Déjà vu all over again!

At least that's got to be what Jillian, one of the schedulers that I work with, is thinking at this point. Jillian gave birth to a beautiful baby boy back on my birthday - September 9th - and she just found out this week that she's pregnant again. Which means that she'll be having this next baby right about the same time she had her son. Hoky smokes, Bullwinkle!

Not that I have a lot of room to talk myself as I had Jamie only a little over 13 months after I gave birth to Amanda but it wasn't planned that way and I really wasn't all that thrilled about it. There are things that you just don't think about when you have your kids that close together - things like needing a second baby crib or other baby furniture like a high chair, baby swing, etc. Never mind double on the diapers and formula and all those other things that go along with babies. I remember having one very big and very full diaper bag to cart around with me! That's probably where my back problems began now that I think about it!

Jilly is sort of excited about the blessed event but she admits that her significant other is more happy about it than she is. Of course, it's so much easier for a man as they don't have to go through the nine months of pregnancy and labor and delivery and all of that fun stuff. It would be great to see just one guy go through that just once! Maybe the entire male population would be more understanding about it then. Maybe!

In the meantime, Jilly's hoping for a girl so send good thoughts of that to the stork for her!


  1. Sending her good pregnancy vibes.

    My girls are 21 months apart and that is close enough for me. A smaller gap than that would be much work.

    My youngest daughter had her two boys almost exactly 11 months apart. She's definitely got her hands full now.

  3. My Mom always said if men had the children, the birth rate would be cut at least in half!
