A New Member of the Family

Don't worry; I haven't had any kids. I haven't had a period in about 20 years but, somehow, I'm still not pregnant. I don't know if I mentioned this before but my eldest niece is pregnant. Or rather, she was pregnant until a few days ago. She wasn't going into labour so she was induced on Sunday afternoon. It was about 48 hours later (the girl does nothing quickly) that her son Shey officially entered the world. 

The little dude's only just been born and he's already angry about something. 
This feat makes me a grand uncle, which sounds like something no man in his 20s should be calling himself. Then again, I was an uncle at about 7 so it shouldn't be that much of a surprise. Still, if this trend continues, I could very well become a great grand uncle by the time I'm 50. 

Fuck. 

I wonder how my dad feels about being a great grandfather in his mid-60s. 

Speaking of my dad, we'll be seeing the happy couple (and the baby) some time later today. The birth was a little rough on my niece (a 48-hour labour will do that to a girl) so we decided to let her rest for a few days before going around. 

Needless to say, today is going to be one busy day. I also have a good chunk of work to get done. Until then though, congrats on your new baby niecebeast. Better you than me.

  1. Congratulations! It's indeed quite something to be a grand uncle already. But then you're probably much younger than your nice, so not that big a surprise.
    (Are you even a grand uncle in this case though, instead of just a distant uncle?)
