    Default Parenthood

    Hi guys,

    I'd like to share something personal with you today, and that is the fact of me becoming a father(!) - In April next year our son/daughter is expected and I'm as excited as I am overwhelmed. I realize I'm in for quite the challenge, but also very eager to start this new chapter in my life.

    When I launched this website almost 11 years ago, I remember my first news post saying:

    Now the time has come for me to have a real one. Even so, DQ will always be my baby, despite my periods of in-activeness and seemingly negligence. I will try to allow Castle to have my continued attention, but I'm suspecting a slow-down (when you thought it couldn't be slower) in production speed, whether I'd like that or not.

    I want to send my kind regards to all you members still hanging around this old dusty place. I guess that means there's still something here for you to collect, in whatever form, and I'm glad it does. Take care of yourselves everybody

    - Oscar

    Just in case anyone needed to know exactly how old we all are.

    Also congrats! Have y'all decided on name(s)?

    Michael Kitz: Continue.
    Rachel Constantine: The fact that it recorded static isn't what interests me. What interests me is that it recorded approximately eighteen hours of it.

    My heart has never melted that fast. Lloyd or one of the other characters could always work as well though, if you really want to name it after one of the castle characters!

    But we all know Romanov is the best baby name around.

    Joke aside, big gratulations on becoming a father! It's going to be a big challenge ahead but I feel this will be rewarding in the end.

    "Oscar, why is the baby a stick figure?"

    Seriously though, congrats! What are you, some kind of adult, now?

    Better than beating us for cutting into your booze money, I guess.

    Just kidding, I'm actually super happy for you. May you and your family always live in happiness.

    Holy schnitzel, congratz With your patience I'm sure you'll be an awesome father. Seriously, big congratz on you

    omg, here's my opportunity to give parental advice! We all know it's very important to pass down your knowledge to the next generation. You should subtly introduce msPaint at kindergarten-level and move on to relics such as Flash CS3 at middle-school-level. Watch as shit goes down, your kid will develop something awesome in no time 8)

    If she doesn't agree just go with Some Other Guy, or Dash's suggestion

    Lol, I'm not sure if I'm serious. But now that I keep thinking of it, perhaps a more subtle middle name

    Many thanks! Nice to see you lurking as well. Are you a parent by any chance already?

    I'm still not sure. Either that or some kind of savage.

    Thanks! I'll do my best It's actually a very interesting topic if any artistic "skills" will be passed on or not.

    You'll have to do more than have a kid to stop me from lurking!

    My current life state makes being a parent myself impossible(plus I'm single since some years back), but in a weird way, I've thinking a lot about having a son. I don't know why I want boys, they seem more funnier to be a parent to.
