    Just got my legs back for a bit of boogieing at Mike and Hazels wedding tonight!!

    I did tell my wife that I imagine the Bob Graham and childbirth must be rather similar:

    - both last for quite a long time
    - both involve significant pain which gets worse towards the end
    - other people will be there to help you but in the end it's down to you

    She just gave me a clout round the ears though

    If you'd have paid a bit more you could have got overnight delivery!

    But seriously, well done and despite what everyone says there's nothing comes close to fatherhood! (Mrs Goose Fat's labour went on for longer than a BG!!!)

    My 3 year old Gosling wants to do the "Big Bob", as he calls it, with me.....has anyone done it with a toddler on their shoulders yet?

    Hmmm... been up Skidda with sprog on back... so I suppose that's a start... might have to do it in 42 legs .
    Tao begets one. One begets two. Two begets all things.
