The wonders of nature

Posted on Sunday, April 25, 2010 in Family

A guest post by Grandad

I have never written a guest post before, there has to be a first time for everything.

There again, K8 didn’t ask me to write it, so it’s not exactly a guest post – more of a hi-jack post?

I was woken in the early hours of this morning by my phone beeping at me.  It was a message, but it was one of those sound file things, not a text message.  I played the sound and it was of a very new baby crying.

Only half an hour old and the baby is being subjected to the Interweb and mobile phones!

Our K8 is now the mammy of a bonny bouncing 8lb 3oz baby boy.

Mother and baby are fine, despite their refusing her any sort of pain killer.  Heh!  Serves her right.

I spoke to her a short while ago.  She is rearin’ to go home already.  I asked her what the baby looked like [a stupid question – we all know that all babies look exactly the same].

“He looks like his daddy, so his daddy won’t eat him” says she.

There’s logic there, and she does know TAT better than I do.

Ain’t nature wonderful?

    Great news K8. Congratulations. Doesn’t seem like 9 months since you… oh yeah, probably six months since you announced it.

  28. K8 says:

    Aw shucks lads, thanks a million :) Please excuse any future psychedellic postings… I must celebrate the ability to abuse my body again!

    Especial thanks to ma Daddyo for posting the news, I’d left my brain somewhere in the corridors of that hospital and they’ve only just posted it back to me so I was absolutely useless ’till now.
