Can you hear me now?

Sorry for my silence. Apparently, l@w school really is a full time affair. Sheesh, what a bother.

After reading some info on the development of Fetus (nicknamed Curry), I found that her ears have developed enough so that she is hearing a lot of what I hear in a day, even if its significantly muffled. I spent a little time thinking about what it is she hears during an average day. The list looks something like this:
  • long boring lectures about family l@w, education l@w, and social security
  • my snoring during aforementioned lectures
  • litigants screaming at each other during so-called negotiation conferences (I am externing for a county judge)
  • loud thumps as litigants' attorneys bang their heads against the wall during aforementioned conferences
  • a whole lot of crunching, gurgling, slurping and other sounds originating from the beginning to the end of my digestive system
  • my voice singing to the many lively songs of the Violent Femmes
  • many, many episodes of The Simpsons
It will be a miracle if after hearing all of this, Curry wants to come out and live with us at all.

Hey, just noticed your ticker sweetie. Happy Viability Day!

Silly school...don't they know you have blogging to do? haha

I'm glad to hear that things are going well, and hey, burping and gurgling are better than swearing and yelling, right? And a good violent femmes song just means that you are indoctrinating Curry into good music now. Trust me, you don't want this kid to like teeny-bopper pop.

Julia said...

Curry is cute.
As for the sounds. Good music and early exposure to dumb people? Sounds like excellent life skills lessons.

Electronic Goose said...

I wonder all this too! Great list, made me laugh. Curry, what an adorable little Fetus-girl! :)

Nadine said...

Well, maybe the lectures help little Curry nap too.

GREAT! so glad to hear you've been too busy for us (as opposed to something more sinister).

As for the little oe not wanting out, trust me, after she's been out for a while you'll be wishing she was back in, they are so much easier to take care of that way ;).

Take it easy.

I'm so glad to hear everything is going alright! Your silence had me a little worried.

You sound like you are doing really well! Yay! I'm imagining that Curry might end up being a skilled negotiator after hearing all the law talk...you may be in trouble!

I'm so jealous, a girl!!!

That was hysterical!

I am excited that your pregnancy is progressing so well. Grad school has a way of disrespecting our other responsibilities. It's not right but it happens. :-)

XOXO

Anns said...

I'm curious about her nickname - something to do with a craving I suspect?

I love the Femmes and am all too often also belting out their tunes!

Veronika said...

Congratulations to all of you!

Glad to hear things are going well. I think about the things mine is hearing too. It's a miracle they aren't all jacked up when they come out.

Cibele said...
