What Supernanny Taught Me

Yvonne and I like watch Supernanny sometimes while we eat dinner.  For those of you who don’t know what the show is about, the Supernanny (Jo) visits these dysfunctional families almost always with 3 or more kids and teaches them how to solve their problems.  The show actually does teach us some things, but I joking tell Yvonne the thing this show teaches me the most is to get a vasectomy.

We had a June deadline this year to decide if we wanted to have another child.  If we didn’t get pregnant by that deadline, or decided we didn’t want another child by then, I’d get a vasectomy.  Well there’s no need to wait for the deadline, cause Yvonne is pregnant with child number 3.

We’re still early on this one (only 5 weeks along), but if everything goes right he’ll have an estimated date of September 8 of popping out of Yvonne.  And yes, I did say “he.”  Not that I know what the sex is, nor would we have any idea at this point, but I finally broke Yvonne down and got the green light for the name Obadiah.  I think it’s more the point that we used up all of our names that I got the green light.  So if it’s a boy, and Yvonne doesn’t veto the name later on, we’re going to be calling our son Obi-Wong!

Of course if it’s a girl, or we decide later that we don’t want Obi-Wong, we have no ideas for another name.  I think we’ll have to go with another ‘C’ name with 5 letters.  A girl name might be easier to come up with, since a girl can pretty much be called anything and not be made fun of.  However, with a boy, I wouldn’t want my son to have some flowery name.  And I don’t want to call him Chuck.  If possible I would like the initials to be some technology acronym like CSS or XML.  But I can’t think of any tech acronym that ends in W.  Maybe WWW, but that is all.

Even with a vasectomy, I don’t know if that can stop a machine like me.  My boys are too strong to be stopped by a surgical procedure.  Each time that I’ve knocked up Yvonne, I’ve broken through on the first unsafe instance.  There’s no stopping me and my little guys.
