My wife and I had a baby on Tuesday and just got home from the hospital yesterday. We are so thrilled to have our first baby, a beautiful girl we've named Samantha Beatrice. (She'll be creating a BGG account as soon as I teach her how to type.)

I was prepared for sleepless nights and baby cries, but what I didn't expect was crazy game dreams during the few minutes of sleep I was able to catch during the nights at the hospital on my terrible little fold out bed.

On the first night, I woke up when a doctor came into the room and had a distinct memory of a dream where I was trying to decide if I should take three cubes of the same color or five random cubes since I had had a baby. Then, later on, I was woken up again with another dream in which I thought, "Hooray! I've got a baby! That means I get to choose three countries on the map I can control!"

So, who knows what those mean because so far, having a newborn in my house hasn't helped my game playing schedule at all!


Samantha waves hello to BGG!

Congrats!

I also had very weird dreams in the hours after my first daughter was born. Not about games, but I dreamt that she'd fallen off of the bed in the delivery room and rolled under it. I woke up (I was sleeping on the couch in the delivery room), convinced the dream was real, and started looking for her under the bed. gulp

Well, you could be one of the unlucky ones that has a baby that won't allow anyone to sleep for any longer than half an hour. Then, you won't have any dreams whatsoever!

I lucked out: The little guy has been sleeping most of the night since he was 5 weeks.

I've corrected the thread title. blush
The typo must have resulted from that lack of sleep people keep mentioning.

Thanks for the kind comments everyone!

Sam says one cousin isn't enough! She wants you and your wife to make her a new friend. She says you can borrow the test tube where she was created if you need it.

Well now that you made it believable--congratulations! I wish I knew how to change all the typos in MY thread titles. Sadly, I'm already well-versed in having children.
