Age is a social construct. I let my children decide how old they are on any given day.

7,2, 7 months....all girls. I suck at pretty much every job I've ever done. Partly because I never found anything I really wanted to do. I do daddy pretty well. My kids certainly aren't going to get cheated in the dad being involved Department

When I had my first girl I had an old-timer tell me "let me give you some advice. You're going to think you got this kid until she's 18 and she leaves the house. You really have her until she's about 8 because she gets friends and she's realizes you don't know shitt".

I respect that - - A LOT.

 

mine are 12 and 9 - and make no mistake - I'm all in on the parenting thing - you have to be - and for those that don't want to be, they just shouldn't be parents.

 

Being a parent has to be what you want to do, it has to be your priority, it can't be something that gets in the way of all the other stuff you want to do.

Using that "who's been irritating me less" criteria seven months in.... still not Trump and his fans. I grew up with these people. I understand them. They actually seem normal, surprising as it may seem to you. These liberals on the other hand: cop bashing, white shaming, trannie loving, kneeling during the national anthem. Fock them. They're the ones that really freak me out and it's not even close to being close.

2 boys. 1 and 4.

The 4 years old is a pain in the ass. It's like he searches for things to have meltdowns over. It has been an extremely challenging 4 years.

The 1 year old is the sweetest kid ever and never stops smiling.

Can't tell you how much I love this quote... can't be many things more satisfying than that... sitting back in old age, seeing your kids and grand kids grown, healthy, happy, and successful. Your work and you legacy is complete.

Son (22) just graduated and has a job as a product marketing manager with a major semiconductor company.  I'm incredibly proud of him as I wanted to help (I sell into that industry so have a bazillion contacts) but he wanted to do it on his own.

 

Daughter (almost 20) just started an internship.  She is in Pittsburgh for 2 weeks of training then heads to San Diego for 2.5 months to help repair commercial circuit breakers.  :o  Which probably means hold the wrench for the person who actually knows how not to get electricuted... nonetheless, also proud of her getting that job.  Also she had lived in a dorm and a shared house the past two years but will be living with us next school year which should be interesting.

 

Daughter (almost 17) is the one with diabetes and also at that PITA age for girls.  Thankfully I know from her older sister that it goes away eventually... mostly... :D

 

All ages are fun and challenging with kids, in different ways.  :cheers:

17 son, 2 days left in Jr year so may as well call him a Sr.  God how time flies. Remember kindergarten like it was yesterday.   I keep reminding him that he has a year left of the easy life.  He's not getting it.  Stay tuned for announcement of military service.
