Lynne Spears’ parenting book put on hold

Lynne Spears’ book about raising her famous daughters is going to sit on the back-burner for a while thanks to the recent announcement of 16-year-old Jamie Lynn’s pregnancy. The book was to focus on Lynne’s life bringing up two high-profile children despite a humble background in Louisiana, according to People:

“The book is delayed indefinitely. It’s delayed, not cancelled,” says a spokeswoman for Thomas Nelson, which publishes inspirational books and Bibles.

Delayed indefinitely (adj.): Describes a project that will never see the light of day (i.e. cancelled) due to unforeseen, yet kind of predictable, circumstances such as 1. teenage pregnancy. 2. grandchild left overnight at a petting zoo. 3. perpetual vaginal flashing by one’s offspring.
