The Dadjoke Awakens: Tanktimus Becomes a Parent


Recommended Posts

So I'm using my Admin/Mod powers to write up this post early in the event Baby Tank also comes early. We are in the window where if the baby comes it's safe to do natural childbirth at the birthing center. The due date is the 8th of September the last day of the previous challenge and the beginning of zero week. Incidentally, if zero week starts early it's because I put the new forums up the day before I normally do in case the baby comes on time. When the baby comes I'll be taking off five weeks from work, so I can probably still post and be on here once we get settled back at home. 

 

Goals:

Cooking: Do it.

Workouts: at least 10.

Stuff to do while not at work:

  • Finish the baby room (she will be sleeping in the pack and play in our room for a couple of months at first so we have time)
  • Get an eye exam and new glasses [contacted Optometrist to request exam]
  • Fix the passenger door on my truck [Currently seeking estimates]
  • Get tires on Truck Rotated and balanced
  • Get Firewood for "winter" (Help a buddy chop down a tree and cut up the wood which we will share)
  • Finish Hanging Decorations
  • Obtain and hang curtains for the house
  • Organize Garage and Shed
  • Like 18

True, except I won't make myself wait for sushi :D 

 

In keeping with the theme of this challenge, I'd like to point out that at the birth I told a Dad joke none of the midwives have heard before. At one point we were in the birthing tub (Eventually gave birth on the bed at the birth center) and part of the head could be felt by the midwife. She said the head was wrinkly, and I said, "Well, she's been in the tub her whole life."

 

I found out later that was a new one to them. I was very proud of myself.

So are the names now going to change to Tank Dad and Tank Mom? Or maybe Dada Tank and Mama Tank?

No, but we can add new characters, TankMIL (Sra. Tanque's Mom), TankFIL(Sra. Tanque's Dad), Grandpa Tank (my dad) and Grandma Tank (My mom).

 

Today is a good day. Baby and Mama are still doing well. We stayed home from church (which is why the forums went up earlier in the day than normal). Our pastor and pastor's wife came over after church and visited for a bit and gushed over the baby :) They also brought food. I cooked yesterday. I marinated chicken thighs (boneless skinless) in avocado oil, balsamic vinegar, garlic powder, salt, pepper, rosemary and parsley for about three hours before putting them into the oven for 20 minutes at 425 degrees. I also steamed some green beans in the bag they came in. There were also garlic mashed potatoes: baby gold potatoes boiled then mashed with butter, milk, salt, pepper and garlic powder.

 

For any newcomers, I don't recommend reading my thread while you are hungry.

No worries, she isn't at the point yet where you have to be silent while she is sleeping.

Mine had a swing that had a seat and a basket (interchangeable) and it was magic.  When the time comes (not for a while) I suggest nipping the tip off the paci.  They cant get suction and it pops right back out.  They give it up on their own.  At least mine did.  They didn’t want to sit there and hold it in.......Does angel baby have a name, and are we allowed to know said name?
