Well, its official

DW is pregnant with kiddo #2. Due date is June 17, right smack between our daughter and DW. I (jokingly) told DW that we'll just have one birthday party on June 1st every year.

I'm excited and happy about it, but also very, very mindful of the responsibility. I have also been a little taken aback by some of my friends and relatives asking about a #3 or #4 (!) when I told them about #2. We are undecided about 2 or 3, but I will need to mull over my reaction to people asking about more.

Well all right. Since my DH and I didn't have children, I would be pleased to have you or Lawrence in charge of our replacements. So feel free to have a couple more if you want.

Great! Does this include an offer of college tuition?

Nice announcement. As much as Retire Early is a nice idea it pales in comparison to the arrival of new family.

yakers, whose first grandchild arrived April 05.

Congratulations on brewing up another one. Sure you don't want to go for a six-pack?

Many congratulations! *I wish your DW a stress-free and trouble-free pregnancy. *Think happy thoughts.

One of our kids had a due date of June 17 - funny how you remember that date even when the actual birthday is different. *

Congratulations, Brewer & Mrs!

As Martha said, you may officially have my allotment of population replacement as well - that will get you up to 6. As far as college, uh.... nope.

good job. In the spirit of the 16-year old wanting to retire early living in his folk's basement, are you going to be reading financial books to the baby in the womb, so he/she can FIRE when they are born.

I heard teaching a baby sign language will help the baby learn to communicate more effectively now and later in life.

Congrats! We just started talking about when we want another, but I think we'll wait another year. Now you understand we expect you to have at least six to keep the ss ponzi scheme going, right?

Kids...they rule.
