Sinki update for Thursday

This is the Mr. posting. Mrs. DeSinki is sitting home with a small cloud above her head. She is irritated because she has all of this time on her hands due to bed rest, and today the internet connection is not working correctly. So she asked her marvelous, witty, and super hunky husband to post, so that no one would worry.

As far as the little sinklet goes, he is not choosing to show his head. Like the groundhog that his birth will honor, he is afraid to see his shadow. The reason for the groundhog metaphor (by the way) is that as near as we can figure, conception occcured around the time of groundhogs day last spring/winter. To further this metaphor, I walked out of the house to see a fat, well fed groundhog scurry under the neighbors fence yesterday, after snooping around the remains of the tomato patch from this summer.

Mrs. Sinki and I thought that it might be a sign that the groundhogs were keeping track of of the offspring of groundhogs day. As far as I am concerned, I feel that our son has a fairy groundhog's mother! And for those of you that think I may be leaving an obtuse clue to the boys name, it ISN"T Phil! (Is that an actual clue, number three? Four?)

From one set of groundhog parents to another wishing you the best. Can't wait to see the little one. He and Amelia can be paydate buddies.

Wow, if there's anything more nerve wracking than playing this waiting game with your blood pressure and Baby "Groundhog" Sinki, its playing the waiting game without an internet connection! You are quite a woman.

PS Thanks for posting, Jim.

Hmmm that Groundhog's party contributed to perhaps 3 (including yours) pregnancies? hmmm Phil is a fertility god? Thank God I was late to the party. hmmm
