I am a father, twice!

Postby donoreo » Thu Aug 10, 2006 8:54 pm

My wife gave birth to the girls on Saturday morning. This had been planned for today, actually, but the girls had other plans and my wife's water broke at 3 AM Satuday. They were delivered by c-section.

Emily and Chloe are now home with the sleep deprived parents.

Congratulations to both of you, but mostly to your wife, cos she had all the hard work to do ;-)

Congrats to you both, are they your first? Get this, my second (my son) was born Friday 13th in the back of an ambulance outside Darlington Memorial Hospital and I missed it! I figure he's doomed, I mean, c'mon Friday 13th! Anyway good luck to you dude, two daughters! Sheesh, my one already has me wrapped around her little finger and she's only two :roll: I hope you realise it's a life of servitude (albeit grateful) from now on :mrgreen:

Congrats! Now you've just got to decide which distro to give them, and which programming language they should start learning... :-)

They're girls, Mike. Girls.

Girls don't do computers. :wink:

Congrats, donoreo

I had the same experience 9 years ago, but since they were boys we got to sleep (fairly) well for another 3 years, when their little sister came along.

Enjoy them - it's much easier than having 2 children of different ages (except when you have to help them with their homework ...)

I got 4 hours sleep last night! It was a good night! Twins are hard, no one gets a break, my wife and I are both on for every feeding.
I cannot deny anything that I did not say.

Heh donoreo, as I'm sure you've found out, "they" don't come with instructions.

Pretty sure you and wife will get the hang of it soon enough.

Otherwise, congrats'. Hope all is well.

Congrats! I can't even imagine twins. I've got a 3 year old son and a 7 week old daughter. Three years apart was about fine for me. I can't imagine having 2 within 3 hours (or minutes if your doc was in a hurry.) Good luck and let us know if you need anything! :)

To M-Saunders: Of course, it must be Edubuntu!

To Marrea: Yeah, right. And "math is hard."
