Here's an internet debate that I've actually experienced first hand: As a dad, do you run the risk of seeing your favorite band (Pearl Jam) four weeks before your baby is due?
Went through almost exactly the same debate before my first daughter was born, except it was *two weeks* before the due date. Pearl Jam played the Gorge Amphitheater two weeks before the due date back in 2006. I REALLY considered it. But with a five hour one-way drive, the risk was too great. In the end, I had plenty of time because she was born a week late, but if I had missed the birth of my baby I there would still be a smoldering crater where I once stood.
