Congratulations to the three of you. I take it they forgot to give you the owner's handbook when you left the hospital  ::) They always seem to do that. ;)


We're still here - not holding my breath on that score!  Thanks mate. :)

As I indicated in another place, congratulations Matt. It's always great to bring wee lassies into the world ::)

The good news is that Dad's are generally superfluous for the first 3 months, except to be shouted at by Mum and any other significant females around.......but one of the best feelings is to get the wean in the pram and take her for a walk, genuinely a wonderful moment....especially if you head to the pub 8)

May I also say that one kid is a breeze, a doddle, a piece of proverbial piss.....two is a fecking nightmare ;D

Good luck, enjoy every moment, even the sleepless nights, it's part of a great journey.....honestly

No. One's a fecking nightmare, but I was once told by a bloke in Tesco  that having 8 kids is no different to having one...

I have to say both of my kids births were fecking horrendous.  My Daughter's (the second one) was eerily similar to that scene is Alien with John Hurt.


Isaac was a week late and showed no sign of coming out, he had to b pulled out. A trait he has stuck with for the next, nearly, 13 years.
Apparently Rachel was born in the waiting room, she seemingly couldn't wait, too impulsive. A trait she has stuck with for the next 7 years.
The lenses inside of me that paint the world black. The pools of poison, the scarlet mist, that spill over into rage.

Not being a father myselt I can only speculate at the joy (and trepidation!) you must be feeling. Wish you and the family all the best - congrats!

Load of bollocks Simmers. You need 2 shopping trolley's when you've got at least 3 kids.

Thanks mate - it's all finally caught up with this 40-something, somehow.  Up to recently I had no great desire to have children.  But here I am, and here she is.  And everything is instantly turned on its head and all the cliches are true!  And I don't mind one bit. 

Old me good, new me better. :)
