I need your help on one of the items on my to-do list. (No, it's not the one about covering the furniture in plastic wrap.) The pregnancy books suggest that I load my iPod with music to listen to in the delivery room. While I have trouble picturing myself rocking out during labor, I recognize my inexperience and am willing to try anything. Well, almost anything.
I opened my iTunes this morning and started listening to potential songs to include on Bean's mix. It quickly became clear that my emotions would render this task nearly impossible. A combination of hormones in flux and the thought of finally meeting our little man after 2 years (and 9 months) was too much. While there certainly is an emotional undertone to the song "Proud Mary," it was probably overreacting when I burst into tears as Tina Turner explained that she and Ike would do the first part of the song nice and easy.
So I added a poll to my blog, you'll see it in the right-hand column. Please vote on a theme and help me put together a mix for D-Day. You'll notice "Proud Mary" isn't on the list.
