Enter...Zygote...Woah...

Okay. That's it. I can't take not telling you. I HAVE to tell someone, because we're kind of keeping it on the DL* in real life in case something goes wrong. But, I figure if something goes wrong, I'll most likely ruminate about it here, so I'm letting the cat out of the bag. Besides, if I don't tell someone, I'm going to fucking BURST!

I'm having trouble finding the words to express what I want to say, so I've drawn a picture. Don't laugh.



Yeah, shut up. I know my Paint Shop skillz suck. Anyone who's been around for a while would know that I am no Paint Shop pro. Anyway, Zube Boy done gone and got me all knocked up and shit. And, I swear, goddess willing all goes well, this little parasitic bugger is gonna be a literary genius or something. 'Cause I got nothing. In addition to draining me of all of my expendable energy, it would seem it is also tapping into my Creativity Reserve. That is my only conclusion, after spending night after night in front of el compudador stupefied as to what to rant or rave about. Why, just a couple of weeks ago, the words couldn't flow fast enough.

So, there you have it. Hee.

And, little Zinnia has been home for two days now. Thanks for all of the suggestions of cool ass 'Z' girl names. Upon her rather traumatic arrival to the Zube household, and Zoey's rude spitting and frothing at the mouth, poor little Zinnia hunkered down behind a couch. In a vain attempt to coax her out, I cooed the first thing that leapt to my tongue, and Zinnia was it. She is now all named and whatnot.

Well, the Zube's are all happy and shit round these parts. Hope things are equally as blissful in your neck of the woods!

*'down low' for those of you who don't have younger sibs that keep you in the know on all the hip phrases

EDITED TO ADD...PaintingChef is totally my pregnancy twin. And she said we're gonna be pregnant super heroes with capes. I love her.

CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!!!!

You and PaintingChef are making me feel all left out and shit. I feel so hormonally challenged right now. I feel the need to incubate, to be fruitful and multiply...

It passed. Whew!

Zygote couldn't have picked a better set of parents, I'm sure.

And Zinnia is a BEAUTIFUL name!

Chickie said...

I'm sure your creativity will come back soon. But if it doesn't, cute baby pictures will fill the void.

Congratulations!

PaintingChef said...

I KNEW you'd crack!! Oh my UPPERCASE GOD I'm so happy to have someone else to go through this with!!! Zygote and Project Fetus. Maybe one day they'll be in group therapy together...

Doggie Extraordinaire's Mom said...

Zygote Zube! Excellent! Congratulations!

I'm trying to imagine Teenage PaintingChef and Teenage Zube leaving foul-mouthed, brilliant comments on one another's blogs, complaining about their parents and the wildly popular blogs their moms still have. (You know, with their book deals and all...)

Do we get to call you guys Zube Mom and Zube Dad now?

I'm so happy for you!

zazzafooky said...

OH MY GOD CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!!!!!!!!! That is just way too fucking cool!!! I am so happy for you guys!!! Best wishes for a fabulous nine-month-orgy-of-gluttony. Hey, if you can't drink, at least you can eat cookies.

Amy said...

CONGRATULATIONS!!!! Sorry, I just felt bold caps were SO called for here! I had a feeling the way some of your posts have gone recently!

So, when do we get to here all the nitty-gritty details, like, due date, how you found out, how you broke the news to Zube Boy, etc. etc. ???

Congrats, congrats, congrats!

5, 4, 3, 2, 1 - TAKEOFF

You're in for the roller coaster ride of your life. Go ahead and start practicing the following:

Because I told you so.

Didn't I tell you to . . .

What were you thinking when . . .

Come here and give me a hug.

Honey, I think the kid's asleep. You've 20 minutes. That should be plenty of time to . . .

Honestly, though, it is a roller coaster ride and there isn't a theme park in the world that can equal the ray of sunshine that we call 'Lil Cowgirl. I'd still be wearing the nursing gown from the delivery room with her foot print on it if I could. Enjoy!!!

I knew you'd be able to use Zygote somewhere.

Latin Lover said...

Congratulations!!

It's going to be awesome having a Zube Baby!

And Way to go Zube Boy!!!

Courtney said...

I'm so happy for you guys! Congrats! And ditto about details. Due date? How'd you tell him?

Zube Girl said...

Thank you all!

Bonanza- Oh, but do not underestimate your power as a source of parenting genius! PaintingChef and I need someone to look to for tips such, a swim in the pool = bath. :)

Chickie- Thanks! I hope the creativity loss is temporary. Time will tell.

PaintingChef- Yep. I caved. I just couldn't keep it to myself! I LOVE the image of our kids in group therapy together. Hee. They'll just be there because they'll be like, "Damn, our Moms are so fucking cool, we can't compare."

CC- Thank ya!

Jess- Hee, it is wonderful news. Thanks!

Anna- Gracias!

Rob- SUCH happy days! I can't wait to start warping the little one's mind. :)

Kjersten- Thanks! I'm beaming and having trouble hiding it around people I don't know. I can't wait to tell the world.

Phil- Now I'm singing in my head, "...even stupid people are breeding...and I don't even own a tv." I don't even know who sings that. Thanks! ;)

LE- You have a gift for giving me the best imagery ever. And, a book! Such dreams. I wish.

TJ- I hope it will be fun to experience, too, though I could do without the All Day Sickness. Mornings my ass. :-)

T~ Thank you for the well wishes on the pregnancy. I'm sending myself some good vibes, which are equal to prayers in my agnostic mind!

Mother Goosemous- I am SO going to shock the hell out of my family when I go to a wedding in October and don't drink! They're going to think I've done lost it. Actually, I think they'll probably know by then.

Amy- Oh, nitty gritty details to come, for sure. :-) Thanks!

Jules- Thank you. :)

Dutch Oven- Oh, I look to you and Bonanza for guidance! :) I'm sure it will be one hell of an adventure.

Latin Lover- Yep, even with crutches, Zube Boy's fish can swim! ;-) Thanks!

Bonanza Jellybean said...

I'm not sure you want us for guidance. I just told Lil Cowgirl about how we used to snort Pixy Sticks in elementary school...

malfouka said...

Anduin said...

Hip Hip Hooray! Way to go you two. Mucho congrats.

Al said...

SWEET! Congrats to you guys!

Tell Zube boy he can call me if he needs any tips on how to deal with a pregnant girl in the house. I've been through it twice, got my ass kicked for doing it wrong...twice. But will gladly pass on the tribal knowledge so he won't get an ass beating for saying the wrong thing.

Ghost Blogger said...

Congrats on the new little Zube to be :)

Rick said...

congrats, zube! life as you know it will never be the same - but in a good way :)

Moxie said...

Congratulations!

Pregnancy alone should provide you with great (and humourous) blogging material! lol

OldGuy said...

Well, I'll be damned, don't that beat all !

Congratulations to both of you !

And yeah, if I remember my wife's first pregnancy (and I do) you'll have all sorts of stuff to blog about !
