Nodling Generator

Welcome back to As For Me And My House, the place where the rubber meets the road.

I am a Nodling generator.

Astute readers of my blog will have noticed a new seal that appeared several weeks ago without explanation. It shows a small footprint encircled by the words "Official Nodlings Generator". The Nodlings are, of course, my children.

I am happy to say the immediate cause of the seal is that Mrs. Nod and I are expecting our sixth child. "Fearful and Wonderful" stuff (ref. Psalm 139:14). If it is a boy, we'll have an even split. We'll be like a Catholic Brady Bunch.

As a father I am my children's progenitor, my wife their co-creator. This is the one power that we have that most directly images God the Father, the Creator. He allows us to share in His creative power. God made from nothing, ex nihilo, we continue what He has caused into being. To put it a bit more crudely, being able to make a baby is a little like being God.

Hooray! I'm so thrilled for you, Mrs. Nod and the Nodlings! As we get closer to the due date, I'll throw you a virtual baby shower! I can't wait to see what LarryD and Joe(Defend Us in Battle) pick out! hahahhaahaha That's funny just to think about. Hooray for #6!

Now that you're catching up, I may have to figure out a way to stay ahead. Oh, Computer Guy!

When is Mrs Nod due?

Nod said...

Thank you, thank you, it's very exciting, isn't it?

We are expecting the baby at the end of February which will put it near Blynken's (#2), but she doesn't seem to mind.

@Joe - remember half of the Nodlings are girls, so maybe they need mascara and hockey masks like this girl?

LarryD said...

Congrats, Mr Nod.

I'm glad I have 6+ months to pick out the perfect gift. IT has to be juuuuuuust right....

Nod said...

@LarryD - Why do I have the feeling it will be, oh I don't know, snarky?
