Excuses

Hi guys,

Just wanna say that i might not be online as much as usual for the next few weeks since i got myself a baby girl this morning so i am going to be a little preoccupied with her.

I will try and answer any questions or whatever just like i normally do but i just wanna apologise in advance if it takes me a little longer to reply.

Cheers

Dan

CONGRATULATIONS Dan!! or should I say Father Dan

There are no words that can describe how one feels when you have the young one in your arms. Hope the Mrs. gets enough rest the next few weeks.

Start a trust account for the young one

Dan mate, I was meaning to tell you: Start a trust (education, etc) account for the young one. It doesn't have to be much and add to it consistently every week or biweekly (say money equivalent to a tankfull of petrol). This will help immensely when she's ready to go to college/university

Also, it must be specified in writing she doesn't get control of the fund until at least 25 years of age.

Congratulations again mate. Three cheers.

Eddy

Thanks very much for the kind words and the advice guys.

No matter how many times i tell Alex to get some sleep she refuses she must not trust me with the baby or something i don't know why if i am going to break the baby what better place than in a hospital right.

Just go to think of a name now i have heard Mary Jane mentioned but then i have heard so many other names today that one might not even be remotely related to the baby.

Congratulations! Put that 06 SL65AMG in a freezer and give it to her when she is 16.

Congrats Dan! If Alex doesn't go to sleep, wrap her up tightly in a blanket. I figure if it works on the newborn, it might work on her too! Otherwise, crush a few pills in her meal, that'll do it

Congrats but does this mean that either the SL or the SLK are going to be traded in for a MPV?

Thanks again guys,
I got back to the hospital this evening and the little one was fast asleep and Alex assured me that she has just woken up so got talking about names and it looks like i was correct with the guesstimate and it is going to be Mary Jane.

They wont be home tomorrow but should be on Monday so i have a little bit of piece and quiet left to go yet.

I am going to be keeping the cars i just could not even think about getting rid of either the little Honda should do the job for the moment and then the Lexus should be here to take over from it and corkscrew i don't have a freezer big enough for the SL mate and anyways i could not be without either of my four wheeled babies for very long i get withdrawal symptoms just walking away from them for the night.

What do you think of the name guys it would be great to be able to say it has the SLKWorld.com stamp of approval on it.

Mary Jane Dean has a great ring to it. Sounds perfect, loveable and respectable.
