Just wanted to share my good news with you all. I'm having a baby! YAY!!!!!However, as alluded to in Splat's recent thread about kero fumes, I'll no longer be able to play with fire. Well, not for the next 6-7 months anyway.

FlashFire, Frenzie and myself performed at a club the other night for a very appreciative audience (uv - not fire). I'm hoping that I'll be able to keep doing this sort of performance for a while yet.My obstetrician tells me it's all good until being pregnant starts to affect my centre of gravity and balance. So firedancing mum's.... how long have I got?Cheers,Finn

Posted:Tons of good news and happy occasions on the board the last few months..Congradulations!! My wife and I (man that sounds weird) said we'd wait a few yrs before children, but i want to be a young father. I know that sounds odd, but i dont want to be 35 and have a child, then when he/she is a pre-teen be almost 50! I assume its mostly up to her, so we'll see.What are you wanting? Boy or a Girl?? Both have their quarks i guess, either way a blessing.I wouldnt think the fumes would be too healthy. But im not a doctor by any means, but i would definately ask before."MOTHER IS THE NAME FOR gOD ON THE LIPS AND HEARTS OF ALL CHILDREN"- The Crow.Super'------------------"Only the warrior that hears the call will know when to leave, Where to go" -unknown"We are the music makers, and we are the dreamers of the dreams"- Willy Wonka
