And now for something completely different

Rather than discuss -again- the ugly nature of politics, I'll mention something that's a great deal more important to me: my wife and I are expecting child #3. It's an exciting time, to be sure, but I'm already preparing for the inevitable comments at his/her high school graduation:

"Oh, isn't that sweet. Your grandfather came to your graduation."

For the record, I consider that a feature, not a bug.

Update: All of you are making be blush. Thanks for your well wishes. Like I did with #2, I'll post a newborn picture as soon after birth as I'm able to take a breath. Considering that I'll be caring for 2 other children, that might be sometime around 2020.

Congrats!

Are children Primo and Secundo looking forward to having a new podling to torment?

Congrats! You're a braver man than I (so far, and possibly in perpetuity).

Congratulations on providing the species with another chance to overcome sheer stupidity! I'm very happy for all of you!

Way to go.
You realize now you have to switch to zone defense.
Like my wife said. "3 is optimal, we'll have a pair and a spare. There is always one screw up that will either get themselves killed or at least can't take care of themselves, and usually there is one that will go to art school and be 35 before they 'find themselves'. With three I can be sure that at least ONE of them will be able to take care of me in my old age... you aren't going to make it to old age so I don't have to worry about you."
Luckily we now have three good kids, but they are still small enough that could change.
Good luck

You're messing up the pattern unless there is something Tiff hasn't told us yet :)

I'm so happy for you. Post the sonogram when you get it.

Andrea,

When did you start drifting around these parts?
