Ok, followers and readers (the few of you I know there are), here's the official announcement, in this location anyway, of the long-held top-secret news.
With an estimated arrival date of late May, my partner and I are expecting a kid.
Said child is male, is apparently in great shape so far, and kicks like a herd of running horses.
This, among other things, explains--or should explain--comments I have made about inabilities to get to summer workshops and an anonymous "increase in stress" I've been referring to since about October.
Astrologically speaking, he's due to be a Gemini, but if he comes at all early, he'll be a Taurus (like me).
My partner and I are both, ancestrally, northern Europeans. Together, with my English/Irish/Swedish and her Scottish/Euro mix, we're basically the UK with mutt elements from Western Europe. We expect a curly-haired blondish redhead with blue eyes. Of course, I'm adopted, so who knows, there may be suprising genes to be had.
Practice? Who can tell. Although, however, if Jason and Tara can maintain practices with a now 4-year-old, I'm sure I can do this as well.
It should be one heck of a summer.
