Engine Problems

Another doctor’s appointment and all good news.   Caitlynne is constantly calling me a ball of stress.  And I am.  We can be sitting in traffic with plenty of time to get where we are going and I’ll be stressed and frustrated.  I can’t help it.  A big part of it is uncertainty of what’s to come.  I hate not knowing if everything is going to work.  She’s the opposite.  Her favorite saying is “If it’s meant to happen, then it will.”  That’s why we work so well together.  I keep us from getting evicted and having the electric paid off by paying bills right away, and she keeps me from having a heart attack at 27 over something not worth fretting about.  


 (I don't know)

 Of course, one thing I’m really worried about all of the time is Caitlynne's and the baby’s health.  I constantly have to remind myself to not think of all of the things that can go wrong, but to think about how many people go through pregnancy and labor without having any complications.  So, the other day I was thinking to myself, I wish there was a way to catch something before it happens.  This applies to after the baby is born as well.  I was in Wal-Mart the other day and this kid was screaming his head off.  I could hear it from across the store, literally.  When I got to the front to checkout, there he was still screaming and his dad was trying to calm him down.  I know that there are ways to prevent that, but I was sitting there thinking “that could be me.”  

Why don’t humans have one of these?  They tell you when your car has something wrong with it before you even feel the symptons.  Why doesn’t Caitlynne have one on her head?  It would be so nice to have one on the baby’s head so before it starts throwing a fit in Wal-Mart at age two, the light can pop on and I can take the necessary steps.  You can see below where this could fit into the equation.

So you don't get to here.

 This is going to be a bumpy ride...


  1. I just love this! Too funny... And so true!!

  2. Hi Caitlynne and Jared,

    This is a GREAT blog! You two are sweet and funny. :) I wish you nothing but the very best for the 3 of you! I'll pray that all goes very well. Your baby is going to be well loved, and that's the most important thing of all.
