Waiting... [Aug. 13th, 2008|04:51 pm]

Sharon's due Saturday.

Given what happened with Tracy, and Lex's attempted early appearance 10 weeks ago, we really thought we'd probably be parents by now. We've been waiting for it to happen ever since she finished work. We're sort of hitting the doesn't-quite-seem-real bit now, wondering if the baby's going to actually appear or if it'll have all turned out to be some weird mistake and Sharon just happens to have had a lively case of gas.

Oh, we know the bub could easily be a couple of weeks overdue yet, but we're now sitting in the outer limits of the dead-end zone... waiting...

That said, we are both now members of Parent Club. You don't need to have a child yet, you just need to be far enough along so that it seems inevitable. I won't mention the first two rules of Parent Club (so I have plausible deniability), but the third rule is -

3. You can, at any time, strike up a light-hearted conversation with any other parent.

The third rule comes naturally. You see parents dealing with their kid, and you're allowed to say something to them. And if you mention that yours is still on the way, they give gentle encouragement, tell you it's wonderful and that you'll have a great time, then exchange knowing smiles as they communicate telepathically with one another and say, "He has no idea what he's in for..."

Good luck!

We were thinking of you guys last week, cut off from the world in our secluded cottage, wondering if there was news yet...

And still no news... If he arrives after tomorrow, it means he's now late, and therefore takes after Sharon :D

Still not quite caught up on LJ, but went and had a look. You went to Eden! How cool! It's a lovely place, and yes, the story of Old Tom is interesting and odd. Sounds like you both had a wonderful time :D

One year down, a lifetime to go!
