Talking Best excuse ever for buying a Jem 20th

I found out this morning that I am going to be a dad.

I said to my wife, 'I will really have to make sure that I get a Jem 20th now because it will be the year that our first child is born'.

My wife smiled and said, 'Yer I suppose, thats a good point'.

That has to be my best excuse ever for me buying a guitar and my wife agreed!

Guitar 17 here we come!

She's probably sick of arguing with you about the last 16.

Re: Best excuse ever for buying a Jem 20th

and its a good excuse to get a JEM 30th (its his 10th birthday) and a JEM 40th too - cos its his 20th birthday
although I remember my first kiddie - what you have to do is divide up your credit cards between the supermarket, the pharmacy, the hospital car park and the nappy companies. this will leave you living on gruel for some time

completely normal parenting !
congratulations

I picked up my first jem the day my girlfriend (now wife) found out that she was pregnant.

It was a wonderful day. We were both sitting there smiling and she asked how I felt. I told her that this was the happiest day of my life. I had never felt so complete, and was looking forward to the journey ahead.

She smiled and said how happy she was too.

I told her that I couldn't believe how amazing it was to play and that the tone just blew me away.

Surpirisingly enough we are still together.
