I don't want to share!

Confession: I'm not exactly the world's best sharer. Well, that's not true. Let me rephrase: when it comes to things I like, I don't share. I don't even try.

Have some of my broccoli.
Want some of my lemon cookies?
Here - take my chips.

But ice cream? My favorite book (or movie)? Bring leftover Tootsie Rolls to work so I don't eat them all myself? Nah - I'd rather get you your own, because I'M NOT SHARING.

So tonight, on the eve of my birthday, I was thinking one again that I'd better not have baby tomorrow. I know that might sound selfish, but it's as much for her sake as it is for my own. I don't want her to have to share her birthday with me, and I don't want to have to share my birthday with her.

Friends, family, and co-workers have guessed that baby will be born very, very soon (even if some of my more argumentative co-workers refuse to acknowledge that baby has indeed dropped). I'm hoping to put baby off until AT LEAST Saturday, but Sunday works, and Monday (the 17th, St. Patrick's Day) would be my first choice.

You see, we've got plans: A birthday dinner at Ruth's Chris. Corned beef and cabbage at home. Walking with a couple of friends. Lunch with a friend. Plus, we'd like the weekend, so having the baby on Monday would be the best. Clearly, this is how it'll work out, and it'll be perfect, just as planned.

Right? C'mon...someone has to cross their fingers with me!
