Once in a Blue Moon

"Once in a blue moon" means very rarely, because it’s unusual that a full moon will occur twice in one calendar month. So whenever two full moons do occur in the same month you call the second one a "blue moon". Turns out that this May we'll have two full moons—one on May 2nd and the second on May 31st.

Our little one is due to make his or her entrance into the world on or around June 11th. I think it would be really cool if the baby could speed things up and come along on May 31st. Wow, a blue moon baby. Seems very “when the moon is in the 7th house, and Jupiter aligns with Mars” don’t you think? Not sure I'd like the initials our kid would have if we called him Blue Moon though. BM. Hmmm....

Susanne probably likes this idea better than my other brilliant idea though, which is to have the baby wait until July 7th to make an appearance. 07/07/07. Now that’s a cool birthday huh? We’d have to name the baby Septima or Septimo though right? ;-) -Monica
