Loss of the hair but gained a son.

I end up focusing on putting things on twitter that I forget that I also have this website...and for the three people that actually visit it, once every five years, maybe I should add something. 

So it has been a busy 6+ months. Just before the summer holidays my wife and I were busy preparing for the arrival of our son; I was also in preparation mode for an interview. Studying had been done, had gone to Starbucks the day before to do some last minute cramming...and then I went to bed. Now the next part is slightly blurry, the day of the big interview arrived but instead of getting a good sleep my wife wakes me from my slumber (around 4am) with the news (4 weeks early) THE BABY IS COMING.

Okay so as most of you know, it's not one of those frantic motions like you see in the movies. We had to wake our daughter, and take her around to my mother's house and once that was all done, we were on our way to the hospital. 

So we waited for the examination. My wife has such a high tolerance for pain as a result of some medical stuff and as such wasn't really presenting as some in labour. Very sceptically, she was examined and then there was the "oh" moment. Baby was coming and he was coming now! Now we already knew that he was lying in the wrong position, and with him being ready to jump into the world in such a hurry, it wasn't possible to attempt to turn him. So, we were rushed to the operating theatre and before we knew it, we were welcoming our son into the world. Needless to say, I didn't do the interview that day, instead a gained something so much better. 

Happy reading folks,
