Oops!...I Did It Again

No, I didn't marry Kevin Federline, but I may have to rename this blog Poker, Pique, and Extra Parenthood, as Mrs Div is now officially pregnant again.

Baby eta sometime around early June next year. Though if the first one is anything to go by, he/she could easily be here a bit earlier.

Mrs Div and I are delighted as you might imagine, though her delight is presently being tempered by severe morning sickness. The 'morning' bit being something of a misnomer since it actually lasts all day.

The Mrs being pregnant has a range of secondary impacts. Some more beneficial than others.

On the plus side - if pregnancy one is anything to go by - it means I'll have more time at the tables, since the Mrs will be often off early to bed, leaving me at a loose end.

On the negative side, I'd better enjoy the action at the tables, since it's all I'm going to get for quite a while!

My record at knocking up the Mrs is pretty impressive. In PokerTracker terms it would probably go something like:

Games Played:2
Periods Seen:0
Win % at Showdown:100%

With that in mind, Mrs Div jokingly suggested she keep me occupied for the next nine months or so by putting me out to stud - and I don't think she meant the 7-card variety.

I'm not averse to this idea, and I'd be happy to negotiate with any interested parties.

Suffice to say, if you happen to look like...

Golden Skin
Golden Globes
Golden Memories

...negotiations shouldn't be too protracted. Whereas if you are more along the lines of...

Neigh ChanceorIt Lives! to wait til the Euromillions cheque clears before you call me.

Congrats Div!!!

Div said...

Thanks guys (and girl).

All these congratulations remind me of telling the father-in-law about the first pregnancy.

I had to bite my lip hard to avoid telling him 'it was a pleasure' as he was offering his congratulations.
