Hello bbb,

CONGRATULATIONS To the happy parents-to-be! :clap:

Does this mean you will turn into Bodom_Good_Boy now? - after all you have to set the example for the precious little bundle arriving in June. :jumping:

Jeez that made me laugh!
Oh dear, I think I better get myself a chair closer to the ground so I don't hurt myself when I fall off it again!
Congrats again Bodum "Good" Boy!
Ahh haaa!

in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.

Haha yeah its definitely time to grow up! Actually bodom bad boy is my cat's name. He's the bad one not me lol. But seriously thanks for all the well wishes. They are really really appreciated more than you know. Thanks!

:namaste:
The heart of the path is SO simple. No need for long explanations. Give up clinging to love and hate, just rest with things as they are. That is all I do in my own practice. Do not try to become anything. Do not make yourself into anything. Do not be a meditator. Do not become enlightened. When you sit, let it be. When you walk, let it be. Grasp at nothing. Resist nothing. Of course, there are dozens of meditation techniques to develop samadhi and many kinds of vipassana. But it all comes back to this - just let it all be. Step over here where it is cool, out of the battle. - Ajahn Chah

Wonderful news!!! Congrats :) Is this your first? (Sorry if you already answered this.. I zipped thru the comments.) I have two boys, and I miss that 'girl enery' (being the only girl in the house). I'm very happy for you and your wife.
