I am very happy to announce the birth of Little Invader Sophie. She arrived in the world just a few days ago and has already made both her parents extremely happy. I myself am extra happy with this of course because it fulfills stage two of my invasion plans: introduce an undercover sleeper agent in to Dutch society.
I’ve experienced this whole childhood thing before from the point of view of the kid. Now it’s time to experience it from the point of view of the parent.
My blogging schedule is bound to be in flux for a little while (you might have already noticed) as we adjust to our new family life. Those nappies won’t change themselves. This means there might be the occasional gap and some posts might be shorter than normal for a little while but fear not, this blog is not going anywhere. I enjoy writing for it way too much. Plus, I still have those exciting new plans I keep on teasing about (which are in motion).
This blog will not suddenly turn into a Daddy blog either. There might be the occasional Daddy post but for the most part I don’t think Sophie will be very happy with me if twenty years from now a potential boss googles her just before job interview and finds a story about her first bath or the time she decided to decorate the living room walls with crayon and called everything Elmo.
Our lives have changed forever. It’s going to be scary. It’s going to be exciting. It’s going to be a great adventure.
And now, a very Dutch tradition, Alex eating a beschuit met muisjes:
