    Talking I'm gonna be a daddy!

    Well, the significant other and I got the news last friday that we are expecting! She went for Lymes Disease symptoms and they did a cursery pregancy test...turns out she doesn't have Lymes. I still don't feel old enough to be a father. Anyone know where we can get a set of infant/child turnouts? (both of us are FF/EMS, so this child is "doomed" to the life of the Brotherhood).
    Due date is around Feb 19th. Wish us luck!
    The comments made by me are my opinions only, not of the Fire and EMS services I am affiliated with.

    I have lost my mind..has anyone seen it? it's not worth much..but it's mine

    Talking Ok.................

    First, CONGRATS, From Laura and I.

    Second, Fast Forward about 25 years, put you and the Mrs where my wife and I were one night:

    Somewhere after O-Dark-Thirty, Cold, Windy, Snow on the ground, I'm standing in front of a burning Farmhouse, doing Chief stuff. She walks over to me, bringing a cup of Coffee. My sense of humor kicks in, and I ask "If we're both here, who's watching the Kids?" Her reply: One Daughter is taking a line to the Basement, One Daughter is getting warm in back of my Ambulance, One Son is trying to get the second supply line up the driveway, the other isn't here yet, but he's on the way. Any more Questions?"

    How sweet. Congrats!

    as far as a turnout outfit for infants try this site.

    http://www.brandsonsale.com/ca-002197.html

    To cute.

    You can always buy a yellow jacket and matching pants, then sew on a reflective strip or two. Some retailers do make full turn outs for toddlers, as young as 3. Pricey but adorable and worth it.

    congrads man, make sure you get the little tyke used to wearing leather helmets at a young age, wouldn't want him growing up thinking the salad bowls are what real fireman wear
