    Ah, thanx to you too sir...

    I've got a funny feeling you're going to prepare, nurture, and present to this world another well-rounded individual...

    Which we could sure use more of.

    Don't let me, the kiddo, and the rest of the world down...

    No pressure.

    Funny you said that, as I held him in my arms for the first time this morning I whispered to him "this is really tough world you've been born into, I can't promise you much but I can promise you that I'll do my very best to make sure you will make it".

    You? I've been lusting after a Kimber for a while now.
    You might want to get that changed it by a doctor, I don't think it's normal.
    Here's even got 3 good ones for the world!
    That's an awe inspiring speech. More parents need to have that philosophy.

    She's still hanging out in there. Today was the official due date and she blew that. We're both ready for her to get here.

    I think it's obvious that the EDC man, always ready and willing to deal and help with life's little annoyances and problems, appreciate of talent and beauty, looking for the 'long deal' in his life and ready to invest over and over to get to perfection, is the kind of person who will make a great husband and dad. :showoff:

    Congratulations.

    Most folks here aren't the type where ya gotta say, "Hey! Ya know that they know what causes that now, don'tcha!?!" Most EDC'ers should make fair to middlin' parental units.

    So start planning your EDC right now.

    Stocking a diaper bag is always at least a three weekend project.

    Especially picking a color for the bag that goes with what the first few diaper changes look like. For first timers it's not fair if anyone spoils this surprise for you - it's one of life's little pleasures and also a rite of "passage" so no cheating, just let it be a surprise (and for the rest of you, NO SPOILERS!).

    Lessons learned from various after action reports:

    Infants and toddlers should come with a stout but comfortable handle attached to the middle of their backs so they can be carried much like a bowling ball. But backwards and with a sign on 'em that says, "This Side Towards Enemy."

    Remember that organizer bags are better if they're hermetically sealable.

    Be sure to have separate and distinct parts of the bag that can be recognized as "before" and "after" even (especially) in the dark. Or when being used by someone with less than three hours sleep under their belt. Over the past four days.

    Plan your course of action well ahead. Diapers are like grenades. Once the pin is pulled they are no longer your friend.

    It can and will come out of both ends at once. And both bottom holes at once as well. All over your suit. Just before you get to something that looking very professional is very important. There will be no time to change your clothes. Yes, the baby will smile at you. And then do it all over again. And in every way you can take that phrase. And in far greater quantities and far lesser qualities than in your wildest dreams.

    Always remember this - It's not only an ill wind that blows no good.

    At some point in time and when you least expect it you will remember reading this just after you say out loud to yourself, "How the heck did that get in there?" and you will laugh uncontrollably no matter how disgusting your found object is. Or in or on what part of your clothing and/or anatomy you found it. People around you who are not parents will not understand and will move away from you quickly.

    I will now give you the long time traditional Parents All In One Blessing & Curse which always, always, always comes true...

    May you have children just like you.

    Sent from shouting real loud over the Interwebz.
