    Congratulations man! Just don't name the kid Dan O'Brien Footstool.
    Darth Footstool. But only if it's a girl.

    Ken Griffey Junior Footstool if it's a boy.

    Re: Little Footstool on the way

    Johnny, one thing I forgot to mention earlier: Mama Footstool should prepare herself to hear the same questions over and over throughout the pregnancy and beyond. She will get sick of hearing them. People are only trying to be nice, show interest, and make conversation, but they don't realize that the questions they are asking are the same one's she has answered 1,001 times in the past week alone. My wife and I joked that we should prepare a little card with a FAQ on it and just hand them out at the beginning of every conversation. Among the more popular ones that she should prepare herself for:

    When are you due?
    Do you know if it's a boy or girl?
    Have you been sick much?
    Are you excited?
    Are you scared?
    What does Johnny think?

    Since we had a two-year-old at the time of the birth of our second baby last fall, we even got the question "What does her brother think?" We were like "We don't know. He's two years old! He hasn't discussed it with us!" We didn't actually say that, but we thought it. How do you answer a question inquiring as to what a two-year-old thinks?

    After the baby is born, prepare answers for:

    Are you going to have any more?
    Does the baby sleep much?

    Like I said, people are just being nice, so you remain patient, smile, and answer the questions over and over. At least people care, I guess.

    Thanks, macro. We're already hearing a lot of those questions.

    Great names..

    We agreed to name one of our sons Luke, but I just couldn't get the wife to agree to make his middle name "Skywalker".
    Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2010-2014!

    My Grandfather always suggests to all of us Grandkids, that Ansloem is an underused name!

    Congrats Johnny, My youngest is nine months, and is almost mobile. Look out pots and pans.
    The Sox traded Bullfrog the only player they've got for Shottenhoffen. Four-eyes Shottenhoffen a utility infielder. They've got a whole team of utility infielders.

    Re: Little Footstool on the way

    Gee, that was really fun, gonelong. Later tonight perhaps I can remove my eyelids with a butter knife and stab my eyeballs with seafood forks in search of that same kind of fuzzy feeling that list of questions just gave me.

    And congrats, Footstools.
    There is no such thing as a pitching prospect.

    Ahhh, small talk! When you're a youngster, you have the twice-a-year fielding of these questions:

    Are you glad school's out?
    Are you ready for school to start?
    What grade will you be in?
