The Great New Orleans Baby Boom of 2006?

The Fair Family attended a neighborhood birthday party this afternoon. There were about fifteen children at the party--and five of the moms there (including my wife) are "busting out" pregnant. As we approach the first year anniversary of KTMB, it's sort of hard not to notice over the past few months the incredible amount of pregnant women seen around New Orleans. Grocery stores. Drug stores. Restaurants. Everywhere.

ABC News had a story last week on the Katrina Baby Boom and the Times-Picayune did one back in early July.

Repopulassssssssssssshon (in Cajun Man-speak).

In other news, I've got a mouse in my house. Pregnant women don't care for mice in their houses.

Oh Lord ..Let's hope there is not another evacuation this year or sustained power outage. On the other hand it is "grass roots" repopulation

Got mice?

I've seven new kittens growing up, and their moms will teach them the Art of Mouse-catching.
