At some point, I decided that this would be a good day to give birth, because it's my dad's birthday. And of course, because it's a big day in Portgual. And then I found out that it's an equally big day in Italy. And now, I realize that it's also ANZAC day (why did it never hit me that ANZAC day is on my dad's birthday?) According to this, it was even a holiday for the Roman empire. How cool is that?
So, now, it's up to the baby to decide to be born. I'm just waiting patiently for something to happen. Oh, and if she isn't here today, then she has orders to wait until May. Which of course she'll obey. In the meantime, while I'm waiting, let me wish you all a happy (insert name of preferred April 25th holiday here).

I used to regularly tell people there that it was a very nice gesture to celebrate the day, and to name their bridge in honor of my dad's birthday, but that really, wasn't it a bit much?*
