Maybe I'm just a weenie then, because I get all the UR stuff, plus puking. Killer gag reflex, I guess.
Get vax'd? What, and give up the chance to stay home, watch Daytime TV, drink ginger ale and be waited on hand and foot for three days? No thanks!
Sure, you puke a lot... but after this pregnancy I'm QUITE used to that! I get the flu almost every year and it's never killed me.
My son's a month old, and we're reading "The Fellowship of the Ring".
Hey, it's not like he's comprehending it, or going to remember, so it might as well be something I like to hear, right? ^_^
When he's a little older, 3 or 4, and ready to start learning how to read, I'm hoping to teach him with The Hobbit, like my daddy taught me. I'm kinda proud of the fact that at 4 years old I could read such words as "Khazad-Dum" and the like. My daddy was awesome.

That's EXCELLENT!! You should TOTALLY do that.
I don't think we're going to do halloween this year, since Ian's only going to be 2 months old... but NEXT year, my dachshund is going as a chili dog, and my son will either be a milkshake or a side of fries. We don't eat fast food, we just play it at Halloween.
I got this in an email from my midwife. This is bad. WAY bad.
Just one more government step being made to order us to have a birth THEY want, rather than one WE want! They need to be stopped.

33 IS a young adult for a Hobbit. Just the way they reckon things, and how they grow and age, 33 is considered about equivalent to our 18 or 21 - it's their adulthood.
He actually doesn't even start the journey until he's 50!

I'm right there with you, OP!
My son's name is Ian Bradley. My second son's name will be Arthur Myron. *shrug* Bradley is my husband's favourite uncle. Arthur is his grandfather's middle name. Sure, no one's going to swing from the chandeliers raving about how unique and special the kids' names are, but they'll also never have to know what it's like to go through school as "Alyson-with-a-'Y'".

Ooh, yay! I wanna play!
I've already read Fellowship this year, but one more time upon the hundreds can't hurt.
Oh, 18 years of obsession... now time to pass it on to MY little one. My father started me on The Hobbit when I was four years old... it can't hurt to read Fellowship to my one month old, right? ::
