Greetings, readers. It has been some time since I last posted, but there is a reason for this that I will get into later. First off, Jen, the boys, and I have recently been sucked into the fascinating world Doctor Who.
This was always a show that I wanted to start watching, but never seemed to have the time or means in order to get into it properly. However, during the last month, we have already watched the first two seasons and are now on the third. Jen and I first reserved the first season to after the boys went down to sleep, mainly to ensure that the show is appropriate for such young ages. Many of our friends enjoy the show, and often post related topics or pictures on Facebook, so we kind of knew what we were getting in to. My advise for anyone wanting to get the true picture of the show should start back with season one (2005) with the episode “Rose.” It’s the starting point for new watchers that are not familiar with the first eight doctors that ended in the late 80’s.
Now we have a true family of Whovians. We decided to introduce the boys to Doctor Who with the first Christmas Special, and since then they have been asking to watch more almost every day. Zachary has taken to “The Doctor saved the day!” After each episode, and this has also helped us whenever he has a nightmare or gets scared of some “monster.” We simply say that the Doctor will fix it, and he calms down.
Now that I have somewhat explained away the title of this post, since the Tardis is, after, bigger on the inside, I will go into the reason I have been silent this last month. Shortly after the last post I made, we found out that Jen is once again pregnant. Neither of us wanted to accidentally post something related to the pregnancy until it was more likely to stick this time, and we are proud to announce that yesterday was the first doctor visit, and everything appears to be healthy. I know that Jen is chomping on the bit to get the word out already, and we made sure to call as much family as we could before making it public on the Internet, but here is one of my forms of announcement.
Now that Doctor Who is a regular topic in the house, we have made our own bad puns regarding every day occurrences or talked about things to do that are Doctor Who themed. One of my ideas is a Dalek-shaped coffee maker that yells “CA-FFIE-NATE!” when the coffee is ready, or having a Tardis painted front door. Last night while discussing how to announce our news, I also made the joke that Jen is “getting bigger on the inside” due to the growth of the baby. Luckily for me, she’s used to my humor and didn’t get offended.
Now that we can go public with the news again, and we are already past week nine in the pregnancy, I will try to be a bit more active here (I know, I’ve said that before). You can expect humorous pregnancy stories, things the kids have said in regards to it, and the usual geeky topics that pervade our household.
Until next time: Allons-y!!!
