Sorry for the silence but...

**Picture Removed by Request of my wife**

...I've been busy.


Liam Michael was born at 08:08, on December 08, 2005 after 7 hours of labour. My other two, Emma, 6 and Malcolm, 4, are excited to have their new brother home. I'm sure after a few weeks of crying, that will change but for now I'll enjoy the fun - this morning, Emma dressed as 'Mary' and Malcolm as 'Joseph' and my wife and I got to enjoy a 'live' nativity scene in our living room.

I'll post about the week's events - an NDP tax cut, a 'bus fare' CPC childcare policy and a Liberal 'pander to the fear in Toronto' gun control announcement - in a few days (and probably next weeks events too).

Until then I'm going to enjoy the first few days...

Ted,

Actually, I was making lunch and looked into my living room and saw just that - Emma and Malcolm sitting around Liam, who was asleep in his baby-carrier, with towels and recieving blankets on, pretending to be Mary and Joseph.

I'll post those before Christmas, their priceless...

Just don't spend all of the daycare money on beer and popcorn. ;-)

Might as well, $100 buck a month sure won't pay for $750 per month daycare.

:)

My wife stays home since I make very good money in consulting so I don't need daycare. Donate mine to someone who can use it...
