It looks like Mamie retroactively wrote down some of the weeks pregnant found at the top of various pages in the diary, so I don't feel as bad as I did for missing their meaning transcribing earlier entries!

Reading about her anxiety over the costumes for the kid's church play makes me wonder if kids really appreciate the effort put into such things by adults. Of course, costumes are usually very cool to kids so there is that at least.

"A Girl, a Guy, and a Gob" was a 1941 love triangle comedy starring Edmond O'Brian, Lucille Ball, and George Murphy respectively. It was produced by silent film superstar Harold Lloyd for RKO Pictures. "Gob" was slang for a sailor in the United States Navy.
