Should I be worried...

...That I've totally gotten the date wrong for the first act of childcare we would have been involved in since we began trying distort my wife's body forever through conception?

I was only a week out. That doesn't mean anything, does it?

...."Spencer!!!, come back, you're not f*&^ing up to this!".....

I'm not reading too much into this. Honest.

What the fudge are you saying?

as quick on the uptake as ever I see...

babysitting woman, babysitting.

It's not this Tuesday, It's NEXT Tuesday. Slight boo boo.

I don't get you. Like my husband, you start stories in the middle and we have to decode.

More evidence that you are long lost imaginary twins.

Better to remember early than later ... need a gator? ;-)

You're primed and ready for parenthood. I know from experience that the mind begins to play tricks on you as a result. I actually walked out of the house to head to work in my socks this morning. I realized I hadn't put my shoes on when I was opening my car door.

Karen MEG said...

It's sounds like perfectly Dad-ish behaviour to me. Hubs does that sort of thing all the time. You're definitely ready, my friend!

Bettina said...

That's definitely a perfect 'dad' thing to do. I got agree that the evidence is piling up that you are indeed ready ;)

Jayne said...

A-huh, yep I agree with Bettina - you're developing that well-known condition, often suffered by adults near children, called C.R.A.F.T.
Can't Remember A F*&%ing Thing.

BAH! If I had a nickel for every time I did something like that I'd have a few dollars.

bsouth said...

Yup, I'm with all the others - definite parental behaviour!

Just bear in mind it will get a bit awkward if you keep getting dates wrong for all the sprogs vaccination appointments, first day in school, christening, wedding...

EmmaK said...

don't be so hard on yourself for forgetting your date night. Just order in a curry, drink a bottle of whiskey and make love to your lady or if she isn't there, yourself.

Jared said...

If it wasn't for my wife I'd never show up for anything. :D

Our Crooked Tree said...

I am sure you had the date right...we lose our minds when we become parents so I am sure it was their fault. now you will be that much more prepared...or paranoid:)

Joeprah said...

Jared beat me to it. My wife has the schedule, you just need to know when to life heavy things.

Rachel said...

It's parent brain. Happens to the best of us :-) You're just experiencing a slightly advanced and early case of it ;-)

It's good practice. I once took my daughter to a birthday party a week early. The Mom of my daughter's friend answered the door in her bathrobe. I thought she was a VERY casual dresser!

Deb said...

You are SO ready for fatherhood. That's precisely the kind of crap my husband does all the time, except in reverse. He's more likely to show up on a Tuesday and wonder why a strange child is in his livingroom, because he had babysitting down for NEXT TUESDAY.

You're okay. You're just excited.

Deb said...

But I'm with the chick who said you start stories in the wrong place, btw. Get control of that, wouldja?

LaskiGal said...

I think you are just getting a jump on that whole DADNESIA thing . . . practice makes . . . um, what was I saying?

People in the Sun said...

Can't blame you for not thinking straight with all you're going through. Spencer is messing up with your brain.

You know what they say. Sperm... Can't live with them, can't live without.

Hey, I love unintentional puns!

@ALL -

All very wise words, the consensus seems to be that this is nothing to worry about. Thats great bloody news...

Suppose it IS better I was a week early than late.
