I’ve waited a while to tell you this and I’ve been struggling to find a Scifi way to say it but I’m all out of ideas. I toyed with ‘It’s a trap’ or ‘Is it a bird, is it plane, no it’s a ….’. Scifi hubby suggested ‘Luke – I am your father’ but that doesn’t quite cut it either. So I’m just going to say it: I’m pregnant. We’re having a baby. A Scifi baby. In fact a Scifi son. What have I let myself in for?
We’re both over the moon. Scifi hubby has been excitedly buying all sorts of baby things since we found out (some of the funnier moments coming in future posts). I love the fact that I’m the one looking at prams, cots, baby baths, baby monitors etc whilst he’s hunting for the perfect Superman baby-grow
So the obvious questions and answers:
Baby is due at Christmas
I’m feeling fine but beginning to look like a hippo (if he dares call me Jabba he’s a dead Scifi hubby)
No the baby will not be called anything comic book or Scifi related. I’m diligently checking all name suggestions to make sure none sneak through.
The nursery is going to be superhero themed but both DC and Marvel – apparently our child will be “bi-comic curious”
We already have several Batman baby grows, and Superman, and Star Wars, and Iron Man…
If it is a superhero in there then my money is on a baby Batman. It certainly feels like he’s practicing his martial arts already.
