Well – my wife and I are having a baby! I’m gonna be offline for the next couple of days so I may not get to your emails right away. The posting schedule will also be a bit lighter than usual today and tomorrow but we’ll be back to normal (if a bit groggy with more than usual spelling and grammar errors) next week! Thanks everyone.

  • Congrats!

  • Phil

    That’s awesome! Mazel!!

      • I’m due in two months and even I agree. So much of your life becomes babycentric already that non-baby outlets are a necessity.

      • BitterElitist


  • Much joy to you and your family! It’s a great time of life.

    Congrats, PoP!

  • MtP Gal

    Congrats! It’s better than you can even imagine. Like others have posted, I suppose s/he will need a name. The Duke/Duchess of Bloomingdale? Lots of flooding/sewage issues there, so it seems appropriate. :)
