As of today, I am an uncle! Whee!

kritzit and freedomrider made me one. And they met on LJ! So LJ made me an uncle!

(the only question gnawing at me: which should I teach the newborn first, Latin or Greek?)

Current Mood: silly
Current Music: Oscar Peterson -- For Count

Congratulations :). I guess that at this point everything is Greek to him so you might as well start with Latin

Whee! Congratulations! (Hebrew is probably a nice one to begin with...)

Congratulations, Uncle ijon!

Also the answer is Greek, obviously. Latin is easy.

Congratulations! Avuncularity suits you...

Should you be lucky enough to get lots and lots of babysitting opportunities, you will probably learn more than you teach. Babies are their own persons, and pretty much TELL you which you'll teach them. They are most definitely not blank slates.

You'll see... and being an aunt or uncle is the best gig in the world, I think.

I say that you teach the child Mycenaean Greek, then Attic Greek.

Congratulations. Give my best to kritzit...and if she needs any tips on nursing i'm here from her. I think the kid would appreciate much more if you show him how to take a computer apart.

I vote for Latin - only the first book of Harry Potter is translated into Greek, while the first two books are translated into Latin.

המון מזל טוב! מצטער שלא רשמתי בזמן, אבל הייתי בחו"ל.
מה דעתך ללמד אותו עברית? זאת לא משימה פשוטה בימים שילדים אומרים "אל אני לא יקח את זה ממֶך".
