      Re: new baby

      Congratulations! I bet she's the most beautiful ever born! (At least till the next one ) Don't push it too much with your wife, you're treading dangerous ground there - I remember those days all too well. My husband was sure he was the most helpful guy ever to come along, we just didn't always see the same things that needed to be done. I guess.....

          Hey Mike,
          Congratulations to you and your wife – and of course to that brand new tax deduction. As I recall, they cost one heck of a lot more then the money you save on taxes – but it sure is worth it anyway. Have you picked a collage for her yet? Stonybrook has a pretty good reputation, and she could still bring her laundry home for mom to do. That’s quite a saving right there.

          I’ve lived in Hempstead (when I was first married), then had a house in East Meadow, and from there we moved out to the Township of Huntington. What part of Nassau do you live in? Maybe if we ever get back to the Island we could come see your bundle of joy – ya’ think?

          Enjoy, enjoy, enjoy – they grow up way to fast.
          Burt

            Congratulations on your new addition to the family.

            Before you know it she will be in kindergarten. Time certainly does fly. My daughter is 34 and I remember her birth. It was worth all the pain

                          There is nothing like as precious as a new baby!! Cherish each and every moment because they go by so fast!! My "baby" is 2 now nad I assure you the last two years have FLOWN by. May God bless you, your wife, and the little one!! Just remember a frazzeled new mom may not see the humor in the womans work stuff :P . I know you were joking but let me give you a tip that my husband missed. All those late night feedings and constant diaper changings are bonding time... even if it is a little rough. If you miss out on all that you are missing out on alot. Have fun and love every minute they are only that little once!!!
