I'm going to be a father.
(waits while people go through various stages of shock and laughter)
No, it's NOT Roni. Thanks to a quirk in the space-time continuum, the woman bearing my mother's third grandchild is none other than dcatt. Yes, we had sex once in two years, toward the end of her period, with condoms the entire time.
Can you say "meant to be"? I knew you could.
I'm sure to detail everything in the posts to come. Suffice it to say that I need to credit dragonwitchling and lunar_phoenix for holding me together when I received the news (which, goddess be thanked, was when I was spending some time with the two of them... and, bless them, they've kept it reasonably quiet for several months).
Just think... the boy in the picture is about to be a dad. Admittedly it's going to be a VERY non-standard relationship dynamic, but would you have expected anything less from me?
