    The single greatest thing that has ever happened to me for sure.

    The only really important thing one can do for the world.

    it still amazes me that Beth didn't have children, three beautiful kids, 2 girls and 1 boy.

    Rewarding and stressful.

    I used to say I never wanted to have kids, but now I wouldn't live without her.

    My daughter's birthday is today too! Just turned 6.

    it's like a movie where a semi hot aunt finds a vibrator instead of a flaslight in a drawer then power comes back on with her still holding the vibrator

    Best financial disaster I ever participated in. Not for everybody. There are a lot of train wreck families out there. Keeping your kids from becoming dysfunctional drug addicted shitheads has been my biggest worry. I am lucky to say that so far so good. I attribute my success by making sure my kids interact with other kids from stable families. I really keep an eye on that. When I look back at my crazy youth anyone I knew who was a lunatic fuck up (including myself) came from a demented home. Alot of people should not be allowed to breed.

    I know some of the shit I just said sounded a little arrogant but I am partially joking. The commitment that you must make to your kids is not. Do not do unless you are completely prepared to go all in and do it right.

    I have one if you are interested in a trade for a Gibson Goldtop or turquoise Les Paul. He's seven. Speaks decent English. Doesn't eat a whole lot. Comes with a college trust and full set of clothes. With the right training, he could mow a lawn or two . . . . .

    The greatest worst job ever. Fucking ungrateful kids that run your life and body into the ground and make you wanna pull your hair from your head and you can't even bare to imagine your life without them.

    Steve Martin is pretty funny. Gets a little preachy at the end.

    Two sons, two grand daughters.

    My name is Dad, and the little ones call me Gramps.

    It's awesome!

    the worst human beings are these douche bag childfree people.

    They feel sitting and watching netflix all weekend is more important than contributing to society.

    at times my wife and I look at our friends who had no children with the same envy as the ones with no children look at those who do. they have time and money to take off on great vacations and drive newer cars but dont get the sense of family and adventure we get. its the wildest, scariest, funniest, heart breaking, heart melting experience you can ever have. its the same as getting married but more - if you cant be happy by putting the ones you love before yourself then be careful

    Ages 1-3... won't let you sleep, cry and poop, can't communicate. You have to fake that it's a joy or people think you ar nuts.

    4-6... you watch Barney and Caillou and try to seem interested... playing games with them is mind numbing... they catch a cold every two weeks. You have to fake it's a joy or people think you are nuts.

    7-9... they like being around you... a little bit of attitude setting in... probably the best and only ages you'll ever enjoy.

    10-12... they become more manipulative and headstrong. Still kinda like you but becoming more a pain in the ass.

    13-14... puberty, hormones, hell.

    That's as far as I've gotten.

    Enjoy.
