Hi all. This is Captain Mom. This is my first contribution to the blog, but hopefully not the last. First of all, I would like to go on record that I don't like my name, Captain Mom. It is just dorky. I would have preferred "The incubator," which was Cicada's original choice. I am going to change my name, and am willing to take suggestions. As long as we are on the topic of names, my sister is very offended that we call our little boy "The Bean" on our blog. She says his name is "The Prince," which is the name my sister, we shall call her "Her Majesty," pronounced as his nickname and the one all of my family uses. So, we may switch back and forth between "The Bean" and "The Prince;" don't be confused by this. One final note on names: what does it say about the women in my family that my mother is called "She who must be obeyed," my sister is "Her Majesty," and I am "Captain Mom?" On second thought, we may need to revamp all three of those names.
