetown. This was a "big game" and Vince was hyped up for it. When game time arrived at 7:30 Vince sent out a text to a few people stating "Here we go!" He immediately received a response from Jon asking if he was referring to SU or labor. Vince laughed it off and clarified the message for Jon and went on with listening to SU lose miserably.

At about 10pm our cell phones both rang simultaneously. Our friend Monica was calling my phone demanding to know what was going on and if I was okay. Bridget was calling Vince's phone because Monica had already made multiple calls to other people trying to decipher the text message she received. Vince had assumed Monica would have been home watching the game with her husband, but this was obviously not the case and the message sent her into a tailspin. After calming everyone's nerves and promising that the actual announcement of labor starting would be much clearer, I had a good laugh over it!

It is good to know that our friends are ready to spring into action when the time comes! We are holding out for at least a couple more weeks though! :-)
