I'm sure you'll be fine.

Although, my poor mom probably hasn't had a minute's rest since I came out. She's told me before I'm quite the piece of work.

Beav, it'll probably be a little crazy for a few years, but depending on the temperament of the kid, and the way you raise her, it won't be that bad. You and the Mrs. will do fine.
Thanks. I'm sure we'll be fine, but I'm a HUGE fan of doing nothing. I don't think I'll be able to do that so much anymore.

Well, not unless you decide to make your wife do all the work, in which case that'd be pretty jerky and I don't think that's your style, at all.

I don't know if I can articulate this properly, but I'll give it a shot.

When you see her, it'll be love at first sight. You'll want to do all these things for her. When you get her home, there will be an adjustment curve, but gradually you'll all fall into a rhythm. You'll still have moments of doing nothing, they'll just be more spread apart, and probably fewer at a time.

Does your wife work? How long is she taking off?

I've tried that. She doesn't do as she's told.

She's an art teacher, little kids. She's got 6 weeks off I think. I'm sure everything will be fine, it just hit me that I can't spend an entire Sunday half asleep on a couch nursing a hangover anymore.

That's right, the days of selfishness and complete self-indulgence are pretty much over, except for rare occasions that are to be treasured.

Only 6 weeks? Holy shit. In Canada, we get a year, and that can be taken by one parent, or divided between the two.

A year? Paid? Damn. She technically gets no paid "maternity leave". She is using her collected sick days and vacation time. It's a bullshit system if you ask me.

I have been praying for a sleeper. It should be interesting. I can sleep in a war zone, and my wife has insomnia. Hopefully the kid ends up well balanced.

30 minutes at a blackjack table lost,lost,lost

I thought I'd play again but being there with people that don't gamble I didn't and maybe it was for the best. Never even got to play craps

I did bet on a basketball game, thought I'd lost and turns out I won so I gotta keep that stub till I go back. I've got a bet on the super bowl too

Got just a few hours sleep all weekend and crashed early last night. Had lots of fun though

Yeah, this is what I've been told, and with the way I am Mia's lucky she's made it to eight without any major emotional scars.



Hey Kat.

My friend is having a big party for her hubbies bday on st.patricks day. I won't be able to go but I've offered to help by researching some more pubs to see who could cater it.

That really sucks.

Like VP said - we get a pretty good deal here in Canada w/ mat leave.

Good morning/afternoon, all!
