Extra, extra, read all about it

My wife recently had a dream. In it, she says that we ended up having a little girl, and that as she got older, she decided she wanted to be a journalist. In the dream, she says this caused an incredible rift between the daughter and myself, as the many years in journalism professionally madeContinue reading “Extra, extra, read all about it”

Go slowly sands of time…

Time is moving by at an alarming rate. I am unable to fathom the speed with which the past nine months have flown by. It seems like only a week or so ago that it was Halloween night and we sat there, slightly late for our rehearsal of “Arsenic and Old Lace” at a localContinue reading “Go slowly sands of time…”

Woot Woot!

I have an obsession with the website, shirt.woot For those of you not in the know, shirt.woot is a website that allows artists to submit designs for a t-shirt, and web users vote on their favorites. Each week tends to revolve around a different theme, although you’ll find the occasional random design. The winning entriesContinue reading “Woot Woot!”

Storytime with the Justice Society

Last night I read to our unborn child. This is nothing new. For months, I would randomly grab a book from the small collection we’ve amassed since we found out we’re expecting and read directly to Meg’s stomach. On this occasion, though, it wasn’t “Puss in Boots” or “Mr Brown Can Moo, Can You?” Instead,Continue reading “Storytime with the Justice Society”

We just completed our childbirth class, and in it we’ve come across aContinue reading “Social Butterfly”

Breastfeeding class

One of the things about the hospital that we’re registered at to have the baby is the multitude of “extra” educational offerings they provide. For the past six weeks or so, my wife, Meg, and I have been attending Childbirth Classes at the hospital one night a week, where we’ve learned all about the processContinue reading “Breastfeeding class”

What’s in a name?

For being at 34 weeks into this pregnancy, finding possible names has only recently come to the forefront of our activities. First off, I should mention we are not finding out the sex of our child ahead of time, so that automatically means any list of names was immediately two lists – one for boysContinue reading “What’s in a name?”

Eight Months

About a month to go. Seriously? As I type that first sentence, I just can’t help but ask myself, has 34 weeks really gone by that quickly? Why has it taken me this long to finally sit down and put my thoughts to page? My wife and mother in law suggested writing about the processContinue reading “Eight Months”
