    It is an exciting time. But god I hope we make it to the labour ward before drop time.
    I've seen so much and done so much. But hell knows I don't want to deliver. *Shakes nervously*

    Hey delivering a baby is terrifying business!

    I won't go into detail though cause it may scare poor Raven lol my cousin delivered her last in her bathroom and her son was helping his daddy with it and he said the baby came out her bum lol was hilarious.

    You will get there in time Raven! I am so darn excited for you and your wife. I hoep she has an easy labour though.

    So exciting :D

    I only wish it were as simple as that.

    *Moves on swiftly*


    New life scares me but its also the most joyous time any man can imagine. Once you hold you're new child for the very first time, well your eyes fill with tears and the type you can't avoid shedding. :) :) ;) :)

    My ex delivered both of mine by Caesarian, and I was able to be there both times. I'm not squeamish about medical procedures, but even if I had been, nothing would have overpowered the joy of seeing them enter the larger world. :D

    It goes beyond words. I don't think any writer could capture it in a way that someone who has never experienced it could fully comprehend.

    Okay, so, I just looked up some live birth videos on YouTube (don't ask me why, I was just curious). And seriously, most disgusting thing ever. I am never having children.

    Congrats on yours though, Raven. Maybe you won't find it so gross, since it's yours and all.

    Frankly, children scare the hell out of me. It's not just the birth part. It's the whole being in charge of another life part. Like, if that kid ****s up in life, it's my fault. I don't want that responsibility.

    Also, all the things I want to accomplish in life, I can't do those things if I have a kid. And I'm not prepared to put my life on hold for anyone. Maybe that's selfish. But really, I'm content in telling myself that at least I won't be contributing to the overpopulation problem.

    My Younger Sister Is a little like that. She dances well she's now training to become a dance teacher.

    I once thought like that. But I still had a very good career in the army. And my Wife well she has a good career too. And we're onto our fourth child. Proberly the last too.

    Each person is very different.

    But Kids scare the hell out of me too. And I've been a father for 9 years now.
