I hope this doesn't take too much time from your busy schedule. The weekly NFL threads wouldn't be the same without your pics of Tony Romo.

Awesome. Having my son was the best thing that ever happened to me. He is amazing, he will surprise you every day. Just don't expect to get much sleep for a while.

I had a really hard time adjusting to kids. Then I gave up on life and the apathy made it easier to deal with. Congrats.

Congrads!!! I had my first in 1998...and here I am now with 3...and they are getting old enough to discover all my classic DVD movies that I built up over the years because of this site. You have no idea how much fun it is to watch a good quality movie with one of or all of your kids, and they tell you after the movie that they loved it.....or hated it...both are fun!!!

Just remember in 16 years your spawn will be doing drugs, stealing shit and hating you with every fiber of their being.

Re: Im gonna be a dad!!!

When I joined in '99, I had a 1 year-old son... he's gonna be 12 next summer and my wife and I have had 4 more kids since then.

I can sympathize.

Congrats!

You know what George Carlin would have said about that, don't you?

That's the exact same thing my dad said to me 19 years ago when my wife and I were expecting our first (and only) child.

Congrats, Raven!

Enjoy and savor every moment (good and bad) you can because - as cornball as it sounds - it all goes by so fast. One minute you're changing a diaper, the next you're dropping them off at college.

It's all really a wonderful experience...
