Hear, hear!

Rose Marshack, our beloved punk rock bassist turned educator and mother will be tracking her latest arrival with Twitter and allowing Smile Politely to follow along! With help from a strange little iPhone application called Labor Mate, she'll even be able to better gauge when the little booger is ready to enter the world.

According to babycentercommunity.com, "it is only .99 cents and it is super simple to use. It will track duration and frequency, and even average them for you. There is also an e-mail feature so you can e-mail your contraction log to yourself, your midwife, curious family members."

Stay tuned!
