    Ian Lee is taking parental leave
    Hi all,

    I wanted to let everyone know that my wife and I are expecting our
    first child at the end of April and I will be taking parental leave starting
    April 12, 2005. My official date of returning to work is Jan 3, 2006.

    Thank you all for your support during my time here. While I am on leave, you can direct any questions regarding our affiliate program to Annie Tseng at affiliates AT eyiproducts DOT com.

    Once again, thank you for all your support and I will talk to everyone soon!

    Congratulations on the upcoming birth! How wonderful for your wife and newborn that you will be there with them! I wish my husband had that option when we had our children.

    You're taking the whole 9 Months parental leave?

    Are you serious or this is an April Fools' early post?

    I'm sorry Ian, but I always thought that only a pregnant woman can get away with that excuse (Like morning sickness. ) in order to avoid working for the whole 9 Months of pregnancy.
    But if you're serious and expecting your first then, go for it.

    Congratulations to you and your wife.

    Sal.

    Ian will be back in a couple of weeks... just as soon as his wife decides she would rather be lone.... till it's time to give birth...

    my wife told me if i didn't leave she would not be help responsible for her actions...
    needless to say I made myself scarce till it was all over..

    congrats..

    Thank you everyone for your notes and emails.

    Mr Sal: I am definitely looking forward to the 36 weeks of parental leave. We are lucky in Canada that a few years ago, the laws changed... for the better in my opinion. I am entitled to a max of 37 weeks. No April fool's joke here.

    I am definitely lucky to have this opportunity.

    ok, back to tieing things up at work.
