    Ha, that's the hurry-up-and-wait process. But you're supposed to be worrying! You can't have fun or anything like that. ;)

    Had a healthy baby boy last night. Lil Marceror 3 is absolutely awesome!

    Mom is doing well too. Dad is as useless and in the way as he ever was! :p

    Thanks again for the many well wishes. :happy:

    Very nice. Now, however, you are outnumbered. In a couple of years, what are you going to do when the three of them take off in three different directions and there's only you and your wife? :p

    They are all about 4 years apart from one another. My oldest will be 8 in July and is actually at the age where he starting to be able to help us out with our middle child here and there. The middle child will be 4 soon, and is pretty good at listening to instructions. In theory, those 2 should be even better behaved by the time our newest arrival is able to get around. If that doesn't work, I can always put them on leashes. If that doesn't work I can always put them in cages. :D

    I'm not saying 3 is going to be easy. In fact, I'm certain it will not be, but I'm sure we'll figure it out. The vasectomy I got a week and a half ago is to help ensure that we never arrive at 4! That would throw me right over the edge, and make no mistake.

    @Chandos - I guess this is technically more of a Sorcerous Sundries type topic, but I didn't really want to create a whole new topic up there about this.

    Congrats, Marceror! All the best to you, Mrs. Marceror, and the little marcerorites :) . You did take some drastic measures, though...

    Anyway, perhaps the oldest kid will be a lot of help eventually. That reminds me of the story of a US couple living in Japan I used to game via Wave with - they had 5 daughters, with a sixth along the way... she must have been born already. The mom once recounted the story of how some plumber arrived at their place to fix the plumbing and was dumbfounded by all the kids there - he had to ask if all of them were hers :) .

    Ashley has chicken pox. He's fine, thinks it's really funny that he has spots. He's not itchy or unwell so far (touch wood!) so it's not too bad.
    Got so many parents from his school asking if they can bring their kids round to catch it!

    Don't do it! That'll set them up for shingles later in life which depending on which nerves are affected can cause Bell's Palsy

    Oh yes, shingles. Fun. Sound advice, BTA.

    Anyway, with the help of my ever so versatile swiss army knife I just valiantly saved the life of a lady colleague after she broke a nail. Naturally, the urbanite version of the knife includes a nail file.

    99% of kids in England get chicken pox at some stage. They are contagious up to 5 days before the spots appear so you can't really tell. It's much better for them to get it at a young age as it's not as severe. Rob didn't get it until he was 16 and was really ill. Plus there's less likelyhood of complications when they're younger.
    I was talking to a parent at the school who is a GP and she said that (off the record) it is much more sensible to try and get your child to catch it at 3 than it is to avoid it. My neighbour who's a GP said the same thing too...and the doctor who diagnosed it! So, no offence BTA but I think I'll ignore you :D

    A funny quote from Stephen Colbert I can't help but share. In referring to being more sensitive to people with different abilities, he made the following impromptu PSA:

    "kids, don't use the "R" word. It's totally gay!"

    There are Varicella vaccines these days, so there is no point in intentionally exposing a child to the disease in this day and age. Whoever you've been talking to is still in the dark ages. ;)

    We don't use the vaccine over here unless you work with people who are vulnerable. Therefore it's better to get the virus at a young age as the chances are you're going to get it at some point and getting it when you're older causes far too many complications
