Elizabeth and I are proud to announce the arrival of our son in June of 2021. No one in this world could ever be so humbled and excited at the chance to be a dad. On ultrasounds our baby is healthy, active and even appeared to wave at us!
Congrats again bud, this is definitely not a test of the new signature function.

Hoorah for Mother Elizabeth, fledgling Samantha and Papa Brainbomb. President Eden sees beyond my Daffy facade of Daffiness and is too polite to mention the blunt information seeking methodology on my part of feigning Daffiness.
Please use edible crayons when encouraging young fledgling Samantha at the Art caper and consider singing said fledgling to sleep with the 3Witches recipe from MacBeth as a gentle lullaby. Tips on parenting are a hazard of becoming a parent.

congratulations! It will all be different now.

One suggestion, take it or leave it, but I found it invaluable. Every night, read to your child for like 30 minutes. They don't need to understand it. Just read to them. Eventually as they age, start pointing to the words as you read. Then when they are in 4th or 5th grade, start reading adult books that are good, and that have some words they and maybe you don't know. Every time you run across a hard word, write it down, and have them memorize 10 a week.

The two benefits we got. Sleeping was a natural thing. A lot of kids fuss and scream and refuse to go to sleep. Reading will slow their minds down and they will relax and bedtime becomes easy. Also, you establish a rhythm which is read then sleep... and then sleep comes easy.

The other benefit, is that your kid will be smart with words very early and throughout their lives. Mine became an incredibly fast reader who could retain nearly everything, and she could write well too.

Do not rely on the schools to educate your child. If you want an independent smart child, you need to teach those skills. Reading is the first big step

That is excellent advice from Johnny Big Horse imho. You make it fun in the initial stages when they're still wriggly and not wanting to go to sleep, doing funny voices and facial expressions and get them interested then gradually lower the energy levels after ten minutes, the funny voices get softer and they lie calmer in their bed and this is when you make the transition to it being intellectually interesting and read calmly and it's usually a guaranteed way of getting them to sleep, and sleep well.
