Guess what?!?!

It's TRUE!! The eggplant parmigiana tale really works. Of course, I already knew that. We took pregnant neighbor, pregnant neighbor husband and pregnant neighbor 3 year old to Scalini's on Sunday for the eggplant parmigiana (if you haven't heard about the infamous legend at my dad's restaurant and the Eggplant babies look HERE to get with the program). So, Sunday she ate half and then Monday she ate the other half. So, as the legend goes, she should have gone into labor within 48 hours of finishing it on Monday.

We got a call about 1:00 this AM that her water had broken so we went over there to sleep and get said 3 year old all ready and off to school later that morning. So, it worked!! Baby Annabelle is here!! Just one day shy of my birthday darnit! I called my son and he is going to pick up a little pink Scalini's t-shirt for baby Annabelle and bring it with him tomorrow when he comes for my birthday. You KNOW you will be seeing pictures of that soon!

Don't forget - all enteries for the contest must be in by midnight tonight! Good luck!

Whoa baby! Tell them CONGRATS! My DH's cousin had a baby on my bday last year, so I'll never be able to forget!

That's your dad's restaurant? I'm forever sending people to that website for the recipe to get the labor started. Don't know how many people have tried it, but I tell everyone! LOL

That's cute. My hubby's 100% Italian mom said it was pepperoni pizza and ride in the car that insured labor. lol.

Congrats to your neighbor. More kids to love is always a good thing.

I had forgotten all about the eggplant thing until you mentioned it. I remember hearing about it years ago. Wicked cool.
