Great News for 2010


Consider this:

'All fathers are intimidating. They’re intimidating because they are fathers. Once a man has children, for the rest of his life, his attitude is, "To hell with the world, I can make my own people. I’ll eat whatever I want, I’ll wear whatever I want, and I’ll create whoever I want."'

Jerry Seinfeld


I've always liked that quote. Probably because it rings so true to me.

Michelle, my most excellent wife, is fourteen weeks pregnant. The latest addition to the Brennan household (#3) is due to arrive in July 2010 and we're absolutely delighted. Anything else that happens this year is just gravy.

Just thought you might like to know...

I can see that the development of the Brennan empire is in full swing here. That Seinfeld quote does tend to leave your wife a bit out of the equation, though. I'm thinking she'll have something to do with the project.

Congratulations to both of you.

Comhghairdeas, Gerard.

Garbhan said...

So busy spelling 'Comhghairdeas' right I got my own name wrong. Anyway, well done Gerard.

seana said...

That's pretty funny, Garbhan. Although I have to admit that I type my own name wrong probably more frequently than any other word, and always wonder why that is.

Tony Bailie said...

Congrats Gerard. Best to Michelle.

Declan Burke said...

You fool! You've suckered yourself into believing a third will be as perfect as the first two!! A schoolboy error, Gerard. I expected more, sir ...

Many congrats, squire.

Cheers,

Dec

Such good news.

Here's wishing all of you every happiness for 2010.

Seems right to me. A daughter who takes after the mother, a son who takes after the father, and another son who takes after the father's evil split personality.
Everyone is happy!
