Hospital Packing List

Boiled water: check. Towels: check. Overnight bag: check. Telephone number for buffalo wing delivery place near the hospital: check.

Explanation: So now that the first shower is over and we have quite a bit of baby stuff, it's time to move on to other important details. I know Sarah's due date isn't until February 7, but it's about time that I start preparing for our emergency drive to the hospital. If any of you readers out there have any suggestions, please let me know. This is my list so far:

  • Cell number of our doctor
  • Change of clothes for Sarah
  • Number of buffalo wing delivery place near hospital
  • Baby's "coming home" outfit
  • 2-4 burping cloths for baby
  • 2-4 buffalo wing cloths for father
  • Wipes (for father and daughter)
  • Salt and Pepa CD featuring delivery music ("Push it")
  • Book of baby names for last minute cram session
  • Surgical catcher's mitt for doctor
  • Volleyball sneakers (hey - you never know)
  • 137 Diapers
  • Burpie, Boppy, Boopie, and Binkie (I don't know what they are, but I'm told they're very important)
  • Camera

Bubblegum? I expect chocolate!

First thing to bring : Sarah.

Man, your project planning has a major flaw in it by forgetting her. But management (parents and in-laws) will probably give you a huge bonus for acquiring the funds to by chicken wings for dinner.
