Also known as the 'Robber Baby"... :-)

There's two things people tend to not cover in mentioning first baby.

1. Your IQ drops about 10 points per kid. This is just a fact of life, after about three you stop noticing and it's kind of pleasant really.

2. And now there's one kid in the house, the entire planet will start (almost immediately) with 'ah, you'll go again...'. And going again is pretty good in all, they have a playmate etc. But what you have to watch out for is when they outnumber you...If you go more than two... that's the biggie, there's three of them and you and Mom are easier to back into a corner.

But hey, having three in any major metropolitan area is probably against several city ordinances, so you're probably good there.

Oh there's one more thing....

You're never going to be more in love in your life....

Merlin used to crank. He’s not cranking any more.

This is an essay about family, priorities, and Shakey’s Pizza, and it’s probably the best thing he’s written. »

This is the video of Merlin’s keynote at Webstock 2011. The one where he cried. You should watch it. »
