Scully, At 6:50 A.M. or Why You Should Call With The Big News At Lunch

Telephone rings, Caller ID reads 'Mime's Cell'

Me (still groggy): Hello?

Mime (sounding chipper, like he has been up for hours): Scully?

Me: uh-huh. Is everything ok?

Mime: Yeah, why?

Me: It's quarter-to-seven in the morning.

Mime: Mrs. Mime is having a baby.

Me: Is this a joke?

Mime (slightly offended): No! We just found out.

Me: Oh. . . . Congratulations!

Now I see how it is. If I have anything else exciting I won't tell you until the afternoon. I THOUGHT someone would be excited to be an Aunt but NOOO. If it happens before noon it is to early. Just joking Scully. I only have one rule. You can't be with the kid at anytime because you would probably corrupt them WAY to much. Love ya Scully. To those that don't know me. Yes I am THE Mime. Oh yeah and it was after 7 that I called. NOT 6:50!!!

Congratulations to Mr. and Mrs. Mime! That is very exciting for them and for you to be a new aunt!

Oh.. how old I feel!

Yeah!! What a great Christmas bonus! Now you'll be a real aunt and a sort of aunt as well!! Now you can get some practice in with babies before you have your own. Which is valuable since taking care of babies is harder than I ever imagined. I'm so glad babybear is out of that stage!

I think that rule will last all of five seconds. Because you and Mrs. Mime will have been baby-ing 24-7 and one little offer to baby-sit and you both will be out of there faster than you can say 'Yes, Thank you.'

Scully, I've been reading the blog & not having the time to comment. Shame on me. I hope you got the Christmas Card. We wish you were here to share this sometimes magical-crazy season. We sure miss you. Congradulations to Mime! And happy Christmas bonus.
